Today we have a guest post by Lori from Bleak2Unique!! She's going to share a wonderful tutorial on how to decorate a Valentine Tree...for cheap!! Gotta love affordable projects, especially ones as pretty as this!!
Hi Ya'll! I'm so excited to be here at Lisa's Craft Blog. To tell you the truth, this is my first guest post, and I'm a little nervous, but what the heck...I'm among friends, right?
So, what can I tell you about me...I'm Lori from over at Bleak2Unique where I blog about life, trash to treasure projects, and my adventures as a DIY addict. I'm a southern girl living on the west coast, a new blogger, and I absolutely love meeting new blog friends, so come on by anytime...
To keep us all in the spirit for Lisa's "A Love-Filled Valentine's Event" I am going to share our new holiday tradition...A Valentine's tree.
We are big Christmas decorators, so we have 5 trees (should I really admit that!), and one of the small trees just happens to be pink...perfect for Valentine's Day. After climbing in the attic and retrieving the pink tree (the very last box, in the back, past the spider webs...ugh), I headed to my favorite craft store....the Dollar Tree! Here is what I got...
Valentine's garland and heart boxes...so cute
Foam heats and "sweetheart" boxes
I brought my goodies home, put the tree together, fluffed the branches and got out some of my crystals...these are leftovers from lamp and chandelier makeovers like my Revamp the Lamps tutorial...I love lamps!
Gotta love some bling!
Teardrops make me happy
I put it all together and here is what I got....A Valentine's tree!
Love is in the air
We have lights!
I love it so much...maybe next year I'll drag down the 8 foot white tree...probably not! This only took about an hour, so get inspired and put up your own tree....and have a Happy Valentine's Day.
