Did you see our super cute DIY felt veggie garden on Monday? Since then we have decided to create a tomato plant that is a perfect hanger for the little red tomatoes. It helps to add a little height to the veg box and is perfect for hanging and picking those ripe felt tomatoes.
The vine, made from paper-wrapped floral wire is available in crafts stores and is really easy to bend and manipulate to your liking. We bunched ours together, then secured them between two jumbo craft sticks (the same as we used for the garden markers which will be Friday’s post) with a little felt wrap at the bottom so they will not slide around in the burlap dirt.
- Lia Griffith’s Wool Blend Felt – Cherry, Cranberry, Jade Ocean, Kelp, Pine, and Evergreen
- Embroidery Floss – 666, 902, and 3815
- Stuffie Puff (Poly-Fil)
- Rustic Vine Wire
By bending the stems at the top to create a little hook you can hang your little red tomatoes. We then added 30 felt leaves in 4 different greens, using our hot glue gun. How cute is this? Our little models had such fun harvesting the veggies and were particularly taken with the tomato vine. Come back tomorrow for our fabric basket tutorial and Friday for the garden signs. . . then you will be all set to make your own felt veggie garden. If you have been inspired by our project and tutorials please do share them with us using the #MadeWithLia hashtag. You can find us on Facebook and Instagram. Enjoy! ~ Lia
