After creating a picture backdrop
using gold tissue paper at New Year’s Eve, I’ve been wanting to recreate the same layered effect elsewhere in my home. Using items that cost me a total of $2 I was able to craft this adorable Valentine’s Day Fabric Tree
I sure hope you all are scouring the Target Dollar section, like I do. I can not tell you how many great finds I score there! On one of my recent stops, I found these $1 waffle kitchen towels.
I had already had this tree form and gave it a quick coat in white spray paint.
I cut the waffle towel into 1″ strips to cover the tree form. Then, I made numerous slices into each strip. I didn’t want the tree to have a crisp look, so after cutting the slices I roughed up the fabric by pulling and tugging at it.
Using a hot.glue gun I started wrapping the tree form with my towel strips. Be sure to start at the bottom and work your way up on your form.
During New Year’s Eve, I had bought a package of silver paper letters from Target’s Dollar section and they came into play on this project.
I used a wooden skewer and painted it with my gold foil paint pen. Then I hot.glued the letters onto the skewer.
I covered a styrofoam circle with fabric as the base for my LOVE and the tree.
