I'm always looking for ways to craft using what I have. This paper heart tree allowed me to use my heart paper punches (Fiskars X-Large Squeeze Punch, That's Amore). I have a cutting machine now but it was sort of fun to use these again. All you need is that and paper, some glue, some string/twine and some tree branches. I used orange tree branches if it matters. You don't really need paint, I saw some bare branch trees so it just depends on your style preference. I did paint mine white like the pictures and video.

To accompany my "tree" I made a small bunting with solid and gingham cotton, vintage style lace appliques and embroidered rose patches. I had this XOXO block sign and I bought this little delivery truck off Mercari (I think it's originally from Target). I have my lantern sitting atop a wide candle holder to give it height. The rose topiary I made by gluing satin roses (leftover from a bouquet) to a red Christmas ornament. I was feeling festive #masamorporfavor
