Marbled Wooden Bead Valentines

Even though Valentine’s day is not a highly celebrated event at our house, I can appreciate a shot of the brightly saturated pinks around the house in the middle of a Seattle winter. This DIY Valentine is quick, easy, fun, and addictive. Got wooden beads and paint? You’re all set to make these!

Using a square or round baking pan with sides, cover the inside completely with wax paper or plastic wrap. Squirt acrylic craft paint in 3-4 colors into the pan, as shown below.

Next, roll wooden craft beads in the paint by tilting the pan from side to side, covering the bead but not mixing the paints together too much.

Allow to dry.
