Dollar Store DIY: Heart Plate Wall Hanging

Dollar Store DIY: Heart Plate Wall Hanging

    Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and couples are getting ready to celebrate their love for one another.  Now that I am a mom, I like to include my sons in all of our holiday celebrations.  Some of the ways that I express how much I love them is by making little sweetheart packages for them every year that contain some of their favorite chocolates and sweets.

    I also like to create personalized gifts for them without spending a lot of money.  This year, I spent some time in our local Dollar Store and shopped around for some affordable arts and crafts.  Since we just bought them a new bedroom set and are redecorating their bedroom, I thought making a heart plate wall hanging would be the perfect gift for this Valentine’s Day.  Not only can they hang it up in their room, but every time they look at it they will be reminded of how much I love both of them.

Dollar Store DIY: Heart Plate Wall Hanging

Supplies needed:

  • Small white plate
  • Assorted foam hearts
  • Themed ribbon
  • Hot glue, glue gun


1. Begin by taking the foam hearts and arranging them on the plate WITHOUT glue. This way you can decide on your pattern without gluing anything down just yet.

2. Once you decide on your pattern, add a dab of glue to the back of each heart and press it to the plate. Create the pattern you wish using the foam hearts and your craft glue.

3. Allow the hearts to dry. Cut a length of ribbon to be used as the hanger.

4. Add a generous amount of hot glue to the back of the plate. Press the ribbon to the plate and hold until dry.

5. Tie the ribbon into a bow and prepare to hang or display as is.

    That is a fun and inexpensive decoration. I would put it on a plate stand too.

  18. So simple and cute. My girls would love helping me make this and I love the ribbon hanger. So pretty! Thanks for sharing.

  19. Such a cute idea, and definitely something my kids will love. They love seasonal crafts, and I never am able to come up with good ideas.

  20. One of the things I love about the dollar store is the ability to find creative things you can put together and make something meaningful (and priceless!). Thanks for your ideas! I will definitely go to the dollar store with my kid soon!

  21. This is such a cute DIY project for kids. I like how simple and affordable it is using Dollar Store items.

  22. Beautiful! This is a nice and easy craft to remind your children that you love them more than anything in this world! My kids are all adults now, but I never fail to remind them, not only on Valentine’s Day but everyday, that I love them so much.

  23. This is simple yet sweet. I like it, and it looks very easy to make. I particularly like the fact that it didn’t cost you much!!

  24. This is such a good idea and so creative. I don’t have any children so Valentine’s Day isn’t really a big deal for my husband and I but we do try to go to dinner.

  25. This is a cute Valentine’s Day craft to share with the grade school kiddos.

  26. I love dollar store crafts because they seem to be better than ones i spend more money on. My kids love doing these with me and we can make a bunch for the grandparents and aunts! Love this one!

  27. What a fun idea. I love bringing out little decorations for things like Valentine’s (easter too!) and this would be fun to make with my girls to put out for display!

  31. Aww these are so cute! I love how inexpensive this project is and it’s something I can have my kids help me with! We love going to the dollar store! Making gifts that don’t break the bank is always great! Thanks!

  32. I love the Dollar Tree! ( it’s tree here) I find tons of stuff to do for easy fun crafts that don’t end up costing me a bundle. This is a cute one! It’d be nice for teachers, just use that fabric paint or something to have the kids draw the names on.

  33. I love dollar store crafts because they are affordable but also, when you are done looking at them or when they aren’t seasonably appropriate, you don’t have to feel so bad tossing them out or putting them in storage. I love that you include your littles on this holiday!
