One of my New Years Resolutions was to always have fresh flowers in my house, and honestly, I never realized how much I LOVED having them. It also helps that Trader Joes has them in my price range. Can I get a HECK YEAH for being broke with expensive taste?

Anyway, I realized early on that I didn’t have a vase to put things in. More specifically, I was using an empty jar candle glass as my vase. Yes folks, I have stooped that low. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I’m just 29 years old now and should probably stop living like a college kid. So what is a girl to do? She makes it her freaking self!

So (in a well ventilated area… like outside or something)! Slowly but surely layer your stones on your vase starting from the bottom up. Spread a medium sized drop onto each stone and press it onto the vase for about 10 seconds each. I found it worked best to do about 2-3 rows then let it set for an hour or two then come back and do more.
