...hello my sweets!
today I will be sharing with you,
a very simple tutorial of an
rose heart center piece!!
with nothing more than a few supplies,
you too, can make one of these rose centerpieces!
So lets get started.
here is a list of what you will need:
* a container ~ I have chosen to use this glass heart,
* a ring of floral foam ~ much easier to cut and shape into my heart than the ususal blocks
* a bouquet of flowers that make your heart flutter with joy
I chose these sweetheart, pink blush roses
I purchased the glass heart, floral foam ring and candles from
the Dollar Tree store!
~ and the sweet blush roses came from my Wal-mart store
* step one: soak your foam in a bowl of warm water
with the flower additive powder you get with your flower bouquet.
you may have to put something on top until it absorbs enough water
and not just float!
*step two: start by cutting your foam with a sharp knife
pieces to fit snuggly into your heart
*step three: start shaping your centerpiece by snipping your flowers down
and pushing the stems into the foam
filling in as you go,
until you are pleased with the shape and fullness
a heart you can truely adore!!
I added the two blush colored candles on each side,
and tied them with pieces of pink silk
and embellished them with more vintage earring bling!
placed them all on top of this pretty footed silver tray
and smiled at the results!!
now all I need are some pretty tasty morsels!!
...and I just couldn't resist ~

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you will be inspired
to create a sweetheart centerpiece for your very own:)
