... there had to be "one of these" for Valentine's Day. After pumpkins, gingerbread men, flowers and snowmen, everyone expects to see something for every holiday or season outside my door :) So, it had to happen.
It's just the same as the others - a bucket ( this time galvanized) with Plaster of Paris or quick setting cement to hold the 1 x 2 in place. I found the heart platter at Target for $2.99. Last year the Dollar Tree had big red plastic heart plates, but not this year, so I had to go for the $2.99 plate. I added green and white polka dot ribbon down the whole "stem." I contemplated leaves made from some cool found object but the truth is that I threw this together in about 30 minutes and that was all the time I had. Maybe leaves will happen next year!! And it's still cute and cost just a few dollars to put together!!
