Valentine's Day Woodland Candy Hugger Crafts

These adorable little forest creatures first caught on after I designed my cute little fox and created it for a freebie here on the blog.

After seeing other inspiring crafters make what is called a “candy hugger” as a Valentine gift, I decided to alter my original design to fit this trendy idea!


– Glue gun – Clear permanent photo tape – Candy – 65 pound cardstock – Cutting machine or printer and scissors

Cut all your printable animal valentines out either with a cutting machine in layers or use the PNG images and scale to size then print on your printer.


If using a cutting machine, cut all layers out in the suggested colors you see with the on screen design.

Layer the designs in sequential order. Tape down a piece of candy or lollipop over the animal hugger’s center belly.

Fold the arms over the candy and secure with glue. Enjoy your adorable printable animal valentines!
