How to Love Valentine Ornaments

Decorating a Christmas tree in a Valentine’s Day theme can be a fun thing to do for children and adults alike. You don’t necessarily need to buy special ornaments in order to do this. Some of your regular Christmas ornaments will double nicely as Valentine decorations, and others can be made from materials that are easy to find.Look for solid pink or red glass ornaments for your Valentine’s Day tree.  Try to stick with these colors as much as possible during your decorating. If you can find or make crocheted lace covers for these glass ornaments, this can help give them a more romantic feel.

You can also hang children’s valentines on your tree. Punch a small hole in the top of each one with a hole punch and then tie red or pink ribbon to it. If you’re feeling really creative, you can make your own valentines out of construction paper or cardstock and then hang them in the same manner.

Paper or plastic doilies could be cut in the shape of a heart and then hung on a Christmas tree. You could also use scraps of lace to tie bows on the ends of some of the branches. A white lace curtain works well as a tree skirt whenever lace items are also used on the tree.

For a tree topper, why not use a grapevine wreath in the shape of a heart. You can decorate this in any number of ways by weaving lights or red tinsel through it. Smaller grapevine hearts could be painted red or could have beads or small flowers glued to them.
