You will need:

  • Paper
  • Glue
  • Paint
  • Sponge
  • Scissors
  • Gold pen
  • Canvas


  1. Sponge different colours of paint onto a sheet of plain paper and leave to dry. We added gold paint in for some interest.
  2. Cut the tree trunk shape out and lots of little heart shapes from the paper.
  3. Glue the tree shape down how you wish on the canvas. If you want to paint the canvas background beforehand make sure this is dry before gluing anything.
  4. Finally, use a metallic marker to write a love message onto your canvas.
