with valentine's day coming up, we created a fun DIY craft for your sweet kiddos! we used our love notes large napkins for this cute craft.
find the supplies needed and step-by-step instructions below!
- mod podge
- foam brushes
- love notes large napkins
- metal bucket (can be found at craft stores, like this one here)
begin by unfolding the napkins! you really want only one layer of napkin to make adhering easy and to avoid wrinkling. next, paint the bucket with mod podge. make sure to cover the entire surface of the bucket, but don’t lay it on too thick!
apply the unfolded napkins to the bucket, trimming off any extra that hangs over the edges. smooth out the napkins so that no crinkles are present. let it dry for 10-15 minutes.
if needed, apply another layer of mod podge to the napkins! it is not necessary, but will preserve the design should you want to reuse it next year. or, you can remove the napkins and decorate it for another occasion using the same method and different themed napkins.
fill the bucket with shredded paper, confetti, or your favorite filler! this will allow the gifts to sit nicely on top and bring instant excitement the second your little lays eyes on it.
for items to include, we suggest choosing a variety of adorable gifts, crafty things, and accessories! we are really loving our temporary tattoos, they are such a fun addition to any gift bundle. you can find them by clicking here!
if you want to go the extra mile, create a scavenger hunt for them to find the gift basket. below are suggestions on clues to place around your house!
