Recycle Candy Canes for Valentine's Day

Have candy canes left over from Christmas? Recycle them for Valentine's Day with this great craft that's easy and inexpensive to do with the kids. Criss-cross the candy canes so they form a heart shape.


Hot glue the candy canes together where they intersect. Hot glue curling ribbon and a wrapped piece of hard candy to the top center point of the heart. Attach a personal message to one of the ribbons.
