Hello creative friends, it’s Nina-Marie Trapani here with you! I love making home decor projects, and I thought it would be fun to take some clay and create a heart wall hanging for Valentine’s Day! Now if you don’t want to make a wall hanging, you could adapt this idea into simple ornaments that you could give to people you love!
You have the option of using either pre-made or homemade clay cut with cookie cutters. Because of the fact that I was making so many of these hearts for this wall hanging, I opted to use homemade clay. The recipe is a combination of 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of salt, and 3/4 cup of water. To bake the clay I set my oven temp at 180 degrees F and baked the hearts for about and hour and a half.
To color the hearts, you can use paint and alcohol inks. I used both for my hearts to create a variety of designs.
The only other embellishment I added to these hearts were a few Gumdrop Hearts from Tim Holtz.
Be sure to watch the video below to see all the steps I took in creating this wall hanging! It was a lot of fun and would make a great decor piece leading up to Valentine’s Day!
