Valentine's Tree

Last fall my sister and brother-in-law were doing some yard work and had a bunch of branches to give me. Thank you so much!! If you've followed my blog for any amount of time you've seen these branches placed in my living room as well as our half bath. The branches from the living room had to go to make room for baby Jesus and friends however the branches in our half bath are still there. And they've changed with the seasons. Remember them in autumn?
And in winter?
Well now it's almost Valentine's Day and the branches are ready. I used my George cartridge for my Cricut and cut out several small hearts.
I used a dark red and ivory card stock. Then of course I had to use a book page or two. I folded each heart in half and used Elmer's white glue to put them together. I used one heart in each color for this craft.I glued two hearts together then before I added the third heart I used a little bit of hot glue to attach some jute to hang the hearts with. Finally I added my third heart.
The final product is a 3D heart hanging from my still sparkling branches.
I'm not sure what I'll do when baseball season officially starts. Hang baseballs? Not sure that would work out so well.



  1. You could make up logo's from your team and hang like the hearts... just a thought. Or a combination of paper cutout gloves, baseballs, caps and bats. Am enjoying following your changes through the year. Keep up the great work, am eager to see your remodeling complete on this site.

  2. Oh my gosh, CUTE! I need branches like this... I adore your design style.
