Introduction: Caring Tree Overview

About: I am an artist who enjoys many things. I enjoy paper crafting custom invitations for weddings, parties and special events. I enjoy making customized costumes and props for theater shows and Halloween. I enjoy …
The Caring Tree is something I created to display all the cards I make. These were previously stored in a drawer with no intentions of brightening someones day. So Sad I know... especially if you were a card. LOL.

Here is a video overview of the project completed.

Step 1: Step 1

Choose a branch off of a tree. Find a vase and secure it in the vase using sand and expandable spray foam.

Step 2: Step 2 - How to Hang the Cards

I purchased mini office clips to hang my cards from. The silver levers come off if you pinch them towards the center  from the sides. This makes it easy to place around any of the smaller branches. After on the branch, firmly pinch them again to reattach the black part.

Step 3: Step 3 - Adding the Leaves and Flowers

With your glue gun take a large amount of flowers and leaves (for this project I used 500 flowers and 285 leaves) Attach them in small clusters all over the branches in a natural arrangement.

Step 4: Step 4 - Adding Life

Add any birds or butterflies to your project if you desire.
