Valentine Centerpiece

Just want to quickly show you my sweet lil' Valentine centerpiece ....
You've probably seen the mason jars, wrapped with hearts and baker's twine ALL over Pinterest.

I wanted my own version!

I used several sizes of glass jars and milk bottles, wrapped them with paper doilies and cut-out hearts, and tied them up with red & white baker's twine.

Then I punched out some little hearts and glued them together on the tips of some bamboo skewers (you know ... the shish-ka-bob ones!?).

Finally, I slid them inside some hot-pink and white striped papers straws ....  totally cute!



This took me maybe 30 minutes .... and cost me literally nothing, as I had ALL of these supplies on hand.
Simple.  Cheap.  And Cute!  
It's a triple WIN, ladies! :-)
**And they would be perfectly adorable for drinks at a Valentine's party (without the bamboo skewers!).
