Wanna do a Valentine Craft?

Do you remember the candy christmas tree our daughter made during the holidays?? Well we all thought it turned out so great! That made me start thinking of what we could make for the valentine's day holiday. We had just bought some large conversation hearts, so I knew it had to include those. So when at the dollar store I spotted a photo frame with a flat front, I knew this would be perfect with the conversation hearts!


I wanted the frame black, so out came the trusty spray paint.





Once the frame was dry, I laid out the candy hearts on the frame so I had the proper spacing. Once I liked the layout, I hot glued each piece of candy to the frame.

So easy!! After I was done there were a few of those pesky hot glue strings so I took my handy blow dryer to it & voila no more hot glue strings. Now just spray with some polyurethane & add a photo to it and enjoy!! Isn't it cute??? I think it is! Especially the sweet girl in the frame...my Callie at age 5.




Happy Crafting!

Now that is adorable!
Wish I'd thought of that when I still had a Girl Scout troop.

But I am going to pass the idea along to my frame-crazy daughter, who also happens to love conversation hearts. My girls used to play a sort of Mad-Libs game with them; it was lots of fun.
Thanks for the idea!
