Typically Valentines Day is not some blown out hyped-up holiday in our house. We try to celebrate and teach our children that love, affection and happy hearts should happen everyday.
But in the spirit of creating something special that I could admire and look at all month, I created this heart boxwood wreath.
You may remember, I made this wreath last month ( which still hangs in my bedroom) and every since then, couldn't help venturing out to the backyard and picking up a handful of boxwood clippings for another one.

At the risk of sounding redundant, you can follow my full tutorial for making a boxwood wreath here.
I found that keeping the boxwood wreaths in a colder environment and misting it with water every so often, helps it from not drying out so quickly. If anyone knows the secret to preserving boxwood please let me know.
