Props for Valentine Performance

We have an annual Valentine banquet as a fund raiser for kids to attend pre-teen camp and we are going to need a little entertainment. So I started planning a song for our puppet team, the PIT Crew, to perform.

I'm planning to use a song called "Put the Love of God in Your Heart".  It's a parody of "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" from Creative Ministries RPM collection.

I decided to keep it simple with the props and just a few puppets.  The new bunny will definitely be involved!

We have to have a Jesus in a heart prop, naturally...

Here is the heart with the first coat of red paint on the outside...

It doesn't seem to show up in the picture but there is a hinge of tape in the middle so the heart can open up and you'll see Jesus inside.

Here is a shrub I just cut out with an x-acto knife...

Here is a close up of the shrub.  Not sure why I drew all the details because when I put the base coat on, they will disappear.

I'll post new pictures when they are all done.  I love making things with items I already have and so far these are made with leftovers from previous projects. :)

Some of the props - almost done!


  1. What kind of paint do you use for your props?

    1. Hi Angela!
      For these I just used acrylic craft paint from Walmart. If I were painting for black light, they actually have some neon ones that glow, but these are better but they are also more expensive!
