Earlier this week, I mentioned that we are trying to make the house magical at every holiday. I found a heart tree that I fell in love with even though it's technically made to hold valentines for school age children.
I'm a big DIY fan so I decided to make some ornaments for our tree using materials we already had in our craft drawer. After we filled the tree with hearts, I found the cutest little paper flag garland at Target and added that as well. Lucy is thrilled with it and loves moving the ornaments around. She has even found many creative spots around the house to hang them!
The ornaments were super easy to make and would be a fun project for the littles to make themselves. Plus, it's great fine motor practice, especially if you have a pair of safety scissors for toddlers.
All you need to make these pretty little heart ornaments are: thread (we used pink), foam heart stickers (we used glittery ones from amazon), and a pair of scissors!
First take the sticker off the back of one of your heart stickers. Then cut a thread long enough to hang it.
Take the back off the matching heart and stick it on top of the thread. Easy Peasy as Lucy likes to say!
Our tree is from Pottery Barn Kids (currently unavailable) but you can find white trees on amazon or simply spray paint some sticks white and put them in a vase!
The tree is adorable, the ornaments were simple to make, and it would look pretty as a centerpiece, on a child's dresser or as a focal point in a play room. I just had to share!
