Hearts that Grow on Trees

We all know that money doesn’t grow on trees, however, no one ever said that Hearts couldn’t!  If they did, this Heart Tree is sure to prove them wrong…  Each tree branch features Small Foam Heart Shapes and Buttons.  We used Glue Dots to secure the shapes & buttons, which means there is no drying time or messy glue needed.  Add a ceramic magnet (with a Glue Dot as well) to the back and you’ll end up with a great Heart Magnet to keep or give away.  However you decide to use these, they are sure to be a hit with kids of all ages at your next craft event!
