My Brothers and I have always been creative in different ways. When it came to presents, we would try to make them as we all felt they meant more. So for my Mum’s birthday recently, we made a family tree on a canvas made out of my Brother’s, Sister-in-law’s, Mannie’s and my hand print. We drew the trunk and after printing our hands around it, we wrote our names in small on one of the fingers so you could identify whose hand is whose. It was such a nice way to show how the family has grown and represents the roots we have together.
If you try this, make sure you really cover your hand and press it straight down and evenly onto the canvas to get a good print. Below the Tree, we wrote the family name … unfortunately I didn’t get a photo with the final version but hopefully this gives you the idea. Enjoy!
