HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Happy Valentine's Day Art and Craft Project

Happy Valentine's Day Art and Craft Project

I couldn’t resist doing a Valentine’s Day Art and Craft project even though it isn’t for the library. I have my Birds Craft event coming up February 23rd at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library, which is after Valentine’s Day. I definitely will organize a Valentine project event in time for next year.

This is my usual combo of painting and sticking. I definitely got carried away with the small beads spelling LOVE—not for children, more likely a precision mechanical robot! I hope someone may find it useful to inspire their own project. See more ideas on my Art and Craft Projects page.
