Hearts in a Box

This project was pretty simple. You could totally get everything at the dollar store. Of course I didn't get the box there, but there are different things at Dollar Tree that you could use... You just have to look around.

What you need:
A box.Hearts on a stick, I used three bags, plus some that I had left over from last year.Floral arrangement styrofoam.

The How To:

Glue the floral styrofoam stuff in the box. I used two since my box was deep. Then randomly stick your heart on a stick into the styrofoam. Find some spanish moss (I think that is what it is called) and spread it over the foam and around the sticks.
To spell out the word "love" I took some small ribbon, twisted, turned and glued until I had it how I wanted.

End Result... hearts in a box.
