Conversation Heart Party - DIY Treat Stands!

While everyone else it gearing up for the big game, I've got more important things for you to do.  Today you'll get to see the close up of the Mini Heart Cupcake Stands I made to display a sweet little Valentine Treat~
Best of all they were so very easy to make.  Maybe they were easy because I took a Shop class in high school.  I remember, I made a candle stick and a very ugly lopsided bookshelf.  I went to a very small country school (think Little House on the Prairie) and they didn't offer Home Economics.  I guess Shop class was the next best thing..I got to create right??
 I found all the supplies at Hobby Lobby~
Instructions:

Cut open the bags
Sand the rough edges
Paint wooden candlesticks and wooden hearts.
Let Dry
Hot glue together
Top with treats 

And here are the treats~
And these were the easiest treats ever!  Store bought Chocolate Covered Cherries and decorated each one with frosting and sprinkles!
And I know you LOVE easy!
Candy Is Dandy, But Cherries are the Bomb!

Not wanting the paint to go to waste, I came up with another idea.  Used it to make the backdrop for the "Sweets" buffet~
Bought and painted wooden letters (again, I credit my Shop class).  Each letter was hung with red ribbon across the top of an artist canvas!  

Here's a look at one of the "Sweet" treats in the buffet. 
Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn Bars~
Topped with conversation heart colored white chocolate lips, again made from a chocolate candy mold. All packaged up~
Because I LOVE the colors of Conversation Hearts, I made Hot Lips Tags and sealed them with a Candy Colored Kiss~
Lips as Sweet as Candy!

Sugar
Ah, Honey Honey
I Am Your Candy, Girl!
