But with all the colors around for Valentine's day I couldn't leave my "tree" out of the fun!
Using the same technique as I did for the window decoration in Friday's post I made a few extra hearts - remembering to cut them on a fold this time! what a time saver - and applied the same kind of wash with my Tomato Spice paint.
While those dried I cut the edge of the newspaper (the part that's blank) into thin strips about four inches long. Using a gluestick I glued their ends together forming a loop.
Then it's just a matter of applying glue to the interior of the heart and threading the end of your loop through the opening and closing it all up. Make sure you press down directly over where the loop is under the heart paper. I went to pick up a few and the loop came right out!
Now my Charlie Brown tree has joined us in the Valentine's festivity.
Easy peasy! (and don't forget free!)
