My Take On The Family Tree

I've been on the hunt for easy meaningful mother's day gifts this year. 
This past craft of mine came to mind!

I wanted to share my take on the family tree. I made this almost two years ago and it is still going strong, which I love!

Blue Marker

Mod Podge

To start out. I cut 10-4x4 squares, and 20-2x2 squares. I arranged them on my canvas. Then I cut some hills for the bottom. I mod podged all of my pieces onto the canvas and let it dry. After it was all dry, I added in little details with markers. I "stitched" around the edges of the square with my blue marker and added green grass to my little green hills.

From there...the fun started! I chose a tree shape that I loved and went to work!
I placed my tree on my canvas then I proceeded to cut out leaves, a cute silhouette family and some silhouette heads for my leaves.
After everything was placed, I added details to my leaves. I went through and added the names of our family members etc. I had one extra leaf that needed a we've officially adopted Chuck Norris.
 It was such a quick project and I am thrilled with the result!

*I received this Craft Vinyl from to review two years ago. All opinions are completely my own and let me tell you...this Vinyl was awesome to work with.

  12. Regardless of whether the couple are sweetheart and sweetheart and this is they first Christmas they will celebrate together or on the off chance that they have hitched for the current year and this will be their first Christmas together as man and spouse, a lovely Christmas knick-knack will enable them to celebrate and give them a notice of this unique time.personalised family frames

  14. Overloading glitter is not so cool and that is why this nail art style is completely awesome. Take a chunky glitter polish and apply in one swipe over half of your manicured nail. This design looks sophisticated on the wearer and is interesting to create. Glitter for crafts
