Conversation Centerpiece

And all you need is:
Conversation Hearts
A Vase
A SMALLER vase that fits in the larger one with enough space (half an inch) to create a wall of hearts- Preferably the same height as the outer vase
    THAT'S IT! Oh, and amazing flowers your love picks you up :)

    I originally used the vase you see above in the picture because I broke my OTHER vase I usually use and really had a bee in my bonnet to just GET THIS THING STARTED...but...I decided the shape of the bottom of the red vase rounded too much (meaning more hearts being used as filler...) So, I was resourceful, just like YOU can be!
    Yep, I used a candle that was on it's last limb. The straight down shape worked PERFECTLY. and it was the perfect height.

    The flowers in the candle jar :)

    (Filling the small vase with water first is pretty important, because if you did what I did before the tutorial pics, you will spill water all over your hearts while filling the smaller vase at the end. and you will get soggy hearts. Like this:
    upper right: soaking. sad. words 'melted' off haha


    Side Note: I tried to put all the sassy negative hearts facing the inside. I didn't want to see "YOU WISH!" on my hearts :) I like all the "CALL ME" ones showing!

    I'd love to see a picture if you try this! It is SO ridiculously easy! AND AWESOME!
