I am loving all of the Valentine’s Day inspiration from all of the awesome bloggers out there! I love this holiday because it can mean something different to everyone. When you are little it’s all about the candy and the school parties, in middle school it’s all about the boy you have a crush on, if you are in high school and you have a bf/gf it becomes the most important day of the year, then once you hit your 20′s and you are single you think it’s the worst day of the year, and finally when you settle down and start a family it becomes a fun-loving holiday all over again :)
I’m in the fun-loving holiday stage and I’ve had a blast making new Valentine’s Day decor for our home. I created this sweet (pun intended) Valentine’s Day Centerpiece made with Styrofoam spheres and Valentine’s Day candy! I placed the edible decor in a milk glass pedestal bowl I picked up at the Goodwill for around $2.00 and tied a big red bow around it.
To add some texture and dimension, I wrapped Twizzlers around some of the Styrofoam spheres.
So what about you? Do you read your conversation hearts before you eat them?
To make this project, here is what you need:
- Styrofoam spheres (I bought 4 for a $1 at the dollar store)
- Valentine’s Day candy (I used conversation hearts, cupid heart candies, and Twizzlers)
- Hot glue or preferred adhesive
- Decorative bowl
1. I started by separating all of my candy out, I eventually sorted them all by color. A little OCD, may be?
2. I started gluing the hearts onto the sphere by stacking them on top of each other.
3. I repeated the pattern until the sphere was covered. Ta da!
4. You could use several different kinds of candy to make these! The options are endless. Once you have enough completed, place them in a decorative bowl or cylinder vases would also be an alternative. They would make great centerpieces or accents on a shelf.
