Valentine Heart Sculptures

When I first saw these heart sculptures from Jean at The Artful Parent, I thought, “hey, those are cute!”  Then I saw that they were made using plaster and balloons and I thought, “wait…  what?”  So I clicked over and wow, was I ever amazed!  This process is genius, and suitable for everyone from adults down to the kiddos – though young children may have difficulty forming a heart shape on their own.  The resulting sculptures make a cute holiday display, and could also be used as paper weights or as garden decorations!  [how to make plaster heart sculptures]
