Valentine's Day Dough Bowl Centrepiece

What are Dough Bowls

Dough bowls have been around for quite some time dating back to the early 1800s, hand-carved from wood they were used as a place for the dough to rise before baking. Today we use them for to hold a variety of things including candle wax...

Okay I know you didn't come here for a history lesson lol, so let's get to decorating. 

Let's start with your favourite dough bowl

The dough bowl I used was hand-sculpted by my hubby, we have similar ones available for purchase at 30% off, and as a bonus, all of our dough bowls are one of a kind, each one differs in size and detail.

Materials Needed:

  • Dough Bowl
  • Floral foam (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • Flowers of your choice ( I found some really great ones at the dollar store as well)
First, you want to cut the foam to fit into your dough bowl and depending on how many roses you're using you want to make sure you have enough foam in your bowl. Then you want to start adding your roses, if you're using more than one colour I recommend starting with your primary colour first and spacing it out evenly then add the secondary colours to fill in as you go, for my centrepiece I used red, pink, and white I added the red roses first as those where my main/primary colour and I just filled in the other two colours as I go. I used one and a half bunch of the red roses and a bunch of white and pink but you can mix and match based on your colour preference.

The heart was just a little extra pizazz, the cost to make this centrepiece was just under $10, I already had the dough bowl and the dollar store had everything else I needed. It took me 5 minutes to prep all my materials and about 10 minutes to put it together, it's a great cost-effective way to add a little colour to your living space. Let me know if you try it out :)
