Make this simple DIY wood Valentine’s Day necklace for someone special this year. Or, attach it to a planter, or turn it into a keyring.

I’m thrilled to be back at Mira Mesa Living magazine sharing a fun Valentine’s Day craft project for the January/February edition.  These wood necklaces are simple to make and would make a lovely gift.

  • Wood hearts in 2 sizes (available at craft stores)
  • Silver glitter acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Drill (and small drill bit)
  • Cord in red
  • Directions:


Drill a small hole toward the top of each heart, not too close to the top though; you don’t want to risk splitting the

Have your child paint the smaller heart with two coats of silver glitter paint. Set aside to dry after each coat.

Your child can then thread the cord through the hole in the small heart, and then through the hole in the large
heart. Tie a knot at the top of the heart, and then tie the ends of the cord together to make a necklace.

Yes it is and thank you :).  I hadn't tried Roberto's, but we do head to Cotixan's every Tuesday night – Taco Tuesday :).

Is this Mira Mesa, CA? I went to high school at Mira Mesa High 1987–90! My husband and I visited Mira Mesa in 2005 for our 10 year anniversary and I was shocked how much that town has changed! It was my husband’s first time there and I had alwasy talked about Carne Asada Nachos from Robertos/ Albertos, but when we got there, it wasn’t Robertos/ Albertos, but another Mexican name.
Anyway, congrats! How exciting!
