A memory tree is a beautiful way to bring a bit of nature into your home while also having the opportunity to reflect on wonderful memories of your loved one. A memory tree can also be used at a funeral or memorial service. Place undecorated tree on a table with tags and pens. Invite guests to jot down a memory and hang it on the tree. This is also an excellent project for children.
Paint (acrylic or spray) (optional)
A container such as a pot, bowl, or vase (your container should be large enough so it holds enough stones to securely hold the branch)
Tags (we used a heart craft punch but you can also purchase pre-punched hearts or ready-made tags)
String or glue
Pens or markers
Prune the branch to the desired size and look.
Paint the branch (or leave as-is for a natural look).
Fill the container with stones and anchor the branch in the stones - or place the branches in a vase.
Write one memory on each tag and tie or glue them to the branches. Add tags as you recall additional memories.
