Heart Clip Tree w/Video

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and that is always a welcome day during the cold winter days.  Erin’s project is so cheery it will make you forget it is winter and get you in the mood for this holiday that is just around the corner.  Her clever creation is a perfect decor piece or jot a little note on the back and create a countdown to Valentine’s Day for the family or that special someone.

I love February with the feeling of love in the air. Right now with my kids is a fun little month with cute cards and always lots of candy, but it does put a smile on my face. So here is a cute little tree to brighten up my house for the season.  I made the entire tree from scratch with wood, clips, paint, paper, and glue.  Here is a video tutorial about how I made this fun little tree.

This is actually round 2 of the same tree I made for Christmas/Winter.  Click on the picture to see the post about that tree.  It is really a fun project for any season, a baby shower, wedding shower, kid’s birthday party, etc.  Let each person attending fill out a card and fill the tree before the party is over.

I used the wonderful papers, rope, paint, and mists from Canvas Corp and Tattered Angels to give the base of the color and feel of the tree.  I used Canvas Corp Pink and Red Rope, and for papers I used White Cardstock, Sending Love Words  on Ivory, Solid Pink on Ivory Cardstock, Red on White Mini Dot reverse, Pink & Ivory Mini Dot Reverse, Pink & Ivory Ribbon Stripe, and Hot Pink & White Ribbon Stripe.  I also used Tattered Angels Metallic Silver High Impact Paint, Cross My Heart Glimmer Mist, and Party Pink Glimmer Mist to give the shimmer and shine!

Send some love to someone in your family, either with a hug, card, or just saying something nice.  It is truly what Valentine’s Day is all about.  My hope is seeing this cute little tree in my front hall will remind me and the rest of my family to be a little kinder to each other!

About

I am a military wife, a stay at home mom (my children give me wonderful pictures to scrap with), 2 boys and 2 girls. My first love is my family, they mean everything to me. My second love is crafting, especially scrapbooking, but I also love DIY, cards, mixed media, and to alter items. I guess if you had to label my style it would be layered, romantic, shabby chic, mixed media, and pop art. I have been called the Queen of Layers!! I love to teach in person and on-line to educate others in my love for this craft.
