Over the holidays we made these festive Paper Tree Ornaments and we thought they would make cute Valentine Paper Trees as well! 

These are so easy to make with our free printable template! All you need is the same template as our paper trees but you’ll need to punch out a little heart to add on top instead of the star included. 

Another twist is that these trees are standing up instead of hung like ornaments, so we used a straw underneath to make them stand upright. 

You can scroll down to watch the video to see how we did this part. You can also watch our Paper Tree Ornament video as well to see how to make tree ornaments instead!

These sweet paper trees make an adorable Valentine craft, but also pretty decor! They would make adorable Valentine table party decorations!


  • Colorful cardstock or patterned papers in red, white and pink colors.
  • Large needle or something sharp to poke through the center of the trees
  • Straws 
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Free Printable tree template (download over at our paper tree ornament post, note that printable includes a star topper so you’ll need a heart punch as well if you want to top with a heart instead of a star, like we did here).


Step 1. Print out and cut out the free printable template. There are 3 sizes for the circle. 

Step 2. Start folding the circle in half and then keep going in half over and over again. The lines are to show you there are 16 lines. 

Step 3. Once you have folded all 3 size circles, poke a hole on top with your needle or similar sharp object and thread a straw through to hold all 3 circles together. Leave a tip at the top for the heart. Cut off excess straw at bottom, leaving enough to make the tree stand. 

Step 4. Punch a heart on paper and glue to the top of the straw.
