Roses are Red and Violets are Blue, Chris has the perfect Valentines Gift for you

Valentine Centerpiece:

Whether you are hosting a Valentine dinner for friends or enjoying your special someone's company, this Valentine centerpiece will be a true treat!  You will need oasis foam, silk flowers, hot glue gun, and an elongated, rectangular poster frame.  First, take apart the sides of the poster frame and flip the original piece of paper over to display the blank side and cover with the original plexiglass.  Put frame pieces back together.  You will now cover three blocks of oasis foam in silk flowers.  We used small, red flowers and took them apart incorporating the green leaves as well.  Hot glue the flowers until the oasis foam is completely covered.  Repeat these steps on all three blocks.  Once complete, place each oasis block covered with flowers down the center of the poster frame leaving a few inches in between each block.  This project may also be completed using fresh flowers.  The poster board frame acts as a "protective platter" if you choose to soak the oasis foam in water when using fresh flowers.
