Conversation Heart Cone and Wreath

 One of the (*many*) things I dislike about moving is that I often cannot find my stuff!!!

As in, I can't find my box of Valentine's decorations! Lame. I suspect my Mr. Wonderful has buried it under a heap of other boxes in the unfinished basement (aka "the dungeon" according to my girls), but as of yet, it has not been uncovered.  And since Mr. Wonderful really is being wonderful and trying to finish this unfinished basement, I don't really want to haul all the boxes out and make a mess of it.

Alas, I suppose I'll have to make some more Valentine's day decor. :) Oh darn. 

All my (missing) Valentine's decorations are classic red and I love them.  But, I decided to go a little softer and pastel for my kitchen/dining area and make one of these super fun conversation heart decorations. 

I must say, it was a really fun little craft to do and my girls (5 and almost 3) thought that it was crazy fun to be "Crafting with Candy."

Things did get a little intense though--I was hoping to use craft glue to glue the hearts on, but that was clearly not going to work (doesn't dry fast enough). So, I had to whip out the ol' glue gun. Amazingly enough, we all survived burn-free. Oh, we got a few scares and touches that were too-hot-for-comfort but no tears were shed and no actual burns. Nothing short of a miracle.

Also, I wanted to find a white Styrofoam cone to use, but I could only find a green floral cone. We painted it pink. I think white would look better, but pink is great and it made my little girls oh-so-happy. 

Fun quick craft. :) 

Happy crafting!

  4. How do u keep these from going bad?

  5. Hi Jeune,
    You know, I don't think conversation hearts do go bad! At least to look at...I wouldn't eat them or anything once they get that old. I could be wrong though. And admittedly, they got rather buggered up because I didn't pack them away well after last season, so I ended up just trashing mine anyway.


It is always fun to hear from our readers. Thanks for stopping by!
