Christmas is well over, and it’s already February! This means that Valentine’s Day is almost here, and it was time to redecorate the apartment for another holiday. Now, either this is my most ingenious way to fill up empty space and reuse the Christmas tree year-round, OR this is my laziness at it’s finest. You decide.
Instead of breaking down the Christmas tree, getting frustrated while trying to stuff the pieces back in the box, and leaving the house plain and non-festive, I decided to try and make it work as a festive piece in my living room for each holiday.
The rose buds featured on the tree are actually molded, scented soap petals I got from The Dollar Tree, and the double hearts are a quick and easy Pinterest project with construction paper. I kept the red ornaments up and took the rest down, replacing them with pink, Valentine-related items. What do you think?
I decided to spruce up the dining table while I was at it, adding some pink and white artificial flowers to a red vase, and showcasing some glittery hearts on sticks I got from The Dollar Tree. Don’t they look like cake pops?!
Overall, I’m happy with the way this mini project turned out. I may not have a Valentine this year, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy making the apartment a little girly during the holiday with a festive Valentine Tree! PS: Now accepting applications to be my Valentine… if only! 😉
