Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all pink and red. On this special celebration try making something different and give love to your plants.
Today’s craft is an accessory that can be given as a gift or you can make one (or several) to decorate your walls.
To start, all you’ll need is a piece of galvanized steel chicken wire (the size will depend on how big you want your heart to be) mine was an 8″ x 8″; some air plants (aka tillandsias, the ones I used here were form my local plant nursery); and a pair of metal snip pliers (the ones I used are Wiss from Home Depot) to help you with the cutting.
Take care of the tillandsias by spraying them with water every two weeks and keeping them in bright areas. These are some pointers but feel free to ask your local nursery for more great tips.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this easy tutorial and Happy Valentine’s Day!
