Craft 52 week 3: Glittered Valentine Tree

Craft 52 week 3:
Glittered Valentine Tree


I made these hearts and cupids a few years back
and wanted to change up things this year, so I made this tree.

Here's my how to on the Glittered Hearts


I used my cordless drill to make tiny holes in all the wood pieces. I love using my drill. After I drilled all my holes, I took fishing line and tied loops around the pieces to act as hooks to attach the wood pieces to the tree branches.

After:
I found out about the awesome photo editing web site Picnik, over on Three men and a Lady.
Thanks Michelle, on the heads up! One of the things I want to work on with my blog is creating better photos, now I have the tools to help me. I'm really excited to play around with all the amazing tools available at Picnik! By the way, most of the tools are free!

P.S. Your Valentine Tree was one of my favorites when I first started looking at the projects. Years ago I used to make a tree for every holiday but my Valentine's never looked like this. It usually had gumdrops all over :o)
