Candy Heart Frames

Candy Heart Frames

My boys wanted to make a Valentine’s craft of their own. I dug around in my supplies and came up with a super easy and cute Valentine’s Day kids craft – conversation heart photo frames! Also great for teacher gifts!

 Candy Heart Frames Supplies:

  • Unfinished wood frames (I picked up ours for $1 each at Michaels)
  • Craft paint (I love the Glamour Dust line from DecoArt! Best glitter paint EVER!)
  • Candy conversation hearts
  • Tacky glue or low temperature glue gun

 Candy Heart Frames Directions:

Start by painting the blank frame. My boys chose to paint their frames a solid color first and then top it with a glittery layer.

Brush a thin layer of tacky glue on to the face of the frame, and start gluing on the candy hearts. Take care that the layer of glue isn’t too thick or else the candies run the risk of melting/dissolving in the glue if it takes too long to dry. Alternately, a low temperature glue gun also works really well to adhere the conversations hearts to the frames.

Allow to dry, add a photo, and ta da – you’re done! Super easy, and totally cute! I think these would make great Valentine’s Day gifts for grandparents, aunts and friends!
