Here's what you need to make a Pixel Heart for Valentine's Day:

- Graph Paper – Dollar Tree

Here's how to create a Pixel Heart with Dollar Tree Supplies:
To begin the Pixel Heart Home Décor project, gather all supplies. Lay out 49 of the mini wooden craft cubes in a seven-by-seven square on your work surface. Using graph paper, create a pattern by coloring in the graph paper squares with a variety of colors of Dual Brush Pens. Tombow Dual Brush Pens are my favorite markers because they have a large brush tip for lettering and a smaller bullet tip for coloring and come in 108 bright and vibrant colors.
Using the photo as a guide, paint the background blocks with Titanium White acrylic paint with a small flat paintbrush. Let dry. Paint the heart blocks with Country Red acrylic paint and set aside to let the paint dry completely. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Once dry, flip all the mini wooden craft cubes over, keeping them in the same order. On the second side, paint all background blocks with Country Red acrylic paint. Using a small flat paintbrush, paint the heart blocks with Baby Pink acrylic paint. Let paint dry completely.
Attach the first row of blocks together using MONO Multi Liquid Glue and the fine tip applicator. Continue gluing blocks together until all seven rows are complete. Blocks will be slightly different in height and width, which just makes the project more unique. Then attach each of the seven rows together with MONO Multi Liquid Glue. Secure the square vertically and horizontally with rubber bands and set aside to allow glue to dry.
Once dry, wrap black and white gingham ribbon around the outside edge of the pixel heart block and tie in a knot at the top. Finish with a bow and trim the ribbon ends with scissors to prevent them from fraying.
