DIY Kids Craft | Watercolor Valentine Bunting

by Brittany Ryan Mathiowetz January 25, 2015

Januarys in Minnesota can get long, so it's important for us to keep busy indoors if it's too cold to get outside and play. 

My daughter has a thing for the arts. She loves coloring, crafting, and especially painting! So yesterday, after addressing all her valentines, we decided to do a little art project to decorate for the holiday: watercolor bunting!

The process was simple. All you need are some watercolors, paper, card stock, crayons, and ribbon.

First, I cut triangles out of the card stock and traced them on the paper. We decided the bunting should say "Be ♥ Mine", so I needed seven triangles. We drew one letter/character on each triangle in white crayon, then started painting!

I asked Ezri what colors we should use to decorate for Valentine's Day, and after the usual pink, red, and purple she threw in some blues, greens, and yellows too! I think the variety turned out great; colorful, just like her!

After the masterpieces dried, we cut each triangle and glued them to a piece of card stock. We used a paper punch to put holes in the tops of each triangle, and finally strung it together using a piece of ribbon. Done!
