It's been AWHILE since I made a homemade gift! My BF and I don't really exchange gifts. We live the, "if I want something I buy it myself", mentality. So, holidays and birthdays are usually a time we cook favorite meals or simply say, "I love you. I appreciate you in my life." Or something equally gagable ;)
I don't know what hit me (cupid?), but I decided to make my BF a family tree for Valentine's Day. I came across this one below and used it as my inspiration.
I used to like this framed primitive country image, but I've decided to purge OR CHANGE things in my life that are no longer serving me. This adorable little house does not serve me; doesn't make me smile, I don't LOVE it. So, goodbye blah image....
I google searched "black and white tree clip art" to find this tree image...
The original Pinterest version looked like love letters. So, I made a copy of some old love notes and layered the tree on top and cut out both.
You can discard the original tree. You just want the love letter tree.
Run a sharpie around the edge to help highlight the tree once it's on your canvas.
Ok, funny story before I wrap this up....
When Tylan opened this on V-Day, the heart with MY name on it had fallen off. So, it looked like I had made him a family tree with only him and Tilly. Like, "Happy Valentine's Day! I'm leaving you." The confused look on his face was hilarious! BAHAHAHAHA! LOL! Poor guy...
I hope you enjoyed this Pinterest hack!
you'll love these too...
