Celebrations: valentine vases {pink & glittery}

Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? I usually don’t go all out but a little splash of red or pink  is always fun.


I found this bead garland in the Christmas clearance aisle. It was so ridiculously pink and glittery I had to have it for Valentine’s Day.


I unstrung the beads and used them to decorate a few plain vases.


For this vase, I glued the pink matte beads around the rim.


This vase had a rim, so I strung the glitter beads on a piece of wire and wrapped it under the rim. 


I have very few flowers in the garden right now but I was able to scrounge up a few pink Camellias and some Jasmine for the small vase.


I still have a lot of beads left, but for now, I think this is enough pink.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. What lovely colors. Sure looks like a Happy Valentine display. Great beads. I tend to decorate for all the holidays and change of seasons. Did get my Valentine decor out and Christmas packed away. Just refreshing to have a clean house!!! Thanks for the inspiration
