Candy Heart Plant Pot for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and ChocolateBefore I teach you how to make these candy heart planters I have a confession to make. I’m kind of freaked out by candy hearts. When I was in 4th grade around Valentine’s Day I was eating a bunch of these candy hearts, as kids do, and shortly after I was sent home sick with the flu. In my kid head I thought the candy hearts were what made me sick. Ever since then I’ve had a huge food aversion to candy hearts. I haven’t eaten them since 4th grade (and probably never will). I was traumatized. Candy Heart Plant Pot for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and ChocolateThough I refuse to eat candy hearts that doesn’t mean I won’t craft with them! I love the bright colors and the cute messages they have… just not so much the taste. They are certainly abundant in January and February so it’s kind of hard to avoid them, so my as well embrace them as I did here. Candy Heart Succulent Pot | Popcorn and Chocolate

  2. Cut out individual candy hearts – as many as you want to cover your pot. Candy heart planters | Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Using mod podge, glue on the cut out candy hearts on various places on your pot. If you like a lot of candy hearts then glue on a lot but if you like a more minimal look, like mine, just do a couple on each side. Candy heart planters | Popcorn and ChocolateOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACandy heart planters | Popcorn and Chocolate

IMG_9484We are all too aware that Valentine’s day is fast approaching. I don’t need the whole world to remind me that I’m still single… I’ve never really loved Valentine’s day, but I’ve never really hated it either. It is a very neutral holiday for me.Free Printable Valentines Lyrical Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateI mean there’s candy and flowers galore, but I still have leftover Halloween candy I’m working on and I’ve already got my permanent Rose so I don’t feel the pull to buy anything (my wallet thanks me). In terms of decorating, I’m not the biggest fan of red but might throw up a heart here or there in our apartment. Maybe I’m just in that awkward stage where it was fun as a kid and will be again once I’m older (and married?)? So in the meantime I’ll celebrate this neutral holiday with a medium amount of enthusiasm and my leftover Halloween candy, thank you very much.Free Printable Valentines Lyrical Hearts | Popcorn & ChocolateThat doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy making Valentine crafts. I mean it is a holiday and I do have a craft blog.. it’s only natural to exploit holidays.
