Practical Scrapper Patty here with a neat family heirloom project to share with you today!
About a year ago, I was lucky enough to stumble across an old print tray at a yard sale. I had a vision for my creation and started to collect little items to fill those tiny little shelves. After much time collecting and finding the perfect pieces for my project, I finally felt ready to CREATE! I wanted to create a tribute to my family that could be passed along and added to and changed as we grew and changed. I chose paper, ribbon, fabric, flowers and little items that really spoke to me about our family. I considered using paint, but decided that was a little too permanent for my vision.
You may notice the repetition of the numbers 2, 4 and 6. My husband and I are the 2. Our girls are the 4 and the 6 is all of us together.
There are 6 keys displayed, one for each member of our family.
There is metal and burlap.
A heart for each family member, and a jar full of love too!
The name of each member of our family is also displayed.
The clocks represent each of our birthdays.
There are a few empty spots to add things later and things can be added and changed as our family changes.
I love having an artistic representation of what our family means. Why not find a way to create an heirloom for your family to cherish for generations to come!
