What is Family Tree of Memories
As we start a new beginning this year, we're looking forward to making lots of beautiful moments with our family this year.
Instead of just letting those beautiful moments pass by, you can transform all of those beautiful moments into a family tree of memories wall art that you can enjoy the whole year.
Whenever a good thing happened, you can print out what you feel or think in words or photos on a leave-shaped paper that you stick to your tree wall art. It can also make a great family art craft idea that can develop stronger bonds by growing the tree together.
As the tree grows, you can see what beautiful things happen to you and your loved ones. Besides making a beautiful wall art, the tree of memories can be a reminder to you how beautiful the life you have now.
