DIY Personalized Chalkboard Vase

Dear Marc:
Valentine’s day is coming up and I wanted to make something a little different this year for my wife. She loves getting flowers but she never has a vase to put them in. I thought it might be nice to give her a personalized vase this year with flowers. Any ideas?

Dear Stephen:
Valentine’s Day – it can be the most wonderful time of year or your biggest nightmare, depending on how much thought you put into it. No matter how we try to cover it up, our sweethearts always know if their Valentine gift is an afterthought or something that took time to plan. “But sweetheart, I want to keep Valentine’s Day casual this year so that we can focus on what really matters” never works and if it does, your gig is up once she talks to all her friends and hears all the romantic things their partners have done. So it pays to put a little effort in making sure your valentine feels special!

One of my favourite gifts is a poem vase using Krylon Chalkboard Paint and a glue gun. We customized this project for Valentine’s Day with our choice of words, but this project can also be done for any occasion.

– Glue gun
