Conversation hearts are one of those love-’em-or-hate-’em kind of candies.  They’re not my favorites (they remind me of heart-shaped Tums), but they are one of those classic, iconic candies nonetheless.  If you’d rather non eat them, how about crafting with them instead?  Katie from Sew Woodsy turned a box of them into a set of magnets, sealing them up with a coat of sparkle Mod Podge.  (Gloss or matte Mod Podge would also work if you don’t have any of the glittery kind or if glitter just isn’t your bag.)  [how to make conversation heart magnets]

Project estimate:

  • Conversation hearts, about $0.50
  • Mod podge, on hand
  • Sheet magnet, on hand or $1 and up
  • Hot glue, on hand

Total:  about $0.50 and up
