With today being Valentine's Day, this DIY idea from Creature Comforts comes at just the right time. If you are planning a special meal at home, or just want to decorate a bit with something new, this easy project turns ordinary cans and bottles into festive vases perfect to create a special display for your loved one.

These are wrapped in leather, but the idea can be applied to ribbon or twine — just about anything that suits your style.

The supplies are all easy to come by. EZ of Creature Comforts explains:

Gather your supplies. You will need:

• Tin can(s), emptied, cleaned, and dried | Make sure to use the variety with the pull-off top so that you are not left with any sharp edges. You can also use a glass cup in place of the can if you prefer.
• Sharp craft scissors
• Realeather Craft Lace in Metallic Gold and / or Silver. Be sure that your leather cord has two flat sides (like a fettuccini noodle...not round like a spaghetti noodle).
• Hot glue gun (low heat) and glue stick(s)
• Fresh flowers (and water)
