These cardboard hearts made from cereal boxes are SO easy and look really artsy and kind of profesh. Let me tell you how I made them!

You know I love using materials that are free. One of my faves is cereal boxes. They have that cardboard box look, but easier to cut! I save practically every cereal box we ever eat, and we eat a ton of cereal. I’m always trying to find ways to make the humble cereal box feel more sophisticated. This time I used acrylic paints to make these mini paintings feel more sophisticated. Inspired by something I pinned years and years ago, it always stuck in my head.

This whole project just felt very relaxing and satisfying to me. I cut the hearts and squares at night while we were all watching a movie. Then the next day I painted them while the kids were at school, listening to podcasts. I could mix and match colors all day! The beauty of this art activity is that even a novice can feel successful.
