Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. That means it’s the perfect time to start thinking about gifts for your loved ones.

What’s the best way to show someone how much you love them? With a handmade gift, of course!

Instead of making something intricate and difficult, why not utilize everyone’s favorite type of Valentine’s candy? Say hello to conversation hearts.

Since these hearts tend to look better than they taste, they’re the perfect addition to any Valentine’s craft. All you’ll need to add this adorable twist to anything special is a glue gun, the candy, and a little imagination.

For example, you can fashion an adorable photo frame with the help of some candy hearts, or even make a wreath by gluing hearts to a cookie cutter.

You can also light up the room by adorning a candle with some candy hearts, or wear them by attaching them to some earrings.

How you decide to utilize your candy hearts is up to you, just make sure you save enough for all the fun crafts!
