If you’re not ready to take your Christmas tree down yet, then don’t! Turn it into a Valentines Tree instead. This is an adorable way to get more life out of that tree and keep the magic alive.
This festive tree helps you celebrate love with a little more spunk. And there’s no need to take down that tree just yet. You’ll want to fill it with all your Valentine decorations (and it’s an excuse to add a few more, right?).
You’re going to love this crafty little idea. A Valentine’s tree is an awesome way to decorate for a day of love and keep some of the same decorations you already have. Who doesn’t love using decorations for multiple seasons?
Last year when my husband told me it was time to take down the Christmas tree, I decided there was a better way. Maybe the idea came as an act of defiance because I didn’t want to haul the tree into storage yet. Perhaps I really wanted to get more life out of my tree. But I think the real reason is much more simple: I wanted to decorate a tree in an entirely different way, just to see how I liked it.
And I love it!
Need more fun Valentine things to love? Throw a Galentines theme party and serve this Valentine’s charcuterie board or these Valentine’s mocktails. And is there a better way to celebrate a day filled with love than with Valentine’s Day chocolate dipped fruit gifts?
My Christmas tree has a lot of red decorations, so I was able to use them all in the new decor. I simply removed all the ornaments that didn’t work for a Valentine theme, the green ornaments and the Christmas-y stuff. Then I added some pink and white flourishes and a big sign that says “LOVE” and ta da! A Valentine’s tree!
My friends, this is so easy you’re gonna want to do it every year. If you have a white tree or flocked tree or even a pink tree, this idea works exceptionally well. Not only is it easy, but it’s so cute! I love this tree almost as much as I love planning new holiday traditions. I think, just maybe, you’re going to love redecorating your tree as well.
Why decorate for Valentine’s day with a tree?
- It’s an excuse to decorate for another holiday
- You get more life out of that gorgeous tree
- You don’t have haul your tree into storage yet
- The day of love deserves an abundant celebration
- Because I know you want to decorate again (and I support this endeavor)
Now, I know you’re dying for a few more specifics about how to decorate your tree for Valentine’s Day. So, I’m here to help.
How do I decorate a tree like this?
First off, you’re going to want to remove everything that isn’t red or pink or white. You want to keep those colors to fit with a valentine theme and white lights because they're so pretty.
Then evaluate the rest of your red decorations and see if any of them are too Christmas-y for the new holiday. Maybe it’s time to pull off any Santas or nativities or grinches, and the usual star tree topper, unless you feel like they still work! Then keep them. This is your tree, afterall.
Now it’s time to see what you can add. Take a step back and gaze at your tree. Do you need a smattering of pink hearts? Some white pom poms? A great big love sign (my favorite)? Honestly, as long as you’ve got Valentine colors in there, you can’t go wrong!
If you need more decorations you can pick up some great Valentine's Day decor at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and even Dollar Tree. They usually have some great ideas for other Valentine decor as well. You're guaranteed to find some red hearts, red roses, pink ornaments, white ornaments, white ribbon, and pretty much anything that calls to you for your own Valentine's Day tree.
