C r a f t B r e a k : F e l t H e a r t s & V a s e D e c o

Made this little apartment accessory on a recent craft night with a friend. I used a recycled frappuccino bottle and hot glued on some faux moss ribbon and added a bow. To make the hearts I cut two matching hearts out of felt and glued the edges (you could also stitch the hearts together) leaving a half inch opening at the point.  When the glue was dry, I addled a little stuffing and inserted a bamboo skewer. I followed this with some more glue to close up the point.  Use a little cube of floral foam to hold the skewers in place once they are in the bottle. 
This is an easily customizable project in which you can match colors to your decor and use all different kinds of techniques to decorate the bottle. 
Get creative and have fun with it!
