Pretzel Heart Bunting

 I've taken my favorite heart shaped pretzel treats and used them to not only treat my guests, but also decorate my tables!

As Valentine's Day grows closer and closer, stores and supermarkets are filled with heart shaped everything. Cookies and brownies molded into hearts, cakes with heart shaped sprinkles, and my personal favorite - pretzel shaped hearts (usually chocolate covered).


2 8" inch cookie sticks
5 candy covered heart-shaped pretzels
1/8" ribbon
1/4" ribbon
Cupcakes or cake
Hot glue


Step 1: Cut a length of your 1/8" ribbon and tie two of your pretzels together

Step 2: Repeat step 1 until all the pretzels are connected.

Step 3: Take one of your cookie sticks and your 1/8" ribbon. Put a dab of glue on the end of your ribbon.

Step 4: Adhere the ribbon to your stick and twist the stick winding the ribbon around the stick. When you reach the end of the stick, trim your ribbon. Add a dab of glue to the end of the ribbon and adhere the end of the ribbon to the stick.

Step 5: Take your 1/4" ribbon and weave it through the center of one of the end pretzels. Add a dab of glue to the end of the ribbon and adhere the end of the ribbon to your stick.

Step 6: Leave about an inch of ribbon between the pretzel and the stick. Loop the other end of the ribbon over to the stick. Trim the ribbon to length. Add a dab of glue to the end of the ribbon and adhere it to the stick.

Step 7: Cut a length of your 1/4" ribbon and tie it into a bow. Add a dab of glue to the 1/4" ribbon adhered to the stick and attach the bow.

Step 8: Repeat steps 3-6 for the other stick.

Step 9: Secure the bunting in your cake or cupcakes.
