Just plain weird or awesome? My mantle

I've seen so many V-day trees, and I wanted one too.
I cut 1/2 wide strips of paper into 6, 9 and 12 inches.
Then I folded each strip in the middle and threaded a very thin wire through the middle, and a bead on the bottom.
 Starting with the smallest strip, I glued the top to each strip to form a heart. Then I twisted the bottom of the wire around a pencil and the top wire into a heart shape.
 Here it is hanging out on my fireplace.

 I wanted to do some sort of banner, but then I thought that I would apply the vinyl directly to the mantle.  The girls in the house thought it was very cool and fun.  The boys (including my husband) thought it was just plain weird and that I should take it down immediately. Thoughts?

  5. Truth, love the heart shapes,bushier branches would perhaps take away what
    you are seeing as weird.

  7. I love it... but, I too, am a "girl"- perhaps you need to be "male" to think it's weird :)

  13. I love your tree with the hearts. The first time I put vinyl on the wall it almost killed my boyfriend, he thought it was permanent and would never come off!

  20. I'm here to testify about what DR. OYAGU did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 2 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Shayla Bosschart on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OYAGU on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. OYAGU prepared and sent me Healing Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after two weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. OYAGU assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. OYAGU for help via email} oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome whatsapp him through his mobile} +2348101755322. , Thanks once again DR. OYAGU for making me a happy woman again.
