Not ready to take down your Christmas tree? Turn it into a Valentine’s Day tree! It’s a fun and festive way to get more use out of your Christmas tree.
When I was a kid my grandparents had a huge Christmas tree. It took forever to put up and take down so one year they left it up most of the year and my grandma redecorated it several times for different holidays.
It was a lot of fun to see what new things she had done with it each time I went over there. I’m pretty sure I got my love of going all out with decorating for the holidays from her.
This year I wasn’t ready to put up my Christmas trees so I turned two of them into Valentine’s Day trees. Just like Christmas tree decorations, you can go very simple or all out.
This year since it’s my first year doing this I went really simple. I will gradually buy more items to add to the trees as I find things I like.
For my main Christmas tree that is in our living room, I left my red mercury glass ornaments on the tree, added some silver heart ornaments, and it’s a color-changing tree so I put it on red and white. The tree skirt I use is white so I just left that on it as well.
I can’t wait to add more to the trees. When I was taking down my Christmas decorations this year it was far less sad because I knew I’d be decorating for Valentine’s Day and I was excited to see all of the new decorations.
I had no idea when I decided to have Valentine’s Day trees that it would become a trend this year. I’ve seen several other fun examples and wanted to share those ideas with you as well so you can get some inspiration for your own Valentine’s Day tree.
Valentine’s Day Tree Supplies
I recommend using a Christmas tree you already have but if you need one or want something different checkout Balsam Hill. They always have some great deals on trees after the holidays.
