Sweetheart Valentine Wreath

How 'bout a little sweetheart wreath for your.....well............Sweetheart?? This one is yet another simple simple simple craft to do. Here's what you need:
Sweetheart Candies (Be sure to use the brand Sweethearts....Conversation Hearts are too powdery and don't glue very well at all. )
Wreath Shape
Fabric 
Hot Glue
Ribbon
~Wrap your wreath with a long thin strip of fabric (the color of your choosing) and hot glue the two ends in place. 

~Hot glue each and every one of those Sweethearts on to the wreath....make a pattern, don't make a pattern......no big whoop....it's a candy wreath. We can't go wrong. 
~Tie a ribbon in a loop around the wreath and attach where you know your Sweetheart will see it and look at you adoringly and think.......GAWD she has some time on her hands!! Just kidding. He or she had better love it, is all I'm saying.

  2. Good thing my boys are too short to be able to reach a wreath like that :). I'm not sure how many hearts would actually make it onto the wreath if I made one but yours looks fantastic!

  13. this is so cool! do u plan to store your wreath for next year? Can it store, or would it get super gross? I may have to try it anyway, I love it and the kids always love any reason to work with candy.
