Conversation hearts: Do you love them or hate them? They’re such a divisive part of Valentine’s Day candy. 

Me? I’m on the fence. They’re chalky and super sweet, but also kind of fun. But I’d rather have chocolates! 

I love sifting through the silly messages, always written in bright red ink on the pastel candies.

However, this year Necco isn’t making conversation hearts! It has to do with them selling and not being able to produce enough in time for Valentine’s Day this year. Bummer right? 

It’s been a while since I shared a DIY here, so I thought I’d take a minute to whip up something fun for all your Valentine’s Day drinks, inspired by this iconic candy.

How to make Conversation Heart Cocktail Stirrers

You’ll cut hearts out of the paper — about 3-4 inches wide. I recommend cutting one heart by folding a piece of paper in half, then cutting half of the heart around the fold to make a template. 

Then, trace the rest of the hearts so the others don’t have folds, and cut around the traces. 

Write your messages on the hearts, then affix them to the straws. You can either adhere the center of the heart toward to the top of the straw, or if you want to be able to drink out of them, place them about 1.5 inches from the top. 

To affix them, use clear tape on the back of the straw. You can also use a couple dots of glue if you’d rather! I’m rather fond of these glue dots
