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). I've taken my favorite heart shaped pretzel treats and used them to not only treat my guests, but also decorate my tables!
2 8" inch cookie sticks
5 candy covered heart-shaped pretzels
Cupcakes or cake
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.
