We’ve been working on a few Valentine’s Day projects since our theme this month is Art. (I know, total FAIL for not sharing our theme so far this month. But we’re actually doing an art theme for the month of January AND February. So we’ll be sharing more on that later.)
I’ve been loving all of the “toilet paper roll stamping” projects on Pinterest, so we decided to make one of our own. We made an art piece that doubles as a February calendar, with a special nod to the 14th.
And yes, making the stamp is really as easy as it looks.
To make, just take a toilet paper roll (we used a paper towel roll) and make an crease at the end, making your heart. Then, holding in place, secure with a piece of tape across the top to hold the shape. That’s it.
We used red finger paint and started making our masterpieces. Isaiah had a blast making his “abstract piece” and I went to work on our calendar.
Twenty-eight hearts for twenty-eight days, and a special painted heart for Valentine’s Day. I decided against adding the month name, because I loved the minimal look. And the best part? The little imperfections, splatters, and smears are what make the art look unique! It’s now framed on our mantel, and makes the perfect holiday countdown.
