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!

Supplies:
Brown Vinyl
Green Vinyl
Tan Vinyl
Blue Scrapbook Paper
Green Scrapbook Paper
Blue Marker
Green Marker
Mod Podge
Canvas
Silhoutte/Cricut/Scissors

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 name...so 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 MyVinylDirect.com to review two years ago. All opinions are completely my own and let me tell you...this Vinyl was awesome to work with.
