Just an FYI

You know how you see those cool projects on a blog and think, I could do that but you are sure it never turns out that way. This one does work. I saw it here . You need to give it a try.
It would make a great centerpiece if you are hosting a Valentine's Day Party. It is super easy and is only $4 to make.

Went to Dollar General and found a candle stick holder for $1.

After a trip to Wal-mart, I found the skinny vase thingy for $3.

Got out my hot glue gun. Glued the candle holder to the vase and ==ta-da=== a VASE with a BASE. If you want to buy one at the store, ready made they are like $15. It was really easy and very quick.

I filled it with some old silk flower petals I had. Tied it with some ribbon from my stash. Put it on a shelf.
For those of you who have been to my house and don't recognize this shelf. Yes, I changed everything on it!! After 6 years it was about time.
So if you are looking for a fun, quick project, give it a try. If you have a project that really works let me know--I LOVE trying new things.
