Valentine Tree


It's the time of year when we're stuck inside and become inspired to do fun crafts.  I found this idea on a blog recently and decided we had to give it a try.  The hardest part for me was finding branches! We only have baby trees around our house so we went on a search for these branches.  I spray painted them gray and then we made our little valentine ornaments for it.  We used felt, buttons, laces, rick rack, pearl beads, polyfill stuffing and let our imaginations do the rest.  I set the "tree" in a red pot and stuffed tissue paper around the base to keep them standing up.


















Happy Valentine's Day!
