I have never really decorated for Valentine’s Day before… maybe a candle here or there. Now that Lucy is old enough to know what the holidays are I just love getting into the spirit of it all!
I started with the table centerpiece which happens to be one apothecary jar. I know that sounds pretty meager, but I can’t have anything too big since I have students sitting there almost every night and they need to be able to see each other!
I don’t know how this idea came to be, but as soon as I thought of it I couldn’t wait to get it done. All you need is:
* Red felt
* Floral wire
* Wire cutters/floral scissors
* Fabric glue
You can get the moss at Hobby Lobby in the floral section. I got a couple of different kinds to add depth and texture. First, you want to cut your hearts out. I did this old school-style. I folded the felt in half and cut half of a heart on the crease. Voila!
I doubled up the hearts so the “stem” could be glued into the middle.
Take the floral wire, fold in half and twist. I did this in varying lengths. Glue the two hearts together with the stem in the middle to make your “flowers”.
I stuck them in the moss that I had already put in the apothecary jar. I LOVE how it turned out. I have a little heart garden growing in my dining room. Love grows, indeed!
More fun Valentine’s Day crafts to come!
