A small, sweet forest of Conversation Heart Topiary Trees

Let’s converse about Conversation Hearts – does anyone really like them? Personally, I think they make better Valentine’s Day crafts than candy. If you’re still looking to decorate for Valentine’s Day, try making one of these Conversation Heart Topiary Trees. I think the kids would love to join in the fun and make a candy tree or two, too. The photos link to the tutorials, so click on through.

I love the unusual colors on the Sweet Candy Heart Topiary designed by Kathleen George, and I like how she mixed in marshmallow hearts, too.

Amanda, who blogs at Amada Jane Brown, also used Conversation Hearts in bolder colors when she made her Conversation Heart Topiary Trees.

If you’re more of a traditionalist, then you’ll want to check out these Candy Cones made with the old fashion pastel candies. Lori from Our Forever Home crafted these sweeties.

I like how Tracy sorted her colors and designed a pink & white striped Conversation Heart Topiary Tree. You’ll find Tracy over at Craft Junkie Too.

Just in case you’re a little overwhelmed by the large cones, check out these sweet mini topiaries Kristie from Simply Crafty made. This is a great size for kids, too. And bonus – Kristie found her supplies at a dollar store.

How do you feel about Conversation Hearts? Would you rather eat or craft with them? If you eat them, do you prefer one color over another? Is it strange that I will eat the white ones, and sometimes a green or orange heart, but I won’t go near a yellow, pink or purple heart?

Happy crafting!

    What a yummy craft. I like the white ones myself. I know they don’t last long with my kids even when I set them aside.

    I love to eat them and they look so cute in topiary form too. I love the green and purple ones, the white ones taste like Pepto Bismol to me :)
