Anyone can do this craft, however, it is suitable for those with a chronic illness. With a chronic illness, after moving my hands for a long period of time, they tend to go numb and tingly. They also become very sore, after a while. This candle took me about 30 mins to complete. I did take several breaks, but my hands didn’t go numb or become tender afterwards! It’s a super cute way to celebrate or even give as a gift for Valentine’s Day! Let’s get started!
- 1 bag of conversation hearts
- 1 unscented pillar candle
- Hot glue gun & sticks
- Take 1 conversation heart, put a dot size amount of hot glue on the heart. * DO NOT PUT THE HOT GLUE DIRECTLY ON THE CANDLE, PUT IT ON THE HEART OR IT WILL CAUSE DENTS AND HOLES IN THE CANDLE.*
- Place the heart onto the bottom of the candle. Make sure the tip of the heart lines up with the bottom of the candle.
- Press the heart on for 10 seconds. Continue placing hearts on the candle side by side.
- Once you go all the way around the candle, start a new row on top. Make sure the new row is staggered.
That’s it! Pretty easy, and they turn out super cute! It’s not over exhausting, and doesn’t cause your hands to cramp up! I loved it so much, I actually got another candle and large conversation hearts to make a second one. It’s a perfect way to show your sweetheart your appreciation for them, or a fun project to place on your mantel! 💘❤
