Sweet Bling and Other Things

Valentine's Day is the sweetest day of the year, and since the Red Hat Society is all about sharing the heart, your Hatquarters DIY Factory has created some cute projects featuring the Valentine's Day classic candies: Sweethearts. These quick and easy projects take just a few minutes to make, and they would make for wonderful gifts for your loved ones and Chapterettes.

We know that Hatters love their bling, so we thought it only fitting to create something that Hatters could give to their friends and Chapterettes to wear. We present you the Heart Candy Ring.

What you will need:
Candy Hearts
Adjustable Rings
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Simply set up your hot glue gun and allow a few minutes for it to warm the glue. Place a dot of glue at the top of the adjustable ring, and place the heart over the glue. Hold for a few seconds as it adheres to the ring. Allow it to cool completely before handling it. These are easy and inexpensive Valentine's Day gifts that will surely bring a smile to anyone's face.


Next we have our take on the Candy-gram. This is a cute way to add a sweet touch to your homemade cards.

What you will need:
Red construction paper
Foam Heart Stickers
Candy Hearts

Take your red paper and fold in half to create a card shape. Adhere your heart stickers, layering them from biggest to smallest, ultimately topping with the candy heart. Write a special message inside and deliver this sweet surprise to your loved ones.


We hope you ladies have enjoyed this Valentine's Day blog! Please be sure to comment below and share your own heart candy ideas and pictures  with us at Stories@Redhatsociety.com, or post them on the Red Hat Society Facebook Page.
