Valentine’s Craft: Felt Stemmed Roses and Vase
Valentine's Day is one month away and I'm getting in the spirit with this Valentine's craft. I love decorating for this celebration of love mostly because I LOVE red and pink home decor. Today, I'm going to share with you an easy upcycle of a bud vase, along with some pretty felt rose stems for a Valentine's vignette or for a little table decoration for your home.
How to Make Felt Stemmed Roses and Valentine's Vase
- Bud sase
- Plate or tray for vase
- Glass paint
- Floral wire for flower stem
- Hot Glue and Scissors
- Pink felt
- Extra decorations: doilies, glass beads, etc.
I started by painting my bud vase. I free handed multi colored hearts all over the vase, but you could always use a stencil or a foam stamp depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
While I allowed my vase and charger to dry, I got started on my felt flower. I followed the same instructions for a traditional felt flower, except I wrapped it around a piece of floral wire to make it look more like a stemmed rose. I glued every 1/2 inch or less and then used the leaves to cover up the bottom of the flower.
This project is very easy and won't take you too long to make. It's a fun way to get ready for Valentine's Day and is something you can reuse each year! Happy Valentine's Day!
