Easy Valentine’s Centerpiece

It’s almost time for Valentine’s Day, and I love decorating our home for holidays…no matter how small.  This year, I thought our dining room table could use a little love, so I made this super quick and easy centerpiece.  Most of the materials were things I already had or picked up in the dollar section at Target, so the entire project cost about $4.  Not bad for an afternoon of DIY-ing!

All you need to get started is a mason jar, some fake birch branches from Michael’s, a glue gun, and whatever shapes you choose to use (I used hearts for Valentine’s Day).


I cut the branches down to the size I wanted and arranged them in the mason jar.


Next, it’s just a matter of gluing the shapes onto the branches.  I started at the tops of the branches and then filled in until it looked the way I wanted.  I decided to stick with gold, red, and light pink.




I planned on being done at this point, but the mason jar just wasn’t really working for me. I grabbed some pink and white kitchen twine (again…Target dollar section!) and wrapped it around the jar. It made all the difference!



And there you have it…a cute, easy Valentine’s decoration for your home.



Spring decoration are up next–what are you crafting these days?
