I originally envisioned a beautiful white vase with tree branches and hearts hanging off of it, but then I found a wooden tree at one of my local crafty stores. At first I painted it white, but my white paint stinks and I hated how it looked so then I went with pink. I tried to go with a gradient, but the paint didn't go on as well as I would have liked, and I wish I had just gone with watercolor to start with. That's what I did with the hearts. Maybe I'll find that vase and branches next year, but for this year this will have to do.
