Some of you may remember the cute Fall Centerpiece I did a few months back.
Well. Once the Christmas season hit, I had full intentions of turning them into something Christmasey, but got busy, set them aside, and never got around to it. But the other day I realized that it wasn’t too late to turn them into something totally cute for Valentines!! I stripped off the flowers and jewels (they were hot glued on so they came off pretty easily) and got to work.
I painted the branches white with a flat enamel spray paint and left them outside to dry overnight.
Then I sprayed both sides of a bunch of Conversation Hearts with Clear Acrylic Gloss Spray and let those dry at the same time. I used the large Conversation Hearts with the scalloped edges because I liked the size better, but small ones would work too. I’m not ENTIRELY sure that coating the candy was necessary, but I wanted to make sure they would stay nice. Just make sure that they are out of the reach of little ones, if you have kids who may try to eat them.
Once they were dry, I put the branches back in the glass bottles. I left the raffia wrapping on the bottle necks, but added a knot of pink ribbon for a pop of color.
I then hot glued the hearts to the branches…
And that’s it!! Cute right? I love how inexpensive they are to put together.
I should mention that my husband is thrilled with our new girly centerpiece. THRILLED, I say.
