Love Tree

Love Tree - Perfect idea to use in February up to Easter. Easy, memorable and affordable!

In an effort to avoid having to store (or rebuild every year) my Thanksgiving Tree, I am trying to find ways to re-theme it throughout the year.

In November you could find this on our table: Valentine's Tree @ From this Kitchen Table Then at Christmas it looked like this:

Love Tree - Perfect idea to use in February up to Easter

The past month it’s been on our table bare and I decided it was time to revitalize the tree.

Now, it’s become a love tree. The perfect theme for February and leading up to Easter.

If you already have a tree, putting this together will be simple – skip ahead to step 2.

I’m not a crafty person. My crafts have to be affordable and fairly easy otherwise they won’t happen. This one meets both of those requirements.

Love Tree

1. Find sticks of varying sizes and arrange them into a vase. Use small rocks or glass pebbles to weight down the vase or else it will topple over on you.

2. Cut hearts of varying sizes out of different color construction paper or card stock. I used pinks and red, but blues, greens, and grays would work too.

I have a pdf of 3 different size hearts you can use if you’d like.

3. Hang the hearts. I used a needle and white thread. On the large hearts, it would look pretty to use a hole punch and hang it up with ribbon.

4. Between now and when you use your tree for Easter, take time each day to write something/one you love, someone that loves you, a way you showed love or were shown love, or a scripture verse about love on the hearts. Toddlers could color on the hearts or dictate to you.

What a great time and memorable way to focus on God’s love for us and the way that He and others show love for us.

    Oh no – you’re like the lady who has a Christmas tree all year long and just changes the ornaments. 😉 LOL I’m just kidding – unless you do have that tree! That’s a great way to foster appreciation during different seasons with your whole family. We did one a day in November and it became a challenge as the month went on – it’s a good thing! 🙂

      lol! That would be really funny. I don’t know if I could handle a big tree taking up space all year round. 🙂 You are right, it does get hard to come up with things. I guess it’s a good way to stretch. Kenna would come up with the most random things for the Thanksgiving Tree and repeated all of the every night.

      I might have to! My mom said they did an Easter Tree when she was little. After Easter it might end up getting retired until Thanksgiving unless something really creative comes to mind.
