Paint the rose pot Baby Pink. Sponge Titanium White on the rim and at the center front of the pot.

Paint the wood hearts True Red. When dry, paint “Be Mine” on the large heart with Titanium White.

Glue wiggle eyes on the head, then rub the cheeks with Pink chalk. Paint the mouth with True Red.

Glue the small True Red hearts around the pot rim. Glue the large heart at the center of the pot.

Glue the two ball halves (hands) at each side of the heart.

Press the head onto the pot rim. Remove the head, apply lo-temp glue to the rim, then press the head back in place.

Remove the self-stick paper backing from the bow. Use lo-temp glue to apply the bow to the top of the girl's head. Distribute and glue the spiral curls of the ribbon around the head.
