  • 1 Paint hearts Chalkboard Clothespins Valentine Decoration

    Paint wooden hearts using pink, red and white craft paint and a foam brush.

  • 2 Paint with chalkboard coating Chalkboard Clothespins Valentine Decoration

    After the paint is dry (this should only take 5 to 10 minutes), apply 2 coats of Clear Chalkboard Coating, following the package instruction. By doing this you are turning the painted wooden hearts into chalkboards.

  • 3 Glue on clothespins Chalkboard Clothespins Valentine Decoration

    After the Chalkboard Clear Coating is dry (about 20 minutes) glue clothespins to the back of each heart using a hot glue gun.

  • 4 Prime hearts Chalkboard Clothespins Valentine Decoration

    Allow 24 hours for the coating to cure. Once the wait period is over, prime the hearts by gently rubbing a piece of chalk over each heart and wiping off. Write your descriptions on each heart and a cute message on the top.
