Candy Cane Hearts

Happy Valentine's! This is a fun way to recycle your candy canes. I had seen the idea last year and made it a point to get some candy canes on clearance after the holidays. Bonus these were Starburst strawberry flavor, perfect for Valentines! I would love to get the tiny candy canes next year... perfect for little kiddos to enjoy. These would be darling hanging on a garland. Also it's fun to spell words out of the candy canes. For Christmas I think it would look great to spell out JOY for a cake topper. Maybe that's what we'll do when we make Jesus's Birthday cake next year. Thats a new tradition I have started to help the kids understand why we celebrate the holiday. Here is a link for the how to on making candy cane shapes. Enjoy!
