Is there a treat more often associated with Valentine's Day than Necco's Sweetheart Conversation Hearts? Whether you like the taste or not, you can't deny that they're a V-Day icon and, using some items you can find around your house, I'll show you how I made Conversation Heart Magnets.
Once my hearts were cut out (but before I glued them onto the magnets, in case I made a mistake or didn't like how the writing looked), I wrote some "conversation" on these hearts. I know there are updated versions now that say things like "TEXT ME", but the only things Jesse and I text about is picking up dinner on the way home or Fred's recent visit to the vet. Thanks, but I think I'll stick with the classics.
paint chip samples (cut into hearts with scissors or heart shaped punch)
thin magnets (also cut into hearts)
glue & brush
These were all things I owned already. As with the Valentine's Day banner, I used paint color samples from the Home Depot. For the magnets, I used those business-card style magnets that small companies send to you or have at their check-out counters. We have a TON from when we moved and every local business sent us information about their services.
Use a thin layer of glue to stick the paint chips to the magnets, let dry, and hang up...
Easy to make and free... what's not to love?
