Simple Valentine’s Day crafts are not only fun, but they can add just the right amount of love to any room in your home. Today, I’m going to show you how I created a super easy piece for the tiered tray in my dining room. You’ll also find links to a few other Valentine’s Day inspired projects I’ve done and added to that tray. Let’s get started with today’s project!

I started my project by gathering a few supplies. I’ve included the links to everything along with photos to help you find what you’ll need!
- Unfinished Wood Heart Cutout
- Fabric Roses – Option 1 OR Option 2
- 3.5 x 6 Reclaimed Wood
- Red and White Gingham Fabric
- Pinking Shears
- Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in the color Fluff
- Mod Podge
- Gingham Ribbon
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue
Once I had everything gathered, I cut my piece of wood to measure 6 inches tall.
You can always adjust the size of your project based upon where you will be using it.
Next, I used my heart cutout to trace the shape on a piece of fabric.
Then, I used my pinking shears to cut the heart shape out of the fabric. Notice, I cut inside the line I had traced to make the shape just a bit smaller than my cutout.
Before glueing the fabric to the heart cutout using Mod Podge, I used Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in the color Fluff to paint the heart white. This step made the fabric pop off of the surface nicely. Just be sure to let the paint dry before using the Mod Podge.
To finish this project off, I glued the heart to the wood and then added a ribbon and felt rose to the top portion of the wood. You can see below how I wrapped the ribbon and layered it to create a base for the flower to be glued onto.
Once the ribbon was in place, I glued the flower on top and the project was ready for my display.
You can see in the photo below, that I’ve added lots of Valentine’s Day themed decor to the tiered tray in my dining room. This is a great way to add a bit of holiday or seasonal decor to a room without changing up too much of your everyday decor.
