I wanted to tell you about my twig valentines. They are a great thing to make with winter prunings. Find small bendy tips of branches that form a Y. Bring the top ends of the Y down to the single leg of the Y until you get a pleasing heart shape. Secure in place with floral wire. Decorate with ribbon, moss, dried flowers or whatever lovely natural treasure you like.:

We made some yesterday and they look great! We found some bendy red twigs which were especially nice. Thanks for sharing
