Secret Admirer Heart Rock Valentines

Inspired by The Artful Parent's heart rock valentine decorations, I suggested to Karuna the idea of making fabric heart rocks. We talked about what to do with the rocks once we made them. Giving them as Valentines was a definite, but since she already had card valentines that she had made earlier, we came up with the idea to leave them around the neighborhood as secret admirer surprises.
Supplies to make rock valentines:
-Smooth river rocks
-Fabric and Scissors
-Mod Podge
-Paint brush
1) Cut fabric into heart shape  2) paint Mod Podge onto rock  3) Place heart onto rock  4) Paint over heart with Mod Podge

After letting the rocks dry overnight,  Karuna set off to deliver her secret valentines to friends' houses around the neighborhood. At one neighbors house, she even found a fairy door- the perfect place to leave a valentine rock!
On Valentines Day, Karuna will deliver more heart rocks with her name on the back, to reveal the secret admirer. Until then...


  1. This is lovely! I think we'll be copying you...

    Have you heard the Martin and Sylvia story about Valentine's Day, where they deliver secret valentines to friends and neighbors? ( My daughter loves it, and wants to deliver some secrets, too.

    1. Thanks Lise! I've never heard of Sparkle Stories, but it sounds great. I'll have to play it for my daughter.
      Happy Valentines Day!

  2. What a cute idea. Those heart rocks are adorable!
