I needed a little bit of Valentine’s cheer around here. We usually don’t do much to decorate, other than display the kids heart themed crafts.
But I thought it would be fun to try a candy wreath.
I took an 8 inch cake board and cut a circle from the inside with an Exacto knife.
Then I opened a bag of conversation hearts and heated up the glue gun. Before I started gluing I tied a pretty ribbon around the wreath. Then I glued on the hearts, no special tricks here-just glue and glue and glue some more. I did glue them saying down, because some of them were faded or off center.
When it was all done I found a home for it on the top of my crafty thing. I added a little vintage postage card I’ve had for a while, backed with ribbon.
There you have it. Easy and cute, and my teeth will thank me for gluing those hearts instead of eating them!
