Here's a fun project that will let your child hammer home just how much a dear friend or relative means to her.
Brush paint on front and sides of wood and let it dry thoroughly. If desired, sand the painted surface to create an antique look.
Draw a heart shape on the wood using a pencil. Then, hammer the nails halfway into the wood, spacing them evenly along the heart outline.
Wrap and twist lengths of wire and ball chain around the nails. You can also embellish the design with a wire arrow.
For a finishing touch, add a Valentine's message using letters cut from the magazines or newspaper.
