I have a home decor project for you today. This was so much fun. I have a Valentine tree. Now the story of the tree.
I used to buy lots of decorations the day after Christmas but I quit doing that several years ago. I would only buy wrapping paper for the next year. Well, this year I didn't even go to a store for about a week after Christmas. I know, unbelievable, right? Anyway I was killing time in Walmart waiting for an appointment and I decided to see what was left in the decoration department. There was a ton of these little trees and they were 50% off which made them $4.50. So I thought, why not? There wasn't a pink one so I got white and bought hot pink little decorations for it.
I was pretty happy with my find. But when I checked out they weren't half off...they were 75% off. So this cute little tree cost me $2.11 and the decorations were $.87 a card. So the next day I decided to go to another Walmart to try to find a pink tree. There was 1 left. It was hot pink so I bought white and silver decorations for it, same great prices. Yippee (Did I mention the trees are lighted?)
That's how I got my trees, decorations and mini tree skirts all for less than $15.00.
For this Valentine tree I used the white one because I wanted to use a lot of hot pink to decorate with.
Now for the project.
The rosette topper is from Ribbons & Rosettes and has a diameter of 5.5 " .It is wrapped with a gold and white crochet thread.The heart and love is cut from Victorian Romance, heart cut at 3.5 and love cut at 2.1
The winged cricut heads is from Cricut Decals (on the E2) and cut at 2" and layered in green and pink.
The heart with the swirls is from Home Decor, cut at 3.24. The circle with the M is cut at 2.58. I also used pink rhinestones and lots of diamond stickles. The little pinwheels, I can't remember where I got the cut.
Now I know the circles don't scream Valentines, but I saw hot pink M & M's on a commercial and knew they were going on my tree.I know it isn't logical, but what can I say? It's just me.
