Memories are what life is about. Pictures are a great way to save your family memories and so is a family diary. A fun idea that will help you save family memories and create a creative wall hanging is to make a family memory wall hanging.
To make a family memory wall hanging you need a flat round, square or oval basket. The basket should fit on a wall nicely so it should have sides that are less then three inches high. The bottom of the basket will be against the wall and the open inside basket should be open to the room so you can fill that basket and it will hang on the wall.
The things you put in the basket are things that are collected as your family makes adventures. When your family goes to the beach there may be a shell that is found by a family member. That shell can go into the basket.
If your family finds an unusual plant that will look nice when it dries like a twig of sage that can go into the basket.
If the family is together on a camping trip and someone finds a unique stick that can go in the basket.
A dried flower can go in the basket or a tiny bird’s nest will look nice in the basket. A bunch of hair clippings from a child’s haircut can be put in the basket or some fur from a family pet.
Anytime the family is together and something is found that will help everyone remember the day it can go into the basket that hangs on the family’s wall.
A basket is a good item to put mementos in since you can polk small pieces in the basket and it will hold in place. A basket is also light weight and can easily be hung up on the wall.
When you find things to put in the basket try to pick small lightweight items. Small items will allow room for more items to be put in the basket. Light weight items will help keep the basket light in weight.
A memory basket can be for an individual, a family or a couple. Grandparents may want a memory basket for all the little things that the grand kid’s give them. A memory basket can help you remember fun times and it can look nice as a wall decoration in your home.
