Create and Craft, Valentine's Day

Elegant Valentine’s Day Mossy Hearts and Crafts


By the time February arrives I am in the mood for green! Even though it’s still winter, some daffodils have already starting poking up through the frozen ground, and moss is greening up on stones and pots around the garden. These hints of green always inspire me to bring the outdoors in by decorating with moss in woodsy winter vignettes and with Valentine’s Day mossy hearts. *This post contains affliliate links hearts.

I really love how moss hearts are so organic and earthy. Plain moss hearts or those made with neutral and natural elements like this poppy cone and lichen twig heart wreath can really be used year round.

A couple of years ago I made some beautiful Shabby Chic Valentine Hearts using scrapbooking materials, vintage treasures and moss. Check out the post for all the DIY details.


I have always been drawn to the organic elegance of mossy hearts. My own moss covered heart was inspired by beautiful Nordic or European style mossy hearts.


My friend Debra of Common Ground has a wonderful round up post of these types of elegant Moss Covered Hearts.

In additon to the large “wedding” heart, I made a couple of smaller hearts to embellish my other DIY handmade shabby Valentine hearts and to tuck in winter vignettes.
