Valentine's Day is just around the corner! So today, we've partnered with Wonderful Halos to bring you an extra sweet treat that's bursting with Pure Goodness.

Here's how…
1. Cut a strip of crepe paper and fold in half.
2. Cut thin fringe strips all the way down the length of the crepe paper.

3. Cut off a 2" piece of the fringe and roll the fringe around the end of the toothpick. Secure with tape.
4. Repeat with a second color of crepe paper, layering over the first color and secure with tape.

5. On another toothpick, use two heart stickers back to back to create the point of the arrow.
6. Stick a fringe toothpick in one side of the Halo, and the heart arrow on the opposite side.

And that's it! They're so easy to make and are a fun way for your kids to show their friends a little love. Plus, they're prefect for classroom snack duty because one 5-pound box of Halos can provide enough treats for an entire classroom! Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. What a darling idea!
    I’m admittedly too lazy to DIY most of the time, but even I would do this.
    Nice to see a healthy allergen-free alternative for Valentine’s Day too, especially since so many kids (and adults) have food allergies these days. My niece would love this!
