Faux Heart Topiary Place Card Holders - DIY
With Valentine's day around the corner we needed to come up with a unique way to make some place card holders. I don't know about you but January is always a rough month. Money is tight and it just seems like it's the longest month ever. I had to dig really deep into our craft cupboard to make these little heart topiaries. Can you guess what they're made from?
Those rustic topiary hearts were made out of a pool noodle. Yup, a pool noodle 😉 If I had the money, I could probably have bought me some of those polystyrene hearts at the craft store, but sadly after going over our budget last month that wasn't really an option.
We cut the noodle into 10 cm bits (that's about 4") and carved them into heart shapes using a craft knife.
We roughened the hearts up a bit with a cheese grater to mimic foliage.
The noodle hearts were sprayed a beautiful green and we found some twigs to make the trunks. The topiaries were planted in tin buckets filled with sand and we wrote our guests names on ice cream sticks.
I'm quite happy with how they turned out and I'm even happier that I could use what I had in the craft cupboard and didn't have to spend any money.
