Conversation Heart Frame Craft

How to Decorate a Frame With Candy


Follow these instructions and make a fun, heart-shaped frame decorated with candy canversation hearts.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Cut a heart shape out of the cardboard. The size you will make the heart will depend of the size of the photo you are using. It should be about 2-inches larger on all sides than the picture you are using. Cut a hole in the center of the heart shape to display the photo in. Paint your heart shape red (or whatever color you desire). Set it aside to dry.

Once the paint is dry, glue the candy conversation hearts all over the heart frame. Set it aside to dry again.

Once the glue is dry, tape the picture in the opening you cut in the center of the heart frame. Cut a small triangle out of the cardboard and attach behind the picture to make a stand, or you can even add a strip of magnet to the back!
