DIY Candy Hearts

Making your own Candy Hearts is a sweet way to Celebrate Valentine’s Day! It is so easy to make your own DIY candy hearts, and then box them up in little boxes to pass out to friends! You can add extracts to your hearts when you make them to give them a custom flavor… maybe you like peppermint, almond, lemon, or anise… each adds its own special touch to the holiday!

This project is part of Craft Lighting Holiday. Each day this week I’ve been sharing a fun and fast Valentine’s Day craft that can be done in 15 minutes or less. And my co-hosts Angie from the Country Chic Cottage and Laura from Handmade Home have been sharing in the fun! We’ve also asked our crafty friends to join in… check out all their great projects below!
