I was going to write this post yesterday, but I ended up spending an hour and a half at Best Buy because my neato little 7″ tablet broke for the second time in a year…actually a year and two days, because of course it had to wait until the warranty expired. Awesome. So, I decided it would be better to just upgrade my current dumb phone to a smart phone and join the rest of society. But I had to order it, so I won’t be able to join the rest of society until Tuesday. Anyway, by the time I got home and put Penny down for a nap and ate lunch, I really didn’t feel like writing anything and I was pretty annoyed with technology in general. But, today is a new day.
This is a super easy little project that took me about five minutes, but I’m really happy with how it turned out so I thought I’d share it with you. I used two Valentine floral picks and the glitter heart table scatter from Dollar Tree that I mentioned in my Valentine earring post. I also used white tissue paper and a clear vase that I already had on hand.
I had originally put the flowers in my spray painted wine bottle vase, but I didn’t like how that looked, so I put them in the clear vase that I have. But then I didn’t like having to see the ugly plastic stems. So I grabbed the tissue paper and lined the vase with it, then I put in the flowers. Since I had gotten red and white, I kind of intermingled the stems so they looked like one bouquet. Then, to give it a little extra pizzazz, I took some red glitter hearts and carefully placed them between the tissue paper and the vase. I say “carefully” because sometimes they would just drop to the bottom of the vase, so I had to make sure I placed them so they had a little wrinkle of tissue paper to sit on or to hold them in place.
Here’s what it looks like finished:
I really like how the glittery hearts in the bouquet tie in with the glitter hearts in the vase. Are you decorating for Valentine’s Day? Share your ideas in the comments, I’d love to hear them!
