One Dollar Wednesday... Valentine's Day Tree

I found this fun Valentine vase at the Dollar Store a couple weeks ago...

As soon as I saw it, I knew just what to do with it!



I gathered some old branches from my yard.



and sent them out to Spray Paint Place for a quick coat of white.



I arranged them in the little vase,



and cut out oodles of scrapbook paper hearts.



I used my large hearts as "ornaments" and sandwiched a piece of ribbon (also from the dollar store)between the layers.



I added my small hearts at random spots on the branches using my glue gun to attach them.



This is what I ended up with...(CLICK ON PICTURE TO ENLARGE)



I LOVE the whimsy it adds to this corner! (CLICK ON PICTURE TO ENLARGE)
