House of Pink





Remember these trees I made for Christmas



Well, after seeing all the conversations hearts candy turned into decor..


Picture from Someday Crafts

I decided to put these projects together and make a "conversation heart tree". I seriously LOVE how it turned out.



Supplies:
Styrofoam Cone: Hobby Lobby
Candle stick bottom: Hobby Lobby
Finials: Hobby Lobby
Pink Ribbon
Large package of Conversation Hearts
Hot Glue

hot glue the candle stick bottom to the bottom of the Styrofoam tree
start at the bottom and hot glue the conversation hearts right unto the Styrofoam until you get to the top
there may be a small gap in between the top and where you push in the finial in the top but once you tie the ribbon around it won't show
I wrapped my ribbon around twice before I tied the bow
If you tie your bow backward it will lay perfectly

And now your done!
You have a cute Valentines Tree!
Happy Valentine's Day Dear Friends

Very nice Valentines tree. Those are my favorite candy - so - it would be real hard for me not to eat too many while I was making one. LOL

Hugs,
