felt heart Valentine trees

Warning you guys: we are slowly getting obsessed with felt trees.  After displaying Kelli’s felt scalloped Christmas trees last season, we turned the heart upside down to copy the look but it puts a sweet twist on the original project. Love that it didn’t take much thought but turned out oh-so-cute!  Introducing our felt heart Valentine trees!

Supplies to make felt heart Valentine trees | Lolly Jane

Clearly you can see we swapped our original idea of curtain rod finials for sweet $1 store velvet hearts to use as a topper.  Cuuuuuter, right? ;)  Be creative and use something fun to polish off this cute project!  Oh, and we added painted $1 store candlesticks to display these lovely little trees on.  Cheap cheap!

Steps 1-2:  We originally cut out a heart in card stock to use as a template to trace but realized a) it’s time consuming and b) pencil doesn’t write well on felt sooooo we scrapped that idea and just cut 2″ strips of felt, folded them in half and cut out a heart shape free hand.  You can see the hearts are about the same size-ish but all different.  Just like us!  LOL  Step 3: Pin heart upside down onto cone, starting from the bottom up to create a layering effect.  You can see a similar tutorial for our Christmas felt trees here.  Step 4: Continue pinning onto cone until all gaps of cone are covered.  Easy peasy!

Take a looksie at them displayed in Kelli’s foyer paired with her doily heart bakers twine bunting and Valentine’s Day glitter sign.  Adorbs!

Wish you could spy the glittery detail in the white hearts- they are so pretty, especially paired with the pink velvet heart.  Swoon!  Gotta love our local dollar store that sells these cute hearts on sticks.  Simply remove the stick for insta-Valentine filler!

    I did this I got everything from the dollar store. I got sparkling hearts already cut out. And the big hearts on top too, there were 4 in that package. I didn’t get to make all of them, I left my stuff at the beach house after a accident & had to leave. I will take a picture of the 2nd one. I did give one to a friend that has a shop there. Thanks alot beth

    What kind if paint did you use on the candle stick holders?? The ones I purchased at the dollar store are glass and I’m not sure what kind of paint is best to use!! Can’t wait to get started on these!

      Good old fashioned spray paint, works like a charm! The cheap can will work great (;
