Conversation Hearts are super cute and perfect for crafting. I knew I could turn them into some accessories. ..cute ones at that!
The whole mix-and-match thing is all the rage right now with the pre-tween crowd - - how you don't wear socks that match, etc. So I thought mix and match earrings was perfect - and I was right - my girls LOVE them.
These are incredibly easy to make - - I thought I would need to get bails and jump rings and earring hooks, and that sounded a little complicated, but then I found these awesome earring hooks MADE for gluing things on - how easy is that?! You'll need them (I bought mine from Candytiles HERE and you can get a 10% discount with the code "sugarbeez10") and superglue and candy hearts pre-coated in mod podge:
And here's the mod podge part - I brushed on one side then let it dry then did the other side:
Then put super glue on the disk part, like so:
And place it on the back of the heart, like so (the one with the bail is for a necklace)
Then let them dry - - that's it! Mix and Match time and time again - - all you math geeks out there can figure out how many different pair combinations you can make with the set below:
I really like how they're a dangle earring but they're not SO big and dangly. They are a good size for my 2nd grader. Some in-action shots...
See, purple and pink - - now what's more fun than mixed up earrings?!
Grab a pack of Conversation Hearts and make a set of your own -- you'll love it!
