Valentine Tree

Here's what all those velvet hearts were being made for! A Valentine themed wool feather tree!

Thanks to Joanne for the gorgeous neutral colored wool and thanks to the Cinnamon Stick for the gorgeous red cotton velvet!

The hangers for the hearts are a creamy pearl cotton and I added a simple mother of pearl button to each for an extra touch. The tree is firmly anchored in the bucket with the help of some paper clay. It could use some moss to cover the clay, but I can't seem to find mine? Anyways, I think this little Valentine tree brings some happy to the grey days of Winter...

I've started on a Valentine needle punch this afternoon... hoping to share it with you soon...

Until next time... stay healthy and keep on smiling!


  1. OH! Be still my heart! LOVE this Sharon! It also reminds me I still have the tree kit from JoAnne to make one of these days! I have it in the white too!
    I'm crazy for yours!!
