First, bend the chenille stick into a circle and twist the ends together tightly.
To form the top of the heart, bend the chenille where the ends are twisted together.
Finally, pinch the bottom of the chenille stick to form the bottom point. Gently shape as desired.
Thin some craft glue with a little water. Add a couple of teaspoons of instant coffee granules and stir until dissolved. With your fingers, apply the glue mixture to the heart; coating evenly. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and/or cloves. Let dry completely. I unfolded a paper clip and hung it on a clothes hanger which I had hanging from a kitchen cupboard knob. Tie on a piece of jute twine or string for a hanger and then embellish by gluing on sweet annie and rosehips or however desired.
We have celebrated two of my kids' birthdays this past month and will have one more to celebrate on Gound Hog's Day this Thursday. They usually pick their favorite dessert for me to make on their special day. This year there was a new request for Snicker Bar pie. I found this recipe on Food.com and it is heavenly!! The recipe calls for it to be made the night before and you definitely need to follow that rule. I made mine the morning of my daughter's birthday and, even though it was good, you definitely noticed a difference in the texture when we had a piece the next night. It was a lot creamier and the candy bar pieces kind of softened and almost melted into the pie.
This isn't a very good picture of the pie! I didn't think to take a picture until we were down to the last piece! lol
