- Two cardboard hearts from Joann Stores (I haven’t been able to find anything similar online, but you will want the hearts you use to be a 3D heart shape, not a box, although a box might work if you can get two lids, one for each side).
- Spray paint or acrylic paint in two colors
- Utility knife
- Industrial strength adhesive
- Faux flowers and succulents (my favorite places to get these are Afloral.com and ConsumerCrafts.com)
- Vinyl letters or letter stickers (optional to turn your hearts into conversation hearts)
Begin by removing any stickers or price tags from your hearts and painting them.
Once dry, use a utility knife to cut a 2″ by 1″ rectangle in the top of the heart.
Gently reach inside and remove the internal cardboard stabilizer.
Glue your small heart to your large heart and once the glue is dry, you can add all your faux flowers to your vase.
If you want you can also use your letter stickers to add your own “conversations” to the hearts.
Because this vase is cardboard, you can’t really add real flowers to it unless you place one of those water tubes on the bottom of each stem, but when you can get fake flowers that look this real, why mess with the real thing?
