I love decorating for Valentine’s Day! There’s nothing better than a holiday about LOVE, so I try to think of inexpensive ways to decorate that don’t take up much storage in my attic. I bought this cool slim silver prelighted tree this year, for my newly remodeled basement, and I kept it out to try and use it for a Valentine’s tree. After a few decorations, like a red chain garland I got on clearance after Christmas, and a few hanging hearts I had in gold and pink, it still looked like a Christmas tree I had forgotten to put away.
I love those antique/vintage Valentine’s, the cute ones that have the adorable little kids and animals,so I decided to try and find some of those. Ebay had some great REAL ones that were amazingly expensive, so after shopping around, I found this awesome book of reproduction vintage Flocked Valentine’s from Golden Books! So cute! Think there around 25 Valentine’s to punch out. I found these cute little clothespins with glitter in the Target Dollar area. It was super easy and fast! I simply pinned these adorable Valentines all over the tree! By the way, they punch out really well, no tearing involved, and some of them are 3D. Adorable! Go here* to find this adorable book.
After adding the Valentine’s, I decided to go ahead and cut out these envelopes and put them on the tree too. I simply followed the directions to put them together, used a hole puncher and glitter pipe cleaners to add them on. My last add on was to add some glittery bows from fabulous roll of ribbon on Christmas clearance. I just stuck them in the branches where it needed some color. I think it turned out really cute! I just need a giant heart for a topper. Hmm..I’ll have to work on that soon!
