I glued tiny water filled drinking straws at a slight angle into the nutshell to give the plant material a water source. But both the Kalanchoe 'Calandiva Pink' flowers and the Ceropegia woodii leaves will remain turgid out of water for at least a few days. The variegated grass will dry and curl slightly but will keep it's shape tucked under the rosary vine.

Glue the Kalanchoe 'Calandiva Pink' blossoms to cover the magnet.
Finish the design with a sparkly bead, two heart shaped Ceropegia woodii leaves and a variegated ribbon grass folded like an awareness ribbon
Fit the larger magnet at the back of the nutshell.

When you need to keep a tiny stem hydrated this is just what you need.
This is a convenient way to keep flowers perfectly upright while you wait for glue to dry.
Sunday April 22 is Earth day and a tiny floral fridge magnet is a wonderful reminder of just how beautiful our planet is.
