Love Grows Terrarium

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:

* Moss
* 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!
