Candy Heart Earrings

Okay, are you sick of Valentines stuff yet?! :)
I am usually so behind on stuff like this, but knowing we aren't going to be back to normal life til the end of January has motivated me to get some project done I've had on the brain.
Do you guys read Delightfully Noted? If not...you need to! Jennifer is hilarious, has great ideas and is incredibly talented! She had a post HERE about making some simple earrings and I thought I was brilliant! It inspired me to make these SUPER easy Candy Heart Earrings!


Lets see...all you need for these are some Candy Hearts, Flat Earring Posts, some Mod Podge and some glue! Easy, right?!


I did a light coat of Mod Podge on the candy hearts...just so they would be shiny and to act as a shellac of some sort :) I'm sure theres a better way...but thats what I had on hand :) Once they were dry I glued the posts on the back and had myself a couple of pairs of earrings:)
My girls LOVE these! They want to wear them every day, but I am mean and am making them wait until at LEAST February :) These would be fun little gifts for friends or party favors.



Thanks for checking out Blue Skies Ahead today! I am going to be posting some really fun Hawaiian-themed crafts next week, so make sure you check back!

And to think, I was only going to use the candy hearts to do color sorting and graphing...but then, I only have boys! Such a cute idea!

Stopping by from Sharing Saturday!

Oh, these bring back memories. I used to own a candy store and my sister and I made candy heart earrings for our first Valentine's Day in the store. We wore them every year and loved them. They are so fun.
