When I am looking to make a project for the holidays, I like it to have a nature spin to it. This Valentine tree diy is a version of the one that inspired me from the House that Built Lars. It has tons of little pink hearts that have a 3 dimensional look to them. The hearts took the most time to make, but the end results was worth it. I needed something colorful and cheery for my guest bed-room. This was the perfect valentine’s accent.


Valentine’s Heart Tree


  • Branches(I found mine during my walk)
  • Scrapbook paper in pink
  • White spray paint
  • Pink and white twine
  • White pitcher
  • Heart puncher(purchased at Michaels)


  1. Take the branches and clip them the same height.
  2. Double spray paint the branches.
  3. Let dry while you go make the hearts.

Making the hearts:

 Found this technique to make the 3D hearts here

  1. Start by punching out the hearts from the scrapbook paper.(as many as you like)
  2. Cut a slit on the top of one heart as well as on the bottom of another heart.
  3. Tie 5 inch string on the slit of the one heart that is on the bottom.(see the picture above.)
  4.  Connect the two hearts together to form a 3-D heart.


Adding the hearts to the branches:

When you are adding the branches to the vase insert them in foam. This will keep them secure. When you are adding the hearts, make sure you tie them to the branches all the same height. Add them everywhere. The fuller the tree the better it will appear. They hearts tend to get tangle when you move the tree, so untangle them after you find the perfect location to display.

      It was such a easy product, a-bit time consuming to make the 3-d hearts, but thats it, everything else easy. Love to make hearts in different colors.

    […] I was super excited to get the opportunity to have my valentine tree featured in J-14 Decorate. It’s a magazine for teens to inspire them to decorate. I think it’s a great concept. I was very honored that they contacted me. The magazine spread has some really cute crafts from making a rose heart bowl which is made by placing roses in little bowls place on a bureau. This would look great on a table. I love the sweet heart frame made from assorted sweetheart candies. Love the heart art canvas, be mine garland and heartfelt  memories made with favorite photos in a heart shape. Valentine Day is one of those special occasions that motivates us to create fun and happy projects like these. My Valentine tree I created it  last year. I was walking my doggie and found some small branches, then it hit me. A valentine tree. Make love grow with my tutorial here! […]
