Valentine Topiary Wreath ~

Last year I made a little Valentine's Day wreath for this window in my entry hall, I really liked it but I used natural materials that were quite fragile and between that and Miss Twiggley batting it around...well, need I say more. She likes to sit in this window and observe the birds flitting by outside, playing with a dangling thing that easily moves is just part of the fun.

This year I decided to put one together that might be a little bit more durable. Once again I used a wire coat hanger for the base. I found the little red heart at Michaels; it was exactly right.

All it took was forming the hanger into a heart and twisting an ivy garland around it, then suspending the heart in the middle ~ Super-duper easy! 

And so Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you the Valentine's Day topiary wreath for 2014. 

This one is definitely Miss Twiggley proof. (At least I think so)

Along with this heart go my wishes to Kim at Musing from Kim for a fast and quick recovery. She and her lovely family are such amazing people.

Thank you for visiting, have a happy day!

  1. It is very pretty and even better if Miss Twiggly doesn't deconstruct it! Our cats are perched on the ledges watching the resident hummingbirds feed at the feeder during this cold snap. It is quite amusing to watch the hummingbirds taunt the cats!

  2. It looks so pretty in your window. You are so talented.

  3. That looks perfect in your window! Have a great day!!

  4. Beautiful and I bet Miss Twiggley just wants to get it closer to her so she can admire it better :^)

  5. Oh, Adrienne, it might have been super easy but how beautiful. It sparkles like a jewel in your window. Miss Twiggley better be a good girl this year!..Happy Weekend..Judy

  6. The wreath looks so lovely! I don't know whether it is so easy-peasy to bend a wire hanger into a heart shape - if I would do it I'm pretty sure my heart would be very crooked.

  7. I'm touched. You are as sweet as your beautiful heart-shaped wreath. Hugs to you and Miss Twiggley!

  8. visiting from French Country Cottage. Love your topiary wreath! So pretty in your window.
