Bleeding hearts are a weird flower aren’t they? Their name makes you think either your husband said the most awful thing to you or you just got stabbed in the chest with a pencil because your child was running with.
They also look like a flower that was brought by a visiting alien. They’re just weird. But in a beautiful way. I hadn’t even heard of them until recently. My sister hadn’t heard of them. My husband cerntanly hadn’t heard of them. And unless you are a flower enthusiast, you probably hadn’t heard of them until now.
It was a little difficult getting the paper to bend into the 3D shape of a bleeding heart but “It can be done”(I say this with a bravado voice as I point my finger to the sky)
I wasn’t sure if I would like this flower at first. When I made just one of the 6 flowers, it looked really weird. But when I put all the flowers together in a vase, they looked pretty.
If you want to make a vase just like mine, I made it with white chalk finish spray paint that I got at Lowes (buy it on Amazon) and a vase from the dollar store. Don’t you think it turned out cute?
