Create A Conversation Hearts Candy Frame This Valentine’s Day!

We just love Valentine’s Day, but let’s face it, between taking your sweetheart out for dinner and all those gifts you bought, it can get pretty pricey. But one gift you can give is one your sweetie will love.  Why?  Because it’s made by…. YOU!  This easy-to-make craft is filled with sentimental value and shows that you care enough to have taken the time to create a meaningful gift that is so very special.

Now, because we’re candy people, our gift has to include candy and for this craft, we’re using Conversation Hearts. They’re the perfect ingredients to create a super cute Valentine’s Day photo frame that’s easy to make and you’ll even have some candy leftover for snacking while you’re putting it together!

Preschool Inspirations gave us the idea to share this sweet frame, so let’s see what we need to begin creating:

  • 4 Jumbo Craft Sticks
  • Conversation hearts
  • Glue Gun
  • Glossy Mod Podge (this is a sticky glue that will hold the hearts to the frame)
  • Cheap paintbrush
  • Disposable plate or something similar
  • Magnets or string to display your frame
  • A cover for your work surface to keep the mod podge off of it

Now that we have all that we need to get crafting, let’s put our Conversation Hearts Picture Frame together:

  1. Glue the craft sticks together using the glue gun
  2. Put some Mod Podge on a plate and use the paintbrush to “paint” the craft sticks with it
  3. Stick the Conversation Hearts to the frame
  4. Let the frame sit for a few minutes until the hearts are firmly in place
  5. Once the hearts are secure, paint the frame and hearts with more Mod Podge to give it a glossy finish
  6. When everything is dry, add a photo as well as some magnets or string to the back of the frame so it can be hung and displayed

If you’re not as crafty as you want to be, or just can’t seem to find any Mod Podge at your local craft store, you can simply use the hot glue from your glue gun to secure the Conversation Hearts to your picture frame.

Of course, no Valentine’s Day is complete without giving your sweetheart some sweets, so be sure to shop our Valentine’s Day candy selection to pick up some seasonal favorites.
