Basic craft materials transform a glass cylinder into a delightful custom vessel.

     Fast, simple and perfect for making in advance of Valentine’s Day, this charming vase dressing offers a fun, contemporary red option for the holiday. And the casual placement of assorted varieties of miniature Gerberas, all in crimson hues, reinforces a playful feeling.

     To cover the vase, simply spray adhesive onto it, and wrap patterned felt around the vase. Then hot-glue wooden buttons along the seam, positioning their holes vertically for a tailored look. Hang a simple heart-shaped tag, cut from the patterned felt, from one of the miniature Gerbera stems with jute rope.

miniature Gerberas and jute rope from favorite suppliers; Essentials™ Cylinder from Oasis® Floral Products; felt and buttons from crafts store.
