Rosebud Heart Tie-on

What you will need:

about 25 dried mini rosebuds
Floral wire - 20 gauge
1/8" ribbon
ribbon decoration (bow or ribbon flower or a small yo-yo)
heart template (I used a 3" or 4" heart cookie cutter)
needle nosed pliers/wire cutter

Directions:

Form the wire into the shape of a heart with extra wire at the top in the center.

Thread the roses on the wire by puncturing the bud near the bottom of the petals but not through the green stem. This is much like stringing popcorn. I started by putting one on and centering it at the bottom V of the heart. Then I added one to each side of the heart until I reached the center.

Once you have all of the rosebuds on the heart. Using the needle nose pliers, twist the wire around itself to secure it, then snip it off.

Tie the ribbon into a large circle, then glue it onto the heart in the top center, making sure the knot ends up near the roses so it will be hidden. Cover the knot and the twisted wire with a decorative lace or ribbon bow. Glue it into place.

Hang this over a hook in your home, or tie it onto a gift.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
