Here's a tutorial for my little $1 Heart Tree:
Step 1: Grab some thin branches from the nearest tree.
Step 2: Make or buy some little hearts (mine were from Dollar Tree--Amazon sells them here). Or you can use this craft punch.
Step 3: Hot glue hearts to branches. (Need a glue gun? This $6 one from Amazon will do).
Step 4: Enjoy the fact that you just made the cheapest, easiest Valentine's Day craft ever.
And those are all my little secrets for Valentine's Day decorating on the cheap!
