After making a trip to a few craft stores and a few times to the dollar section at Target, I look around my house and notice I’ve got piles everyone of random inexpensive craft items. Often I have no plan for them, but at some point have declared, “Oh, I could totally do something with this!”
Case in point, my newest Valentine’s Day Centerpiece! It’s made out of Target Christmas napkins on clearance for $0.50 and Hobby Lobby paper straws for $1.00 = a total of $1.50, folks!
. red and white striped cocktail napkins
. green and white striped paper straws
. hot glue gun
To make the flowers, take one napkin and fold it in half to make a triangle.
Then, fold it in half two more times. On the folded edge of your napkin, cut a curved petal shape. Be sure to leave a small portion of the folded edge in tact.
Using my hot glue gun, I glued the flower point to the tip of my paper straw. I left the ribbon long for a little decoration.
You can go simple and just do a single flower.
