Nothing Says Love like Flowers

Flowers have always been a staple of Valentine’s Day, but this year there’s no need to wait until the actual holiday to have flowers in your home. There are a ton of easy, crafty, and super chic ways to bring fresh flowers into your space.

Spell out your love (literally) through these adorable mugs-turned-vases. Pick your favorite flowers and cut the stems fairly short, then mix and match the flowers together to create a lovely display. The mugs can be found at Anthropologie for only six dollars each! (They also carry these mugs which are similar but have a little extra flair!) This idea is the perfect table centerpiece because it allows for everyone to see and chat over the low-set flowers.

If you’re looking for another clever spin on the standard vase, check out this innovative idea from Martha Stewart. Simply take an empty, glass container you have around your house (try a wine bottle, mason jar, or olive oil bottle) and coat the inside of the bottle with an enamel paint that is dishwasher friendly. For the full set of instructions see here. This easy craft can be completed in no time at all, and is the perfect way to flaunt your flowers!

If you’re willing to invest an afternoon in your flower display, you’ll definitely want to take a look at this clever hanging vase from the fantastic Emily Schuman. Though it will take more time than the others, there’s no need to be intimidated by this project! (Use of power tools are minimal, we promise!) Plus, the effect is stunning. You can find the original post here; it’s sure to transform your flowers into a virtual piece of art.
