This paper heart tree canvas is a perfect addition to the two other canvas art pieces I have made: the butterfly and flower girl. It’s really fun to play around with different shapes and designs and this time I wanted to embrace love, kindness, and family. This vinyl tree with hearts SVG is lovely and it is surprisingly easy to make and decorate with paper hearts, too!

Introduction:

I love projects that look very complicated to make, but are actually quite simple. This is one of those projects. It is so much easier than it looks. I am frequently asked if a project is good for beginners, and without a doubt, this tree with hearts SVG is a wonderful place to start for any level of crafter. If you haven’t used vinyl, this is a great project to begin with because you don’t need a lot of supplies! What makes it even better is that you can customize it to fit your decor or your mood.

All you need is one or two sheets of permanent vinyl for the tree with hearts SVG design, along with a way to transfer it (like a sheet of transfer tape). I designed the tree with hearts SVG so it can be cut on a cutting machine like a Cricut Maker or Explore … I even made a special version that is sized to be cut on the Cricut Joy!

In addition to that, you’ll want about four sheets of cardstock in various shades of red and pink — I’m using several sheets of paper from a solid core pack I had on hand. Solid core cardstock means the paper is the same color throughout the paper — front, back, and inside — and is not white on the edges. Cricut, Michaels, and Amazon all have packs of solid core cardstock that you can use for this project, or even better, you can use what you already own! This is a great way to use some of your supplies. I cut out the paper hearts using my Cricut cutting machine, but you could also use scissors of course (though it might take a while).
