Fur Heart Valentine Topiaries Mantle Decor

Are you in the mood for love yet? Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Time to get your plan together for the big day! My Pink Fur Valentine Heart Shaped Topiary mantle decor is the perfect way to get in the mood! 

I teamed up with my friends from Oriental Trading Company again to spruce up the mantle for Valentine’s Day. The hearth is the heart of the home, so it is only fitting we dress it up on the one holiday that focuses on love!

I made a couple of heart topiaries out of large Foam Glitter Hearts from Oriental Trading’s Valentine Shop.  Mount a glittery heart in a tall galvanized bucket and fill the top of the base with fun pink faux fur for a cool trendy project!

How to make a Heart Shaped Topiary

Supplies:

heart, bucket, foam and wood dowel

Instructions:

Decide the height you would like the topiary to be.

Trim the dowel down to around 27 inches or where needed. 

Trim the hangers off of the foam heart.

Push the dowel through the center of the bottom of the heart about halfway through. Remove the heart from the dowel.

galvanized bucket and rocks

Place the 3-inch foam disc in the bottom of the galvanized pot. Make a hole in the center of the foam with the dowel.

Remove dowel and add decorative rocks for weight. This will keep the topiary from toppling over.

how to stabilize the topiary with rocks

Place the 4-inch disc inside the pot and push it down into the pot. Push dowel through the center of the 4-inch foam and then down into the hole in 3-inch foam disc.

Replace the heart back down on the dowel.

how to cut pink fur

Cut a 4 inch square of fur fabric with a razor blade.

Tip: Cut fur fabric with a razor blade on the base side of the fabric. This allows you to cut the base only, not through the fur on the “right” or fur side. 

Cut a diagonal line from one corner to the center of the square. Wrap it around the dowel and tuck in edges. Fluff the fur and that’s it!

      Hi Karen,
      Aren’t they great? They were from Oriental Trading Co. Sadly they no longer carry them. You could get large mylar balloon letters instead.
