Actually pick up a ton of them for 90% off at Target or other places so you can make these Valentine's suckers. I made these last year and they were so easy. Thanks to "Skip To My Lou" for reminding me of this awesome craft before the canes were all gone! Connect here for full tutorial. http://www.skiptomylou.org/2009/01/21/candy-cane-hearts/
I haven't tried these, but it sure looks cool. Let's try it out together.

There are so many cool ideas how there. Who has the time? Maybe I'll try to carve a bit out this year.
