Creations, Valentine Tree

Time to start thinking of Valentine’s Day!

And time for my little silver, scrawny, “Charlie Brown” tree to transform once again!

After a busy football season, it was time for a change

At first I left the black and red balls on the tree, but ultimately decided to start fresh~

I was out of funds decided to use what I could find on hand before doing any shopping

I still had pink ribbon from the Birthday Tree, and was delighted to find this hearts and cupids shiny garland in my Valentine stash

I set the tree in this white wooden crate and tucked heart tissue in to cover the base

I added the shiny heart ornaments I’ve had forever and a ruffled light pink ribbon, and it was looking quite festive already!

This cupid came out to perch near the top, but it still lacked something…

a few clicks on the computer and abracadabra, paper ornaments and conversation hearts!

I’ve heard that the 2014 conversation hearts have been updated with trendier sayings

The XOXOs are my favorite

For spending $0, I think it turned out pretty great!

    Where did you find the print outs. You wrote picmonkey. What and where is that and how do you get to it? Sorry never heard of it before.

    • picmonkey is a free online photo editor. Go to picmonkey.com, it’s very user friendly! I subscribe to Royale and get access to more designs but right now you can try it for free. I also just played around with fonts on my computer for the XOXO and 14. Have fun!

  11. Hi Jenna – ADORABLE! I have a small pink tree that I will be using for the party, and haven’t thought about decorating it yet but if after the party you see a picture and it looks like it was inspired by this… you are correct my friend! Thank you for linking up at the Peace, Love, and Chocolate party and for your support. Hugs, Holly
