Candy Heart Wreath

Use the ultimate Valentine's Day staple, candy hearts, to create your very own festive wreath to really sweeten up your decor with this DIY idea.

It's not Valentine's Day without cute, festive candy hearts. Although these tasty little treats are great to nibble on, try incorporating them into your holiday decor for extra flair! These small wreathes are great to give as gifts to friends, family and teachers. They will surely help you spread the love on this very special holiday!

You may choose any size wreath you like for these sweet decorations, but as the wreath takes a lot of hearts to cover completely, I opted for the smallest.

  • 6-inch Styrofoam wreath
  • Hot glue gun
  • Conversation hearts
  • Ribbon

Note: Find the wreath, glue gun and ribbon in the craft store. You’ll need a good amount of conversation candy to cover the wreath. I used about half a one-pound bag for one 6-inch wreath.


Step 1: Glue your candy. Work with one piece of candy at a time. Add a dab of hot glue on the wreath and adhere a piece of candy.

Cover the entire wreath, including the outer and inner sides. Glue more candies on top of the other candy to cover the gaps. Some candies will stand on edge, some will lie flat, just keep gluing and adding pieces. Let dry completely.

Step 2: Add the ribbon. Tie a piece of ribbon around the wreath and hang.
