diy project : memory tree

I am excited to share how the memory tree for my parents 50th anniversary party turned out! I worked on the tree this morning with my talented sister-in-law and had a great time. It was actually pretty simple to make once we figured everything out. I think it turned out beautifully and am very happy with it. 

For those who are interested, here is the breakdown... the pail was a downeast clearance center find that was spray painted gold. The branches were cut from my mother-in-laws backyard and inserted in dirt/soil topped with rock and moss. The tags were cut with a cricut machine and hung with sheer green ribbon. Overall the project cost around $12 to make.
