It's been awhile since I have done any crafting around the house. I saw this on Pinterest (of course) and I knew my mantle needed them.
Off I went to the Dollar Store to buy the conversation hearts and Styrofoam cones. Well my Dollar Tree didn't have the cones but AC Moore had them super cheap. Got home, pulled out the glue gun and off I went. This won't take long, I thought, ummmm yeah. Both of them probably took over two hours to glue all the hearts on and I burnt my fingers twice. I was impressed with only twice, too be honest.
The one on the left I started at the top and went down and the one on the right, I started at the bottom and went up. They both have an ugly side but in the end they came out cute and they add that pop of color to the mantle. I probably would start at the bottom again because I had to cut the Styrofoam on the other one due to spacing. I think I used about three bags of the hearts, so the whole project, all in $6. Can't beat that.
