A Simple Valentine Centerpiece

Last week I started a couple of Valentine projects to spiffy up the house for February. 

Here's a super fast & easy Valentine centerpiece that you can whip up in under an hour!

All you need is a large cylinder vase, 3 paper doilies, paper hearts (I cut mine with my Cricut from some pretty scrapbook papers), a sewing machine, thread, & some baker's twine.

I started by laying out the paper doilies & arranging the hearts.

Then, I simply fed them through the sewing machine using a wide zigzag stitch.

I wrapped it around my vase & secured it with some turquoise baker's twine.

I added my trusty battery operated pillar candle.


(At night.)

I also cut some extra hearts & put them in my seasonal wreath. (You can see more seasons here & here.)

It's official: The Valentine's decorating has begun!
