Valentine’s wreath made out of Brussel sprouts.

What a beautiful and simply made Valentine’s wreath. By taking Brussel sprouts from the vegetable section of the grocery store, you can create this adorable wreath. Hang it on an exterior or interior door, a mirror or window! It will be a conversation starter.
