 Tools and Materials

  • Conversation hearts (this took two bags)
  • Ribbon
  • Wood dowel
  • Tin (or pot or small bowl)
  • Styrofoam ball and base
  • Glue gun

How To

  1. Cut a piece of Styrofoam to fit in the bottom of your vase. Make sure it’s nice and snug down there so it can safely support the topiary.
  2. Next, wrap your wood dowel in the ribbon and glue it at each end.
  3. Glue the conversation hearts to the Styrofoam and piece them together like a puzzle. If a little white shows don’t worry about it.
  4. Assemble the topiary! You’ll want to make sure you have extra candy to cover the vase.
  5. Use as a great Valentine’s decoration!
