Valentine vase made from a jelly jar and tissue paper
This Valentine vase was made from a jelly jar covered with torn pieces pink, white, and red tissue paper. I put about a quarter's size dollop of white glue with the same amount of water. Mixed it around with a cotton swab and then dipped the swab into the glue/water mix and smoothed it over the piece of tissue paper I was attaching to the jar.
So the jar shouldn't have water in it since it would ruin the tissue paper decoration, but dried flowers would be nice in this vase. Just dry a bouquet of roses upside-down. When they are completely dry, trim the stems, and display them in this vase.
I also made some paper flowers for the vase because I didn't want to wait for the real ones to dry.
