{candy heart bracelets}

This is the darling Valentine's version of my candy pumpkin bracelet...I couldn't resist!

I followed the same directions (click HERE for tutorial), but I did learn a few things.

1. This candy is softer than candy pumpkins, so the needle will go through quite easily. Make sure you use a needle with a large eye, so you can get the floss through.

2. Softer candy means there will be some "goo" left on the floss as the heart slides on. It didn't affect the way the bracelet looked at all, and after all the hearts were on, I just used a damp rag to wipe it off before tying it closed.

3. I used about 9 hearts for my girls' bracelets---they are 4 years old.


Wouldn't this be SO cute with cinnamon bears? It's travesty that they don't sell them in this town (at least that I have been able to find). Cinnamon hearts would also be darling. You could even use wrapped chocolates!!!

My girls loved helping with these! They would be perfect for parties, craft days for kids, and just for fun at home. Enjoy!

Cute idea Kierste! I'd probably eat it as soon as I put it on my wrist! I don't think it would last long enough for a photo either... > o <

My granddaughters LOVED the pumpkin bracelets I made following your instructions so I know they'll be excited about these. Of course, they didn't last long for the younger two; the "gum" (code for anything sweet) was just too tempting. Thanks for all the cute ideas!

Awesome Kierste!! You don't have Cinnamon bears either?! I can't find them in Tulsa either. Sad, they are my favorite. As always, Love your stuff!! :)
