Valentine's Day Spin Art

BFF, Best Friends Forever Picture Frame craft

Transform an ordinary salad spinner into a DIY spin art machine. It’s never been easier to get in the Valentine’s Day spirit than by making these fun, colourful creations!



Supplies Needed: No. 2 Pencil, Crayola Scissors, Crayola Washable Kids’ Paint, Crayola Markers, Crayola Glitter Glue, Cardstock, Salad spinner

*Crayola Paints, Markers, and Glitter Glue are art materials only (not food grade). We recommend using the salad spinner for art projects only.



  • 1.

    On a piece of cardstock or heavy paper, draw the outline of a heart using a No. 2 Pencil. Cut out the shape using a pair of Crayola Scissors.

  • 2.

    Remove the lid of a salad spinner and place the shape into the bottom of the spinner. Carefully pour small drops of Crayola Washable Kids’ Paint all over the heart. For best results, use 2-3 colours per heart.

  • 3.

    Bring the salad spinner to full speed for approximately 30 seconds, or until you’ve reached your desired design. Watch as the paint wicks into unique patterns as it spins!

  • 4.

    Remove the heart from the salad spinner and set aside to dry. Helpful hint: be sure there are no large globs of paint left, as this will increase dry time.

  • 5.

    Once fully dried, add messages and colourful accents with Crayola Markers and Crayola Glitter Glue. Experiment making spin art with all of your favorite Crayola colour combinations.

  • 6.

    Hang your creations as Valentine’s Day decorations or design a unique card for your special Valentine!
