Valentine Craft

I don't think it's much of an exaggeration to say that not much has been going on lately. The winter blaaaahhs. So we decided to make a Valentine tree to cheer us up. And it worked!

We actually had to do some searching find a great branch. Tied on some fabric scraps, and cut out some foamie hearts with ribbon and voila!
For some reason this craft felt really creative. There's not much to it and it only cost a couple of dollars (we made one for inside and one sits outside the front door), but it really feels fun and cheery. I think it could be fun to tie messages to it as well...oh the possibilities...!
The Bug was carrying it around earlier today, and he told me he loved it. Who can beat that?

Great idea! You're so creative and what a wonderful way to lighten the funk!
I think we may have to adapt it to our home too...is that okay?

Of course!
And I think this general idea could be applied to various 'holidays'...I see little Easter trees in our future =)
