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 is not a new one. There are a 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 use this same idea for multiple occasions during every season no matter what the temperature feels like outside.
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:
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, paper white or amaryllis.
See what I mean? The possibilities for festive floral arrangements and greenery combination in every season is 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.
I can definitely see us making more of these in the coming months so let us know if you decide to make them too!
