Valentines Tree

I love mixing patterns and textures! I wanted to do some more Valentine's decorating using things I already had around the house. I had some cute red and white polka dot tissue paper to start with. And I decided to use some newspaper to mix with it. I traced small hearts on each kind of paper and cut them out. I poked a hole towards the top with a pencil and my daughter Emma hung them on tree branches for me. I kind of wish I had cut more newspaper hearts, but I'm not about to "correct" Emma's work. I love how it turned out!


  1. How did you get your vase to look like it has small branches on it? Did you paint it?

  2. Michelle- I bought it that way at Marshalls a couple of years ago. If you had a steady hand or used a template, I don't see why you couldn't replicate it with black glass paint though.
