DIY Eye Candy Valentines

eHow Crafts Blog

How about giving the sweethearts in your life a little “eye candy” this Valentine’s Day? Conversation hearts do the job of turning heart sunglasses into a quirky valentine that nobody would expect!


  • Heart sunglasses
  • Conversation hearts
  • Hot glue gun

Start by picking out the conversation hearts with the phrases you want, then decide on what pattern you want on your sunglasses. You can cover the whole rim in candies, or you can just add a few! Once you’re ready with your idea, start hot gluing your conversation hearts on, one at a time.

If covering the whole rim in candy, I recommend starting in the middle and working your way out and around each lens.

Pair them with a cute note, something like “A little eye candy for my eye candy!”

You’re sure to have the best Valentines of the bunch. And who can resist heart sunglasses, especially when they’re covered in candies!
