Wax Hearts

When a craft is marked with a danger disclaimer I know it is the perfect craft for my kids!

I saw this one featured on The Crafty Crow from Here we are together

Basically we painted some paper with water paints. Once dry we dripped wax on the painting from a red candle. Any coloured candle would probably do.

Cut painting into heart shapes (or not) and hang on the window to allow the light to give it a bit of a stained glass effect.

If you don't like your kids playing with candles maybe oil in a dropper would give the same see-throughy effect??

Even though Valentines Day doesn't mean much to me, my wedding anniversary is in February too , and who can resist heart crafts with their kids? We all need more love at home :)

It is cool how science can be applied to art.
