DIY Heart Tree at The Other Side Vintage

 

It is rainy, overcast and a bit dreary in Sunny Florida today. Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away so hearts are upon the mind. This fun DIY decor is easy to create. Find a larger, sturdy vase to use along with some clean sand. You could also use rocks, marbles or other items to put as the filler of the vase. Go outside and find a few trees branches to use as the tree. We found these on the ground after the recent Jonas blizzard of 2016 so no trees were hurt during this creation.  These branches are a few feet in height and have lovely off shoots to arrange the hearts upon. Use budget friendly filigree heart shaped doilies and arrange them to create your heart tree. You could add lights, 3d puffy hearts, pine cones, bows or any other creative additions. What a cute, inexpensive, and simple way to decorate for the holiday! Please share with us your photos of creating this Heart Tree and stop by and see us at The Other Side Vintage in Tallahassee, Florida!
