Things To Prepare

Actually this is my upcycled project; I used my previous Pumpkin Place Card and re-purpose it as a Valentine Paper Weight.

1.Gather a handful of popsicle and tie it with rubber band. For smaller pumpkin, cut the popsicle into two.

2.Apply some wood glue on top and bottom of the popsicle pumpkin and let it sit for while until it’s dry.

3.Paint the undone paper weight with black paint. Let it dry.

4.Paint upper and below side with gold paint. Let it dry.

5.Take a red sparkling pipe cleaner and tilt it around the paper weight with the shape of a heart on top. And your Valentine’s gift is done!
