Say it with love… but this time around, love for nature. If you’ve been reading my blog for some time now, you should know about my appreciation for plants. And if they require little or no care at all, I’m in!
This Valentine’s day I’m sharing my love for plants and crafts with this easy and fast tutorial to make this heart come to live. All you’ll need is a grapevine heart (from Michaels Stores), some moss (I used a variety pack from the Moss Collection available at Jo-Ann) and if you like, some air plants (you can buy yours at your local nursery, mine are from Isaac Farms in Miami).
Carefully using a hot glue gun, start pasting pieces of the moss on the grapevine heart (I only did this on the front side of the heart). Try mixing different types of moss to give this heart its happy beat. I love alternating the creams with the greens. For this project I only did half of the heart but you can always make the entire piece.
To finish this, on some of the gaps remaining on the grapevine heart I inserted small air plants. I think it adds some vitality to the entire project. This heart can be place with the door with a beautiful ribbon or over a mantle.
Though there were no reds of cupid arrows in this project, there was a lot of love involved. After all, love is what makes this world turn around, so why not make it a better and happy place with plants. Happy Valentine’s day to all of you lovely followers!
