Over the last few years we have moved further and further from family. We miss them a lot and I wanted a way for us to remember them. One Christmas I decided to make family ornaments to hang on a smaller tree. It became our “Family Tree”. After Christmas, I still wanted to keep them up so I added them to a “Family and Friends” display I already had in our entry way. I have the kids school pictures hung above and underneath, I have a metal card holder which we use to display the Christmas cards we receive. After Christmas, I take the pictures of family and friends from these cards and keep them up. The family ornaments now hang below this until the next Christmas when they go back on our little tree. Have I got you completely confused yet?
I used simple ornament hangers to hang them up with. I started with my family in the middle and then branched out. My husbands family is off the the left and my family is off to the right.
