DIY Ombre Valentine's Day Heart Tree

To say I'm obsessed with these is an understatement. 

Maybe it's because they took a bajillion hours to make and I have burn marks on my fingers.  


But they were a labor of love! Get it..love....I know corny. But I'm allowed to be after spending so much time on these! 


The best part, they cost my under $10 to make! 


Here's what you'll need:



3 glass candlesticks (I got mine from DollarTree)
3 different size foam trees (Dollar Tree and Hobby Lobby with 40% off coupon)
Heart Picks (Dollar Tree)
Various color paper (I already had this on hand, but I saw a pack at Michael's for $3.99)
Heart punch, Cricut, or Silhouette that can cut heart shapes
Hot glue gun

First, hot glue the candlestick to the bottom of the tree form. (Trust me, do this step first. It's impossible to make these without the candlestick on the bottom. I may have attempted the first tree this way, and it was not fun!) 

Then load your Cricut with paper and set it to make as many hearts as will fill the page. My pages were 9X 12 and I could fit 24 hearts at 1.5 inches. 


Now for the tough part......Walk away, eat a snack, come back, put new paper in, walk away, eat more, come back, put new paper in, eat some more, watch a daytime TV show, go back, put new paper in...well you get the idea! (and maybe I should stop snacking so much too!!)




After I cut a million hearts, I headed down to plop infront of the tv. 


To layer the hearts, I placed the first layer so it was slightly hanging over the bottom. 


Then I glued, and glued, and glued. Don't forget times 3 trees! 


To finish, I simply cut the stick on the heart topper down to a few inches, then put in the top of the tree. 


But I'm loving how they turned out! 





Hopefully you got a little sneak peek of the rest of my Valentine's mantel too. I'll share the whole thing soon :)

These are so cute, Lisa! I need to get or make some Valentine's decorations and you have inspired me. And I'm not gonna lie- it's a little funny that "Valentine's mantel" is a phrase in your vocabulary!

Adorable. Found your blog while looking for painted furniture on Pinterest. Just so happens I also enjoy paper art so this is perfect. ;)

These are so cute and would be great for a lot of different holidays. I really need a Cricut! For now I'm lucky enough to borrow my mom's periodically at least.
