Valentine topiary

I haven't really made a lot of Valentine's day crafts, but I knew that I wanted to do something with conversation hearts! I just love them! So, my husband and I went to the Dollar Tree to find some. Everything in this project came from the Dollar Tree!





It was simple and easy! I used leftover flowers that I had from last Easter for my Easter topiaries. The pot was from the flowers I used in my twine-wrapped Christmas trees. All I had to buy was the ball and hearts...$2! Couldn't beat that! =]
