Guest Posting: Hot Glue Hearts

The Valentine tree is up! It looks like a cross between Charlie Brown's Christmas tree and a Lisa Frank trapper keeper.

In other words, I'm thrilled with it.

It's covered with a menagerie of heart do-dahs, but mostly it's these nifty hot glue hearts I came up with a few weeks ago. They are crazy easy to make; hot glue + parchment paper + confetti. Or sprinkles. Or glitter. Or anything else your heart desires (pun intended).

Want to see how to make them?  Yeah you do. Hurry up and check it out.

 While you are over there, check out this mega rad DIY Statement necklace (confession: I might know the author on that one), or this timely article: 10 Things NOT to Get Her for Valentines Day. As someone whose previous Valentine gifts have included men's underwear and a one gallon drum of lighter fluid, I am especially appreciative of this critical information.

Happy Valentines!


  1. I love it fancypants!

  2. What an awesome tree.. Love the cross between Charlie Brown tree and lisa frank trapp keeper.. Those were the days

  3. First: CONGRATS on another Elizabeth Banks tutorial!!
    Second: How perfect is this?! I just bought a hot glue gun because I couldn't for the life of me find my other one. Although I am thinking I may utilize my old map stash...

  4. SPRINKLES!?!?! You're a flippin' genious.
