Fresh flowers are such a romantic and easy way to bring a breath of fresh air into your home. Especially Valentine’s Day! You don’t need to buy roses or other types of flowers that cost more this time of year. We picked up some baby’s breath and mini carnations at our local supermarket’s florist department. The rest of the items we are using, are things we already own and reuse season after season.
Let’s start with our simple red mason jar vase. Just a jar with some red and white twine tied around the top. Using a hole punch, we turned our foam heart into a tag with a loving message. So incredibly easy.
The next vase uses a simple “tower style” salt shaker, ribbon & a foam heart! Just tie on the heart with the ribbon. Doesn’t get any easier than this one and becomes a small personal vase. Perfect on a breakfast bed tray; In the kitchen with a the dish soap; on the bathroom counter; on the bedroom nightstand. Perfect for parties to personalize the place settings that also double as party favors!
Used again and again, throughout the year, these chalk painted mason jars are one of our favorites. Such an easy & inexpensive DIY, we painted mason jars to use for a party but continue to use them for family gatherings and seasonal decor too. Now, for our Valentine’s decor, we start by adding cut flowers.
When we have our vases filled with the flowers, we put the vases in an up cycled wine box. Does the wine box look familiar? Last year we created it for our Spring decor. Though we made one easy update and wiped on a very light coat of chalk paint give it a white wash look.
After the paint is dry, the pink satin ribbon wrapped around the box gives the perfect finishing touch.
If you choose to use a satin ribbon, and find the ribbon slips a little bit, a tiny drop of hot glue helps keep in place.
With the small bouquets of flowers we created all these Valentine’s Mason Jars and had flowers left over. We could’ve made more. Our main point was to show that you can get a lot of bang for your buck when using these beautiful flowers and put Valentine love into your decor. Easy enough for anyone!
