Sweet Valentines Carved In Tree Bark

A few years ago, my daughter brought home a piece of bark she had carved a design in. I liked the idea so much that I thought wouldn’t it be cool to carve a valentine out of a piece of bark. I like the way it makes you think of the sweet affections of youth carved in trees. However, I don’t really like the idea of scarring a tree.  They can be used in a variety of ways from napkin rings to Valentine ornaments.

You could also carve things like: T.B. + N.R., U R Sweet, Hot stuff, or Kiss me. I used a metal barbecue skewer to scratch out the letters. Bark pieces can be found on the ground around some pine trees or possibly around a log pile.

Napkin rings are made from a slice of a toilet paper roll with the bark Valentine glued on.

    This is wonderful! I’m going to use driftwood that my family and I find all over Maui! I also shared this on my CafeMom group page with a link back here. Thank you so much! ~ Yolanda ~

    If you would like to share some pictures or your driftwood Valentines, I’d love to post them.
    Great idea!
