Valentine's Tree Craft Project Inspired By Southern Living Magazine

Aren't these Valentine cookies adorable and yummy looking?
Too bad I won't be baking any!  You see, I'm not much of a baker, so I may not get to baking some of these.
But my daughters loved the images of them as well as I did.  So we decided to make something like these that we could save for a much longer time than if they were real cookies.
We decided to use felt to make the cookies.
We tied them with ribbon and made a Valentine's tree.
Here it is:



We set out around the neighborhood to find the perfect fallen branch to spray paint white for our tree.
We found the pink bucket at Joann's craft store.  I stuffed the inside of the base with the leftover felt scraps.
I'll be honest.  We did the felt cookies for about 2 hours one night, continued the next morning for another hour, and then finally got it all together on day three.
Yep!  Three day project.  But so worth it.

Skip to a different project.  While I'm at the posting thing:
I must add that I was able to applique a shirt for my 8 yr. old daughter that suited her tastes for Valentine's.
