re-styled valentine decor

Here's another super quick and easy idea for some festive Valentine's decor. We "re-styled" this plain old vase with a piece of printed scrapbook paper. Cut your paper to the length of your vase, wrap it around, and secure with a strong paper adhesive or double-sided tape. You could also add a ribbon, but we thought this paper had enough going on without it. Now for some flowers to go in it (hint, hint!).

We "re-purposed" this glass votive holder by taking out the candle and filling it part way with heart-shaped marbles. This is a small dining room table, so a small centerpiece is definitely in order. I found these hearts at a wholesale decor store a few years ago, but I've seen similar marble hearts at Michael's this year. Check out the marble/rock aisle at your craft store.

I just made some Valentine's Day Felt Fortune Cookies and they reminded me of the crafty girls from Little Birdie Secrets. I posted the pictures on your flickr account and I'll have a tutorial up on my blog soon:
