Conversation Heart Vase For Valentine’s Day

Today, we’re sharing how to make a quick and easy conversation heart vase for Valentine’s Day. 

As I’ve shared before I absolutely love our island cottage.

There’s not a lot of extra storage space for seasonal décor though which means I’m constantly looking for fresh ways to use things I already have on hand.

While we don’t go all-out decorating for Valentine’s Day, I do think it’s fun to have a few pops of color around the house to mark the occasion.  

This conversation heart vase for Valentine’s Day idea is not a new one.  There are plenty of pretty examples all over the internet. 

But it wasn’t until I decided to make one for my own home that I realized just how quick and easy they were to make. 

Not only that, they’re incredibly versatile which means we’ll be able to use this same idea for multiple occasions and throughout the year.  

Bonus, this conversation heart vase for Valentine’s Day took less than 10 minutes to create – start to finish!

Here’s a look at how you can create a conversation heart vase for Valentine’s Day too…

Conversation Heart Vase Supplies:

  • Medium – Large Glass Vase
  • Small – Medium Glass Vase
  • Conversation Hearts (or candy of your choice)
  • Flowers (we used 2 bunches of faux peonies)
  • Water (if using real flowers)
  • Flower Clippers (if desired)

Conversation Heart Vase Steps:

Gather your supplies.

Make sure your glass containers are clean, dry, and free from debris. 

Place your smaller vase, inside the larger vase.

Begin adding conversation hearts in the space between the two vases until it’s completely filled. 

Keep in mind, there’s a chance your vase might lean to one side or move during this step

So, be sure to watch it as you’re filling in this space.

If you’re using real flowers, add water to the smaller vase. 

Then place your flower stems inside the smaller vase.

Add additional conversation hearts to fill in any gaps as needed. 

What we love about this conversation heart vase for Valentine’s Day is that you can use any candy (save for chocolate) or flowers you like!

Think hot tamales, mike, and ikes, cinnamon hearts with tulips. 

For spring, you could use jellybeans and peonies, or roses.

In the summer you could use beautiful hydrangeas and a vase filled with blueberries, orange, lime, or lemon slices. 

When fall arrives you can use tiny pumpkins or beautiful leaves and mums. 

For the winter season, you can use small pinecones, greenery, poinsettias, paperwhites, or amaryllis.

The possibilities for festive floral arrangements and greenery combinations in every season are endless!

Plus, they’re super easy to make!

So, if you ever need a last-minute gift idea or have a special occasion like Valentine’s Day and you want to make something fun for your coworkers or teacher’s desk all these materials are budget-friendly.

  4. Your comment section is missing for Valentine’s Dessert Buffet (shows 2 comments, though) I knew this one was working since I commented this week LOL. I just couldn’t miss telling you that your vintage china is GORGEOUS! I like the cute touch of adding the donut to the straws, too. I followed you on Pinterest and Instagram. Happy Friday!

    1. You are so sweet, Allyson, thank you so much! I’ll check and see what’s going on with the comment section on the Valentine’s Dessert Buffet post. I appreciate you giving me a heads up on that.

Hugs for a happy week, CoCo

  5. I’ve always loved this idea, as well as the one using lemons. Your vase is absolutely stunning and quite romantic I think! I need to start using what I have more in creative ways as you mentioned. I’m starting to feel like I have way too much “stuff”! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. Pinned! xo Kathleen

    1. I really appreciate it, Kathleen, thank you! I’ve been trying really hard to use the things I already have on hand because this tiny island cottage literally has no storage. Plus, like you say all that stuff starts adding up 🙂 Hugs for a happy week, CoCo

  7. Such a fun and pretty project CoCo. It would be equally as perfect for spring decor too.
    Thank you for sharing your conversation heart vase at Create, Bake, Grow & Gather this week. I’m delighted to be featuring it at tonight’s party and pinning too.

    1. Oh my gosh, Kerryanne, thank you so much for the sweet feature! I’ve been out of town visiting my family so this was a fun surprise to come home to. I’m definitely with you this vase combination could be used in so many different ways throughout the seasons, especially for spring. I’m already thinking about trying robin eggs so I’ll let you know how it goes. Sending you lots of hugs and thank yous, CoCo

  8. I love how your flower arrangement came out. I always loved those pastel heart candies because they are so pretty to look at but never taste quite as good as they look. I collect Chintzware, have oodles of it, and I happen to have the same cup and saucer sets that you have on display. Mine is chintzware from Japan.

    1. That is so exciting to hear, Ann, thank you. I always giggle when I try those conversation hearts because they are supposed to come in different flavors now but I swear they all taste the same 🙂 The chintzware cup and saucer are from my sweet aunt’s set. She would have us over for tea and cookies after school and we would get such a kick out of it. I’m excited about your collection too. I know it’s such a treasure. Hugs for a happy week, CoCo

    1. That would be so cute for Easter, Karen! I’ve seen people use the marshmallow Peeps candy too. We’re always looking for ideas to help make things easier so I’m tickled pink you’ll be able to use this one. Hugs, CoCo

  9. This is such a great idea and I love how easy it is! I’m already thinking of ways to modify it for other holidays! Thanks for the inspiration and Happy Valentine’s Day!

  10. I love simple projects like this that can be done in less than 10 minutes for less than $10 dollar! It is so charming and creative. It definitely makes Valentine’s Day more festive. (Is Valentine’s Day considered a holiday? If not – how are we supposed to refer to it? It’s not a normal “day”? Right? ).

  11. I love easy, and 10 minutes is just right up my alley CoCo! I love the sentiment hearts, but I have never used them in a vase before, very clever, and so cute and festive! Inquiring minds want to know, you always have the most beautiful art in your backgrounds. Where do you find your art pieces? They are always so unique and attention grabbing. 😉
