Okay, turn your computer 45 degrees to get the real picture! At some point I'll remember not to take sideways pictures. I started with two of these on either side of a mirror that hangs over our couch. BORING!
I bought 2 packs of these clear stones for $2.49 each from JoAnn fabrics. I thought about doing colored stones and changing them with each holiday, but that didn't seem so "easy".
I poured one pack in each vase. It was the perfect amount.
I made two of the felt flowers I gave a tutorial on http://www.oursevendwarfs.com/2011/01/valentines-day-craft-i-created-no.html. Because I wanted them larger, I made each of the nine circles 3.5". If I were to do it again, I think I would have increased them to 4" circles for more of a pop!
Here's the finished project. For St. Patrick's day, expect the flowers to transform into something green. I think you may find some neat Easter eggs there for Easter... oh the possibilities of what can top those little glass stones.....
