Valentine’s Day is this Friday. Are you ready? I have had two different Valentine garland ideas in the past month. The first one was this Rose Petal Garland.

For the second garland, I wanted to use large conversation hearts. I found small ones, but the large ones were harder to find since not all stores carry them.

After I found them, I experimented with how to put holes into them so that I could string them into a heart garland. I sort of knew that my first idea of using a sewing needle would not work. I heated it with a candle, but it was very obvious that it was not going to work.

For my second idea, I used the tiniest drill bit I could find. Then I set the drill on the table, and held the heart up to the bit.

I hoped that drilling it would not crack or split the candy heart. And it did not! I succeeded in drilling two tiny holes in each heart, so that I could string the hearts into a cutesy conversation heart garland. I did not even break one heart in this project!

Here is a video to show you how I did it!

You know, it would be sooo easy to bring those hearts closer together to make a cute Valentine candy necklace. Hmmmm, maybe you will see one more conversation heart project here before Valentine’s Day!

I created this heart garland to go on my miniature Pine Cone Tree.

I liked my little pine cone tree with the candy heart garland, but it seemed a little plain. So to add just the right touch I created a topper to go with it. I used my glue gun to attach 5 large hearts to each other. Then I added 5 small hearts on top of that. Lastly, I hot glued a toothpick to the back so that I could insert the topper into the top of my pine cone tree.

Would you agree that it looks better with the topper on it?! This has been such a fun project to share with you. I hope you enjoyed it!
