How to Make a Salt Painted Heart Craft
Use the cookie cutters and trace the hearts onto the white cardstock paper. Pour glue along the outlines of the hearts. Pour a generous amount of salt onto the hearts to cover the glue. Make sure you cover all of the glue with salt.
Set aside to dry.
Gently shake the remainder of the salt off of the page (be careful during this process so that the salt isn’t knocked off of the hearts.)
Choose the watercolor paint colors that you want to use for the hearts. Dip your paintbrush into the water and make sure the paintbrush has enough water and watercolor paint on it.
Gently paint the salt with the watercolors. You should be able to see the paint spread through the salt as you paint around the hearts. Continue this until all hearts are completed.
Set aside to dry and display!
