Colorful Mosaic Vase

This colorful mosaic vase was made with colorful printer pastel paper.  I used a Trop50 juice container because I love the shape and I weighed it down with small stones . Then I added some colorful silk stems. I had all my pieces of paper in front of me. I worked on one side at a time so the Mod Podge would not dry too soon. 

You can buy the stones and sand at any garden store or you might have stones outside around your house.

Bouquet of Roses

 These roses were mades from chenille stems.  The red stems were coiled to make the roses and the green ones were looped and made the leaves and the stems.  Pretty cool isn't it.  I gathered the stems with red curly ribbon and tied a  bow.  When you present this cute arrangement to someone  who couldn't resist.

Valentine's Frame with felt pink and red roses

This colorful frame is a styrofoam base and then yarn with variegated shades of pink was wrapped around it.   Felt roses were made from pink and red and then glitter was applied to both the pink roses and hot glued to the frame.  A piece of cardboard to the back with a piece of pink cardstock that a photo can be displayed or the backing can be removed and it can  displayed on a wall as a Valentine's Day wreath.
