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.

How to Make Paper Heart Trees

  1. Gather the tools and materials above. Then download the pattern at the end of this post.
  2. Cut out your paper hearts using your scissors or cutting machine. Then, fold all hearts in half.
  3. Use your curling tool to gently curl the bottom of all the hearts outward.
  4. Add a dab of glue to the top inside center of folded heart; start gluing at base of cone and overlap slightly.
