Make a sweet necklace for Valentine's Day

Colorful hard candies, and one giant conversation heart, serve as the jewels in this Valentine's Day necklace.

To make one, cut a strip of plastic wrap 36 inches long and 4 inches wide. Starting in the middle of the strip and working toward the ends, lay unwrapped candies 1 inch apart along the strip's center. Make your row of candies about 20 inches long. Fold the plastic wrap around the candies and roll it up to make a long tube. Tie 3- to 4-inch lengths of ribbon between the candies and at the ends. To form the necklace, tie together the ends of the plastic wrap and trim the excess.
