Valentines Wall Display

This is actually my Wall Plant Box, which is in my bedroom.  It is on a small strip of wall next to one of the windows, but it is also the first wall one looks at when walking down the passage or entering my bedroom.

You can read about that project, as well as see the plans/sizes {step-by-step} on how to build this easy shabby-beachy box HERE, and yes, the plants {succulents, which I thought would take a lot to kill} are all dead... amazing, I only need to look at a plant - even plastic ones - and they quit on me!  It might have to do with the fact that one really need to give the poor guys a bit of water now and then, succulents or not ...

We had to stop, midway, with the make-over of our bedroom {beach themed} last year, September, due to more security which we had to add to the house first.

1.) I started with the felt hearts in red and white, cut into 2 different sizes {4 of each}
2.) The smaller heart was glued to it's opposite color larger heart {more or less in the center}
3.) I added tiny silk roses using Berry pins

Punched holes into the larger hearts and threaded through a thin silver chain which I used to hang as a small garland on the bottom piece of the plant box.

Some close-ups of what I added 

- The small heart/chain garland
- Top left: another felt heart with a LOVE charm, kept in place with 2 Berry Pins
- Top right: The 2 resin hearts were already on the box and I added a medium silk rose to the tops
- Bottom left: a new plant {Maiden Hair, I think it's called}in a pot which I bought a few of for next to nothing last year
- Bottom right: A Beachy style bench frame with a photo of Roy, myself and the kids - this is usually displayed on our entertainment cabinet in the bedroom

Let me know what you think !  {I am still busy with a small table Valentines vignette, but suddenly crafter's block struck me since the beginning of 2013 - amazed myself by doing this one shared today!}
