Valentine’s Day Love Tree

Posted on January 25, 2012
I hope that you are all having a great week, can you believe that January is almost over?! It really doesn’t feel like January here in New Jersey, last weekend we had snow and today I only wore a light sweater because it was so warm outside – I can’t keep up with this weather! I’m always a little sad once all the Christmas decorations disappear from our house and the space feels so bare and empty, but luckily Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Time for some Valentine’s Day crafts!

VALENTINE’S DAY LOVE TREE
,
Today, I wanted to show you my Valentine’s Day Love Tree! It’s very easy to make… all you need is a pretty vase or pitcher and some branches, red and white felt, red and white thread, ribbon, a glue gun, polyfill to stuff your ornaments with and things to decorate the hearts with (sequins, beads, buttons, pearls… whatever you want!). I stuck to the red and white theme, but you could do any colors you wanted, of course!

First, I made a heart shape stencil so that all my ornaments would be the same size, and then I cut out lots of red felt hearts (two hearts for each ornament). I then decorated the top heart piece and cut a piece of ribbon, which I stuck to the back of the front heart piece using a glue gun. Next, I put hot glue all along the edges of the bottom heart piece, but leaving about an inch of edge space without any glue (this is where you will stuff the ornament through). Stick the top and bottom heart pieces together, and then stuff the ornament with polyfill (you won’t need a lot) through the hole you left without any hot glue. Once the ornament is stuffed, put some hot glue on that edge too, and seal the heart!

Here some pictures of my heart ornaments for my Valentine’s Day Love Tree!

This would also be a fun craft to do with kids, you could have each child design their own heart or do a heart with their names! It’s also a very inexpensive craft, all you need are some branches, felt, ribbon and embellishments! If you’re trying to look for fun, new crafts for Valentine’s Day, try this one! I will definitely keep all my heart ornaments, and add to them again next year!
 
Happy Crafting, Everyone!

    Great idea! You could use other colors/shapes from felt for other holidays. I don’t have any Valentines decorations and will be trying this out soon!
