Valentine's Day Tree

Happy Valentine's Day

I have this lovely little reproduction of an antique feather tree that we keep in our kitchen. My little boy and I decorate it for each season or holiday. I thought you might be interested in seeing some of our valentine's day ornaments we made ourselves. We found some reproductions of some old valentines and cut them out and glued them on white foam meat trays. (your butcher will give you a couple if you ask nicely) :-) You could also use foam core board if you're scared of your butcher. :-) I like the meat trays because they're thinner, but you can use which ever you like. We used tubes of glitter glue to "highlight" some of the more interesting parts of the valentines that we cut out. You can get glitter glue at Dollar Tree, Walmart etc. We used straight pins with decorative colored heads to hold white ribbon on the tops of our ornaments for a hanger. We just put a dab of glue on the pins as we stuck them down into the foam trays. We left the ornaments alone to dry and presto, pretty little valentines decorations for your tree. (or where ever you want to put them) I found some little red plastic hearts on a clearance rack to add to our tree and we were done. Oh, the tree also has some sweet little pink flower buds hot glued to the tips of each makes it so romantic and cottagey. (there's that word again, I really need to look that up and see if it's a real word!) lol

Hope you enjoy our Valentine's Day craft!

Have a Blessed Day!
