Flashback Friday…Ivy Valentine Heart


Here is a very simple project I first made and shared back in February 2012!

Follow these simple directions to make your own…
 
Supplies:
a glass vase – or re-purposed sparkling water bottle like I used
some floral wire – preferable in a natural color to blend with the ivy stems
2 sprigs of ivy from your yard or indoor topiary
5 minutes – seriously, who doesn’t have 5 minutes to spare?!
 
Directions:
Wind your ivy around the floral wire – be sure to leave both cut ends at the end of the wire so they will go into the water. Also, strip ivy leaves from stem that will be submerged in the water.

Next, bend your wire into a heart shape…and put into your vase. The Ivy Heart will last for at least a week…especially if you refresh the water a few times.

Simple and natural…my favorite way to decorate!
 
 
Happy Friday!
