Recycled Plastic Valentine HeartsJanuary 20, 2016
We seem to collect dozens of plastic tubs in our house so I was happy to find a way to recycle them into pretty valentine heart decorations.
I'm over at The Pinning Mama today with a tutorial to turn an old margarine tub into these pretty hanging hearts using the popular "marbling with nail polish" technique.
Over the last year or so I've seen so many objects beautified with this technique I've been itching to try it out on something.
They are super inexpensive and such fun to make, this nail polish marbling is like magic. It is a bit messy though and you have very little control over how your heart comes out - for me that was part of the fun!
Pop on over to The Pinning Mama now to see the full step by step tutorial here
Use them as decorations, gift tags, card toppers or anything else you can think of! Enjoy!
