Poofy Cheeks: Cupid’s Valentine Tree

Cupid’s Valentine Tree

Before Christmas I stocked up on Styrofoam trees from the Dollar Tree. I’m not sure if they were a seasonal item or not because they were in the floral/candle isle. With shop orders, our new baby, and holiday hustle and bustle I didn’t get to use all of them. I found them again the other day and decided to come up with fun ways to use them for a Valentine’s day vignette. The first tree got a washi tape makeover – Cupid style! (Similar to the Christmas washi tape tree I made.)

Cupid's Valentine Tree

To make your own you will need the following supplies:

  • Styrofoam tree
  • Washi Tape
  • Paper Straw
  • Red Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Exacto knife
  • Sharpened pencil

How to make your own:

The first thing you need to do is take a sharpened pencil (I would use one sharper than I did!) and gently push it through the tree. Remove the pencil and then stick a paper straw through the hole you made. Start covering your tree in washi tape strips. Use scissors to cute out the shapes for your arrow and attach them. I used washi to attach the arrow and cut a slit in the straw with my exacto to slide the ‘feather’ part of the arrow into. To finish it off I added a red button to the top of the tree since it has that odd flat top.

I have a few more things to finish before I show you the final vignette but I can’t wait to share it!
