DIY Faux Rosemary Valentine’s Heart [Int’l Bloggers Club]

Hi friends and Happy Monday! It’s the last Monday of the month, that means it’s time for our Int’l Bloggers Club! This months theme is Valentine’s Day. And so let me show you my DIY faux rosemary Valentine’s heart today! 

We actually started our fun club last year around the same time and our first post was a Valentine´s one as well… If you want to find out more about our club, it´s members and previous projects, click here

Well, a year has passed and we´re still here and want to share some Valentine´s DIY´s, crafts and such with you today!

Here in Spain, Valentine´s Day is not a special day, I mean, it is in the stores, but not so much in homes. Or maybe it is, what do I know about people’s homes, right? But you know what I mean…most people I know here, don’t really celebrate it.

We don´t either, but I like to have a few things up here and there and decorate a little bit for it. just a little. Cause it is fun! And I really liked the idea of a heart, it is a symbol of love, my love for my family, my sweet girls and my amazing husband! And this heart can stay up all year and forever!

DIY Faux Rosemary Valentine´s Heart 

First, I  grabbed a coffee, had a most of it, lol, then some wire and shaped it into a heart.

I cut thinner wire [mine is golden, but any goes] into short pieces and started twisting one around the end of the first piece of rosemary. The other end is just stuck into the wire end of the heart. The rosemary was actually an artificial potted little plant once that I cut up.

Then I added one by one, both ends wrapped up with little pieces of wire, until the heart was finished…

    I would make it with my real rosemary – it would not be as pretty as yours or last but the smell would be divine !! I love your design though Katrin.

    You know I love fresh herbs, or faux herbs too. They can be used in so many decor items. It makes the home look fresher too. Rosemary is a favorite, love the leaves, they resemble an evergreen and smell so good.

    This heart can be used all year round, which I love, I’m not as talented about changing out my decor as often as you, you inspire me.

    Congrats on one year for the Intn’ Bloggers Club, love seeing how you all do things in your homes!

      Thanks friend! I wish I had the garden full of lovely herbs, I just don’t have green thumb…. and we have two bunnies who love herbs as well!

    I love it! Pure and simple! Whenever I see people making wreaths, I think “there is no way I could do that”,…but your method with the wire looks so do-able! I even have some of that nice bendy craft wire! Thank you for the inspiration—your heart wreath is really beautiful!

      Thank you Gigi!! It is really super easy to make, I’m so happy you got inspired!!

    Love this! Going to make with fresh rosemary as I am blessed to have lots of it! Plus the springs are perfectly tender and pliable. Also have a few yellow tea roses bloomimg, might add those too, we shall see! Many thanks for a beautiful, fun , quick project!

      Oh how fun! I’d love to have rosemary outside in the garden! I bet it’ll smell so nice, I made a Christmas wreath with fresh rosemary my neighbour gave me two years ago…it was perfect to craft with! Have fun and thank you for the visit!

    I would have never guessed that was faux rosemary. Love the simplicity of your Valentine’s Wreath Katrin and would definitely hang one in my house.

      Thank you Marie! It does look pretty real, it was a little rosemary plant I got years ago from Loblaws… and it didn’t look great as a plant anymore, but got a new purpose now 😉

    Hello Katrin,
    guess I would put some colourful beads on, maybe even something sparkly. I like it this sober way too but I’m kind of desperate for colours right now (I mostly am this time of the year).
    Have a lovely day,

    • Katrin
      31/01/2017 at 22:03

      Thank you Marjan! I can imagine the wreath lovely with pops of colour too! This time of year sure needs it! Thank you for stopping by!

    Katrin, this heart wreath is so beautiful!! I love that it can stay up all year round. It looks wonderful with your decor. Are those bird plates new in the crate? They’re cute! Anyway, I hope you and your family have a Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂

    • Katrin
      31/01/2017 at 22:01

      Thank you Keri! I wish you the same! The bird plates were so easy, I should make a post maybe… those are my famous octopus plates, lol. I forgot about them!

    Katrin that is the perfect heart for you. It is so Katrin, in its simplicity and in its grace and elegance. And of course you are right, you don’t know what goes on in peoples homes, lol! I am so happy to have shared this past year with you and the other ladies. Looking forward to another year.

    • Katrin
      31/01/2017 at 21:59

      Yes, Mary it is! I really also enjoyed all of our posts this month! So much fun and I can’t believe we’re at it for a year already!

    I had to look at it twice because it seems real rosemary!! The best thing with the faux version is that it won’t dry and fall so less cleaning. It’s a beautiful way to show yours how much you love them! Happy Valentine’s Day my friend!

    • Katrin
      30/01/2017 at 22:24

      Thank you Pili! Yes it looks so real, hey? I love real rosemary but yes, when it dries it ends up all over the place… 😉

    What a sweet Valentine’s Day project! I am amazed how you use a few items and kreate such beauty. I’m going to try making one from my rosemary plant since I don’t have any faux available. If I fail, I’m going to shop for some of the faux because I love this heart. I always enjoy the Int’l Bloggers Club Challenges, Happy Anniversary to All!! Thank-you for this lovely post.

      30/01/2017 at 21:47

      Oh I can imagine it being so beautiful with real rosemary Ellen! And the smell, aahh, so good! I had these available because the bunnies killed my rosemary…well, they enjoyed it themselves, lol! But I’d love to have a bush and just go and grab some for when I want to craft something! Have a great day and Thank you so much for stopping by!

    So simple but so, so effective Katrin and it looks simply beautiful in the wire basket. I wish I had your sense of style, I can’t wait for you to be discovered by a decor talent scout so the whole world can admire the things you do.

    • Katrin
      30/01/2017 at 21:43

      hahaha, you’re so funny Michelle! That would be awesome though now that I think about it, lol! 😉
