This heart and hand tree is an old favourite of ours and is great for pre-schoolers.

And I just adore this decoration for above the bed. I think this could look amazing above a “grown ups” bed too!

We have loads more old favourite ideas to show your love here.

However you choose to show and celebrate your love, you enjoy it.

fab christmas idea #19

This is SUCH a cool idea, especially for those who are a bit short on space.  Add any little treasures you like to the wall in the shape of a tree, then pop your pressies at the bottom!  Merry, merry.

craft express – peg christmas trees

Look what we made today …

Using this stuff …

All you will need are some old boxes (any cardboard would do), a few little gems from the craft box (think pom poms, glitter, confetti, star stickers) and some wooden pegs.

Simply cut out* cardboard triangles (you can get a bit fancy here if you like), colour in or paint, glue on decorations of your choice and clip wooden peg to the bottom.

* Obviously littler ones would need assistance with cutting out but the rest is manageable for any age from toddlers to grown ups.

This little idea is so simple yet beautiful.

Make your own ‘Hearts and Hand Tree’ using your little one’s hand to make the tree trunk – you can trace around it or use paint and stamp their hand print on.

Add your own love heart leaves by using a heart shaped paper punch (if you have one) or help your little one cut them out.  Use an old magazine, old gift wrapping paper, newspaper  -whatever you like!

I think this one would be gorgeous framed.  In no time at all you are sure to be marveling at how little their hands were.

Enjoy!
