I’ll be having a solo Valentine’s Day over here — cue cheesy rom-coms and a boat load of wine haha!

Valentine’s Day DIY Centerpiece Inspiration
Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love flowers! No, seriously! I would deck my house out in pink, florals, and white fur. That really is my dream house. Maybe when I’m a old lady in a fab nursing home, I’ll finally be able to get my dream floral decor. Until then, I have to make due with my DIY projects.
At first, I was going to create a Valentine’s Day DIY wreath since I’m learning how good I am at them. Between the DIY Fall wreath and the Candy Cane Christmas wreath (that I’m totally late on putting on the blog), mama is killing it at this DIY thing. While shopping in DollarTree, it hit me. Why not try my hand at a new DIY project? The large fancy decor plate gave me the inspiration to create a Valentine’s Day DIY Centerpiece for a romantic dinner.

DIY Centerpiece Directions
- Cut individual flowers at the stems of two flower bunches. ( These will be used as space fillers just in case there are any gaps between flowers.)
- Set aside the remaining supplies. You will only be working with the flower bunches and wreath metal frame at the moment.
- Wrap the flower bunches through the metal wreath middle opening. Think of a vine when doing this task. I go into more detail of this technique in my DIY Fall wreath blog post from a few months back. I wouldn’t pull the bunches too far in because you still want the flowers to look full.
- Continue wrapping the flower bunches until you’ve used all the flower bunches.
- Fluff out the flowers to ensure the top and bottom of the wreath frame is not showing.
- Use the cut individual flowers to fill any remaining spaces. I personally kept a pattern going with my flower. (purple, dark pink, light pink, repeat)
- Tuck any remaining stems into the wreath.
- Open the guerilla glue and squeeze the glue along the rim of the fancy dinner plate.
- Place the wreath frame onto the dinner plate with glue. Make sure to line the wreath frame with the glue.
- Hold this together for a few seconds.
- Place the centerpiece down to give it time to dry. Refer to your glue bottle for drying directions.
- Your vase will be placed in the middle of the centerpiece. I preferred a glass vase with a stand to give the centerpiece some height. If your vase doesn’t have a stand, purchase a glass single candle holder to give your vase some support.
