by Claire Winlow (follow)
Easy (884)      5 to 10s (616)      Valentines Day (47)      Heart (29)      Chalk (8)     
We often think of chalk only in terms of using on a chalkboard, however there are other creative projects you can try with chalk.



Chalk, art, blur, heart, valentine


These chalk blur hearts would make an unusual Valentine's card but you can use the same effect on any pattern template. The blurring effect makes them look like they are gently glowing.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Black card
Chalk
Cotton wool
Old card e.g cereal box

Method
Cut a heart template from an old cereal box.
Place the template on the black card.



Chalk, art, blur, heart, valentine


Draw around the template with a piece of chalk.



Chalk, art, blur, heart, valentine


Using some cotton wool, blur out the edges of the chalk by dragging the cotton wool outwards from the heart.



Chalk, art, blur, heart, valentine


You can use the template again to create more hearts, side by side or overlapping.
