Pretty and fun as they are, Valentine candy conversation hearts aren’t exactly healthy. To keep the fun of the conversation heart tradition without the sugar, why not trade in the candy version for these felt ones? Even better, they’re super easy and you can personalize them with whatever saying you want.

Instructions to Make Felted Conversation Hearts:

Sketch a 2-2 1/2 inch heart on a large piece of felt. Decide what you would like your heart to say, and lightly trace the words in the center of your heart. DO NOT CUT OUT YOUR HEART (that sounds a bit funny!).

Put your felt into an embroidery hoop and embroider your words using back stitch.

Cut out your heart, as well as an additional identical heart.

Using a blanket stitch, sew your hearts together. When you have just a small opening left, stuff your heart and then finish sewing it closed.

Want to turn your felted conversation hearts into wearable art? Using either hot glue or a needle and thread, sew a pin backing onto your heart, making for a cute Valentine’s Day pin!
