14 Ways- Day Four: X & O Bouquet

Tell your loved one how much you care with a fun X & O bouquet made from scrapbook paper and BBQ skewers.

If I really wanted to embarrass my husband I would have taken this to his office with balloons and had the front desk deliver it...but instead I made a little display on our piano for him to see when he gets home from work.

How-To Make a X & O Bouquet

What you need:
  • Scrapbook paper in Valentine's colors
  • Vase
  • Floral Foam
  • BBQ Skewers
  • Tulle
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • Circle Punch (optional)

Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to wrap around the inside of your vase and secure with tape on the inside.

Cut your floral foam into manageable pieces for your container.

Place foam inside your vase. Adjust the height of your foam according to your desired placement of your Xs and Os.

Cover foam with fabric- I chose tulle.

Cut out your Xs and Os according to the size and shape you prefer. I used my circle punch for the Os and traced a large letter X from my computer to use as a pattern. I ended up making big and small Xs.
Glue your shapes back-to-back on BBQ skewers. 

Stick the completed skewers into your foam to create your bouquet.

If giving away, perhaps add candy skewers into the mix!
