I made this heart bouquet last Valentine's season, and I still really love it.
I thought I would repost the tutorial for you all again this year so that you can make one too.

After they had dried, I sanded them because, of course I would. I can't like the too perfect painted look.
Next up, I grabbed this tool from the Hub's work bench to cut the floral wire into the lengths I wanted... I don't know what this tool is called, and I forgot to ask. All I know is that it did a freaking awesome job for me.
For the vase for my bouquet, I went out to my garage and hunted down this spray painted Frappuccino bottle that I made a couple of years ago.
I took the bow off, turned the bottle around, and then put the hearts in it. The great thing about the flower wire is that it's bendable, so it was easy to get the bouquet to look how I wanted.
I'm feelin the love around here.
