A Valentine's Tree

My mom gave me a little white Christmas Tree this year that she was just going to throw away. We used it during Christmas as another decoration and then put it away. Then I saw on someones blog (I wish I could remember who! Update: It was Laurel's cute tree that I saw, you can find it Here) that they created a Valentine's Tree out of their little white one. Why didn't I think of that?? So here is my first Valentines Decoration of the year.

I was going to make my decorations but then I went to Michale's and found these cute little hearts on sale. The only problem was that they only had red, which really isn't a problem if you have some glitter and Mod Podge.

I just did a layer of Mod Podge (has it always been Mod Podge, I thought it was Modge Podge) and sprinkled the glitter on. Then I cut some ribbon and stuck it to the top of the heart.

Ta Da, pretty cute.

The finished Valentine's Tree. Now I just need to find some little gifts to go under it.

I love it. I have to make this! I will let you know when I do, and link back. Thanks for the great idea. :)

I love your tree and how you gave the ornaments a fun treatment to make them even cuter. I am still kicking myself for not buying a pink tree at an after Christmas sale. It would be perfect for decorating now.

I used the same hearts to decorate my valentine tree, but didn't think to tie with ribbons. I enjoyed my visit i'll be back.
