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!).


  1. That is a triple win for sure! I love it when you can make stuff from the supplies you already have at home!

  34. Cast said the company wanted to put each author's work on display.

    'We realized that we felt sorry for the books that were spine out,' she told The Seattle Times.

    And below each book will be something different too: a card that contains a review or rating from a customer on the site.

    Although Amazon Books does have the 'staff-favorites' section familiar to many bookstores, Cast said she wanted to share the voices of thousands of passionate readers that come on the site.

    'What better way to celebrate reading than to have the voices of readers under our books?' she said.
