This is a simple project to do with your grandkids, or by yourself, or in my case with my hubby.

Not much is needed, and would even make a cute gift.

Supplies:

  1. Ivy
  2. A pot with potting soil.
  3. Wire that’s easy enough to bend. I’m showing a wire hanger, but it was too hard for me to form into a heart with my little ole hands, so hubby found some wire in his work shop that was very pliable and then made the heart for me.  My heart came out very lopsided.   Just make sure to leave a good 3 to 4 inches at the bottom of the heart to insert into the soil.

4.  Place the ivy plants in the potting plant, then the heart.

5.  Carefully wind the ivy around the heart, you might have to fasten the ivy onto the wire so that it stays. I used string. Then watch the ivy grow and completely cover the wire.

The real fun begins now, because you can decorate the pot anyway you like.  Using stones, red bark or you can even make a little fairy garden.♥♥♥♥
