Last night LM worked on Valentine's for her classmates while I worked on this little Valentine 'tree'. I mentioned the project here, knowing my tree would be completely different from the original. And it definitely is. When I spotted the inspiration piece I thought the tree was made out of clothes pins (yeah, I don't know what I was thinking, but it was before I got my new glasses) and I had it stuck in my head that I would make a tree with clothes pins. So that's what I did!
I had the red glitter & pink clothes pins on hand. The red and white ones are regular old clothes pins to which I mod podged scrapbook paper. The hearts are made from some scrapbook paper scraps. I attached the clothes pins to a lolly pop stick (the kind you buy to make your own pops). I bought nothing new for this project - you have to love that - well at least I do!
I think the thing I love the most about this project is that after the holiday I can disassemble the entire thing so I don't have to store it throughout the year. I like that because I do like to make new things each year and if I don't want to use this next year I don't have to feel guilty about it. If I do want to use it I'll recreate it - either exactly the way it is or change it up.
For the next week or so though, I will really enjoy this.
I'm linking up to the Inspiration Party at the Craftberry Bush, Show & Tell Friday at My Romantic Home and Frugal Friday at the Shabby Nest.
