Dollar Tree Valentine tree 2011

These little branchy trees are in with the new spring stuff, assorted pastel colors including PINK.  Now they don’t look like THIS on the shelf.  I’ve ‘fluffed’ all the branches out here already.  In the store it will just look like one tall stick in a pot, branches all clumped together.  But as you can see, they fluff out quite nicely.

I also bought this bag of glittered hearts ‘table scatter’ and a deck of heart playing cards.

I decided to CURL my branches, by wrapping them around a pencil.  For my topper, I glued two of the playing cards together and placed it over the top branch.

Then I used my hot glue gun to glue the pink and white hearts to the ends of the curled branches.  The stem was a bit ‘gangly’ so I tied on three pink bows.

Total cost of everything used was just a bit over a dollar!  I’ve still got lots of the heart playing cards left and the red scatter hearts to play with!

Darling little centerpiece or desk tree for Valentines day.  AND you could make some really cute BABY SHOWER trees using these and the assorted little baby shower trinkets from DT!

AND I’m thinking I should buy a bunch of these trees and stash them away for next WINTER.  Paint the base turquoise and add glitter snowflakes to the branches.

And of course you can use them for their INTENDED purpose and add the little Easter egg ornies to them for an Easter centerpiece!
