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 were worth it. I needed something colorful and cheery for my guest bedroom. 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)
- Take the branches and clip them the same height.
- Double spray paint the branches.
- Let dry while you go make the hearts.
Making the hearts:
Found this technique to make the 3D hearts here
- Start by punching out the hearts from the scrapbook paper. (as many as you like)
- Cut a slit on the top of one heart as well as on the bottom of another heart.
- Tie the 5-inch string on the slit of the one heart that is on the bottom. (see the picture above.)
- 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 tangled when you move the tree, so untangle them after you find the perfect location to display.
I’m truly excited about the outcome. Will you be putting love in the air with this adorable heart tree diy.
