Quick & Easy Valentines Deco - Beer Mats

DIY Valentines Day Beer Mat

  • Coat the beer mats with Gesso
  • Paint them pink
  • After it dries, draw heart shapes with a slightly darker shade of pink
  • Outline the pink hearts with a black micro tip pen
  • Add highlights on the pink hearts using a white gel pen
  • Hand letter or stamp in a sentiment of your choice
  • After it dries completely, apply a layer or two of varnish (here I used glossy finish) and let dry

DIY Valentines Day Beer Mat

  • Gesso the beer mat, paint it green
  • After it dries, paint blue strips on the upper half of the mat. You can also use  markers for this.
  • Draw white hearts on and in between the blue strips using a white gel pen. You can outline those hearts with a darker shade of blue
  • Hand letter or stamp in a sentiment of your choice
  • After it dries completely, apply a layer or two of varnish (here I used glossy finish)

 

Quick DIY Hearts Tag

  • On a watercolor note card, draw small hearts on the upper half of the card using  different colors (I used  the fine tip of Tombow dual brush pens)
  • Next draw strips of pink using the brush tip. With a brush pen or a regular paint brush, blend the color downwards to get a slightly faded look
  • Repeat the process with brown and green below pink
  • Hand letter or stamp in a sentiment of your choice on the bottom painted area
