I am loving the create your own conversation hearts!  We made a cookie candy hearts bouquet for little man’s teacher and today we’re bringing you candy heart necklaces for the little ladies.

This is super easy and cheap to create.  I first learned the technique from Aunt Kathy. She made one with money for my son’s graduation and I thought it would be fun to incorporate the same idea into a kid-friendly Valentine’s Day goody.

Supplies Needed:

  • Candy (I used conversation hearts and wrote each little girl’s name on the center heart.)
  • Plastic wrap
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Write your message or names on the conversation hearts you plan on using.
  2. Lay a piece of plastic wrap down on a flat surface.
  3. Add your candy and space out evenly.
  4. Fold plastic over and wrap around.
  5. Cut pieces of ribbon and tie around sections, making little bows.
  6. Add an extra piece of ribbon to each plastic wrapped end.  This is how they’ll tie it around their neck to wear. Making a bow makes it easy to get off.
