With Valentine's Day in a few weeks (I know, already?!), it's time to break out of your comfort zone, skip the boring old store-bought gifts, and give your loved ones a gift from the heart. I am totally not a crafty person, but I can do the basics, like this DIY Valentine's Day Bud Vase.
Costs will be low for this adorable little Valentine's Day Bud Vase because the most expensive part - the shot glass - is something most of us already have at home. If you don't have a stash of shot glasses (we have a ton leftover from our wild house party days), you can pick up one for a buck at your local dollar store. You are likely to find the rest of these supplies at the dollar store as well!
- Small shot glasses
- Sisal rope
- Hot glue gun
- Embellishments: lace, trimming, felt, etc.
Starting at the bottom of the shot glass, run a thin layer of hot glue and attach the sisal rope to the shot glass.
Continue wrapping the sisal rope up the entire length of the shot glass, pulling tightly and pressing the rope together as you go.
Secure the sisal rope with another thin layer of hot glue when you get to the top of the glass, and cut off the loose end of rope. You can hot glue as you go up if you like, but a layer of glue at the top and bottom is all that is needed.
Wrap the sisal covered shot glass with lace and other Valentine's inspired embellishments and fill with flowers to create Valentine's bud vases.
See how easy that was? These little Valentine's Day Bud Vases make a great decoration for your own home or a sweet little gift for a loved one!
