"Shabby Chic Romantic Valentine Vases"

Recycling to re-invent never looked better!

Here's a great way to recycle all those wine bottles during the last year. For Valentine set a shabby chic romantic scene. Instead of putting all your roses or flowers in one vases, why not place them in single vases for a spectacular effect. Recycling with style, unassuming bottles in assorted sizes and shapes are transformed with colourful texture to create stylist vase accents. This easy to apply textured effect is achieved by combining acrylic paints with a thickening relief medium. Bring colour and personality to your Valentine decor presentation. Parade the colourful textured vases as a captivating centerpiece, or line them to grace a mantel, staircase steps or window. Add gorgeous roses for fragrances and candles for atmosphere.
