What Do I Need to How to Make a Beautiful Topiary Heart?

This is such a fun and easy craft project.

For a faux topiary: you will need a faux plant, wire heart frame or styrofoam heart, skewers or dowel rod, twine, copper wire, floral wire or hot glue, glue gun, scissors, cutting board, sharp knife, moss and a planter or flower pot.  You will be able to find these craft supplies at Hobby Lobby or your local craft store.

For a live topiary: you will need a planter, potting soil, a live plant, wire heart frame, skewers, twine, scissors, moss, watering can.

What are the best plants for a Heart Shaped Topiary?

English ivy, creeping fig, jasmine, creeping jenny and grape ivy are all great plants that can be trained to grow on frames for indoors or outdoors

If using real plants, continue to train them around the wire frame as they grow.

When the frame is full, you will need to trim the extra growth to keep the shape of your frame.

These plants can also be purchased as faux plants.

I like to only use faux plants inside my house, so that I don’t have to care for them.

I know, some of you are cringing.

Step 5: Now, you just need to gently twist the greenery, whether real or faux, around the heart form. It’s just that easy.

If you are making the heart topiary with a real plant, be sure to water it well. You can trim any long pieces of the plant that is too long to wrap around the heart form.

Water regularly.
