A string heart is a nice way to give a light and romantic atmosphere to your home all year round.


To make this, you will need:

4.      A Heart Wall Lamp



Valentine's Day Creative Craft


For Valentine's Day, nothing is better than soft lighting! This wall lamp will give you the romantic atmosphere you need for that special evening.


You will need:


-          A string of red lights,

-          A thick foam board,

-          An extension cord.


With a pencil, start by drawing a heart on your foam board, which you have previously cut in a circle. Then, using a craft knife or box cutter, make holes at regular intervals.


After this step, feed your lights through the holes. Be gentle to avoid damaging the foam board. With the leftover foam board, create a small box that will both hide the wires and stand the lamp out a bit from the wall. Finally, connect the lights to your extension, which will be plugged into a wall socket, to light your lamp.
