moss hearts

This Valentines Day why not go green! Here in Oregon we have tons of moss and I thought it would make the perfect material for some simple and natural valentines!

I started by twisting floral wire into a heart shape.

Next, I used moss and a little greenery collected from our back yard and glued it to the wire.

The result are pretty little green hearts that would could be slipped into a envelope, hung on the wall, turned into a garland or even used as a gift topper!

I love this so much!! How pretty and a nice way to include nature and valentines without making it all pinks/reds.

That reminds me that I never shared my wreath wall with you from Christmas. Will email you a picture. Liked it so much that I know have Valentine wreaths too. Thanks for always inspiring and sharing with us.

We have lots of moss here in BC too, specifically in my front yard.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Love the idea. So simple and pretty. I do love hunting for moss, so I might save this project for the warmer months when all our snow has melted.

This is such a great idea. I have made hearts for my front door but, have not used Spanish moss.
I like the idea of using the small heart on Valentine gifts. An even smaller heart would look so cute on an Valentine Day card.

I wonder how long the moss lasts? Anyone have experience with how fast it would die?
