Mini Valentines Garlands

Deck the Tree with Hearts and Pom Poms!

Do you recognize it? The tree? It's my burlap and drop cloth tree that I just couldn't bear to put away after Christmas because I love it so much!

Seriously, have you ever seen anything so cute?

Okay, I may be a little biased, but it did get an entry into the online Christmas 2013 Decorating Guide in Decorating Life (pg.25 in case you're wondering). How cool is that? I didn't even enter :)

Anyway, all that to say...

In case you didn't already notice...

I decorated the tree for Valentines!!

I made the sweetest little garlands for this tree and my pleated drop cloth tree. And the best part? They were easy peasy!

Here's how I did it...

I took my red yarn and laid it out. And then I simply hot glued pink and red pom poms, chipboard hearts and tiny crocheted flowers to it. 

Once the glue had dried, I just lightly wrapped the garland around my tree. 

Did you spot the tiny vial of 'Love Potion'? I added one of those too!

For my other tree, I just grabbed some wooden balls and spools, threaded them onto my yarn, and knotted them in place.

All of these supplies can be found at any craft store. I happened to already have them in my stash, so it was a freebie craft for me :) Love those!

The trees add a nice pop of color to my mantle for Valentines.

To see more of my Valentines crafts and tutorials, you can read about my vintage Love sign, find out how I made the mini pallet sign, how to make some adorable felt hearts, how to make the love potion, and those swags you see hanging on my mantle. 

Oh, and there just might be a Valentines wreath and a burlap heart tutorial coming up, hint hint :)

I've been a busy girl!
