my son being mega-proud of his dino-mite valentines - priceless
1. glue dinos to lids. let dry THOROUGHLY.
2. spray with spray paint (several coats required)
3. fill with treats and a sweet note
i think i sprayed these guys five times. they are still slightly tacky to the touch a day later, but hey, they're elementary school valentines. i had to spray them in the light of the floodlights in our flower bed. it was raining all day yesterday and i was too chicken to do more than these samples on the front porch. hello if i get high gloss red spray paint on the concrete right outside my front door i will be traumatized. i finished them up in the dark this evening, but i think if you did them in the grass in the light of day you might manage in two coats.
the idea off pinterest, of course. love my pinboards and i really try to use them once in a while.
the 2nd grade valentines. but it sure is fun tryinng!
