Valentine Photo Holder

Once your kids have outgrown their ABC blocks, recycle them into a fun way to display photos of your Valentine.
All you need are the blocks that spell out love (or the name of your Valentine), red and white paint, 2 wooden hearts, paintbrush, pencil, rag, & hot glue.
 Paint the blocks white...
 While the blocks are drying, paint the hearts red...
 Dip a rag into the red paint and wipe it across the raised parts of the blocks. You can use a paintbrush if you prefer.
 Use the block as a guide to draw a straight line approximately 1/2 inch from the edge of one of the hearts...
 Add hot glue along the line...
 Glue the hearts together. The hot glue is just thick enough to leave a small gap between the hearts where there is no glue so there's a place to insert a photo.
 Glue the blocks together, then glue the hearts onto one of the blocks...
 Add a photo to the hearts and you have a lovely way to display your Valentine.
