During the month of February, love is in the air as we celebrate Valentine’s Day with heart candy, chocolates, flowers and special valentines! I love to decorate for every holiday. This year for Valentine’s Day I needed something for our kitchen table so I decided to create a centerpiece utilizing sticks and branches from around the yard and our favorite —conversation hearts.
Sticks
Spray paint (red, pink and white)
Styrofoam balls
Candy conversation hearts
Valentine-themed ribbon
Vase
Hot glue gun
Glue sticks
5 MIN: Collect branches and sticks from the yard. Be sure to collect a few sturdy sticks in order to push the stick into the Styrofoam ball.
15 MIN: Spray paint each branch. Be sure to spray paint all sides of the sticks to fully cover. I used pink, red and white spray paint.
1 MIN: Fill a flower vase with dry, painted branches.
2 MIN: Fill the vase with candy conversation hearts (this will secure the branches in place). I used three bags of candy hearts.
10 MIN: Hot glue candy hearts to Styrofoam balls. I used two different sizes of Styrofoam balls.
2 MIN: Push stick into the Styrofoam ball with glued candy.
3 MIN: Tie Valentine’s Day ribbon in bows on the sticks and around the vase.
For an alternative … hot glue the conversation hearts to Styrofoam balls and use the candy balls in a decorative glass bowl on your coffee table.
