Memory Tree

Tags : 

A memory tree is a great way to remember your loved one. We created a memory tree for my Dad’s recent Memorial service. It gave family members and friends an opportunity to share something they remembered about my Dad. Reading the memory cards after the service was such a special gift to my family. You can also re-read the memories on special occasions or whenever you need something uplifting. This can be very healing for everyone involved.

MATERIALS:

Tree branch (or substitute a small Christmas or a table-top tree).

Gift tags, 3×5” cards, etc. (memory cards).

Single hole punch.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Place the tree branch inside the vase.

Use the moss to stabilize the tree branch inside the vase.

Cut the memorial cards into whatever shape best suits the size of the tree branch. Examples include: heart, square, rectangle, circle, star, dove, favorite sport (golf ball, soccer ball, etc.).

Leave enough space to write a few sentences on the memory card.

Punch a hole in the corner of each memory card.

Tie a ribbon through the hole in each memory card.

Ask family, friends, guests to write down their favorite memory on one of the cards.

Tie the memory card to the tree branch.

Memory cards can continue to be added to the tree at any time.
