Love You Day Tree

I saw an ADORABLE Valentines tree on Tip Junkie by Sharla at My Little Gems. I have a tree that sits on my ledge that I new would be perfect to decorate for the holidays. I can't believe I hadn't thought of it before!! Since I'm cheap like to save money, I didn't want to spend a ton for the decorations. I put on my thinking cap and made all the stuff to dress it up.

I bought the fabric for the garland at good old Wally World (which has surprisingly cute fabric). I took some wire and cut the fabric into strips. I tied the strips into knots on the wire. My next stop was Michael's for the hearts. I took puff paints (that I already had) for me and MnM to write Love You Day words on. I then put ribbon on the backs so that they would hang. The last thing was the button hearts. They were a grand total of FREE hundred dollars! I took buttons and threaded them onto some wire to form a heart shape. I finished them off with some ribbon so they would hang.

This was an awesome "use what you got" project. The only things I purchased were the fabric and the hearts!
