Love Week: Valentine's Day Mason Jar Bouquets

These mason jars filled with doily flowers are a pretty DIY Valentine's Day decoration or centerpiece! #valentinecrafts #valentinescrafts #masonjarcrafts #doilycrafts #doilyflowers #paperflowers #valentinesdaycrafts

We're bringing you more love for Day 2 of Love Week! Did you catch the yarn heart wreath yesterday? Today I have another pretty piece of home decor that is so easy to make - a set of Valentine's Day mason jar bouquets filled with doily flowers. I love mason jar crafts and the combination of the iconic jars with burlap hearts and doilies from Oriental Trading creates a pretty vintage look, while the colorful doilies give it a modern color palette. 

Fill the LOVE jars with simple doily flowers and you have a DIY centerpiece that will look great for Valentine's Day or all year long! Read on for more of this simple project I made for Oriental Trading's Fun365.com, and come back tomorrow for more ideas!

It requires just two supplies - chunky yarn and a wire wreath form

This easy yarn heart wreath is the perfect TV watching craft that you can do over the course of an evening and have a pretty new piece of decor in time for Valentine's Day. Read on to see how easy it is to make and come back tomorrow for more of #DILoveWeek!

Design Improvised Turns 8 - Year in Review!


Well guys, the earth has circled the sun yet another time and this little blog keeps chugging along. If that's not an occasion for throwing pom-poms in the air, I don't know what is! Each year when I do these anniversary posts I am increasingly in awe that I am still doing this. :) A lot has changed in the online world since I started Design Improvised in January 2011 but for the most part I've been steady on my path of making and creating in the same way I always have.

Each year brings new milestones and unexpected opportunities so I wanted to share those with you in my recap of 2018 and give a peek at my plans for 2019. I can't thank you all enough for continuing to show up here at this little spot of the internet. If I have encouraged you to try even one project or have brightened your day with my ideas, then my job has been a huge success!
