These paper heart trees make such pretty home décor! We crafted them for you as a Valentine’s Day DIY décor idea. But really you could keep these trees out all year long if you wanted to. These colors are neutral enough to fit in well with a variety of home décor styles. And since they’re metallics, you can use them as accents to brighten up a room and pull everything together for a more polished look.

The colors we used for these paper heart trees are linked below. But if you want to use more of a “Valentine’s Day” color, go for it! This is a fun project for kids, too, so you could always make some yourself and then have your kiddos make their own.

Let Love Grow

We created three different sizes of paper heart trees. For the small tree, we used three sheets of paper and had some left over. For the medium tree, we used four sheets of paper. And for the large tree, we used seven sheets of paper. We also used two shades of pink for that one—the pink quartz and rose gold, just for fun!

Another DIY décor project you might like is our geometric heart garland. We used some of the same colors for that one, so it would look great with these paper heart trees! If you create either one of these projects–or both—we’d love to see them. Make sure to share pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
