Sweetheart Soda Pop


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! ;)

*P.S. I’ve been trying to shoot in manual mode on my new camera, so these pictures are far from perfect… but practice makes perfect right?*

    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!

    How do you get the bottle caps back on?

      Hey Heather! Mine screwed back on… they weren’t the pop lids. I found them at Fresh and Easy.
