candy hearts

There’s something about conversation hearts I just love. They aren’t necessarily my favorite candy to eat, but they are just to cute…so I always end up buying some. I wanted to make some sort of valentine with all the candy I bought… so this is what I came up with.

I bought some sparkling pomegranate at Fresh and Easy a few months back and decided they needed to get opened up.  After the pop was gone I rinsed them out and took off the sticker labels. They were pretty sticky still so I had to use some goo gone to get it all off. Worked like a charm!

Make sure to let the bottles dry overnight to make sure all the water has evaporated.

After I filled up the jars with candy I added a little tulle to add a little more frill. Then I printed some “conversations” out with my Silhouette and stuck those on too.

Now you have a fun treat to give your Valentine! ;)

    I love love this, but I never buy anything with bottles, except beer. somehow I dont think it'll have quite the same effect…

    Very cute idea. I love the way conversation hearts look – even though like you I'm not crazy about eating them! Thanks for linking to ABC's Show and Tell.

    These bottles are adorable! I love how simple and inexpensive they are to do. And I have all that stuff around! My girls will love these. Great idea. And your photography is great. Don't give up!

    Really Cute! What textile did you use for the lettering? I am pretty new at this.

    How did you get the crimped “caps” sealed again after you filled with candy? Adorable idea!
