Paint your board’s lines.

Using a paint marker, paint over the chalk lines that you marked for the board.

I did not go all the way to the edge of my heart, but liked the look of leaving about a quarter of an inch of space from the edge.

If your painted lines aren’t as dark as you would like them to be, paint over them a second time.

Make sure that your first coat has dried before adding the second coat.

Until Next time,






  1. Tammy, did you paint the heart on the bag or was it on the bag when you bought it? Did you get these bags at Hobby Lobby or the Dollar Tree?

  2. Cute idea! The Dollar Tree is loaded with lots of inspiration, but i am still surprised that they raised prices 25%!!

    1. Patti that extra 25 cents makes a huge difference at check out. Plus, if you are at a Super Store some of the items are $3.00 and $5.00 so you have to be careful.

    1. Yes! I think loves of different candies would work. I ended up putting candy in the bag and also game them some small round red glass beads to use for the game. We both know that candy is not going to last a long time!
