Family Tree Calendar Every family is unique, and with this simple crafts project, you can honor your personal genealogy with endless creative possibilities. Begin by downloading the Family Tree Branch Template and Family Tree Leaf Template to construct your tree, then let your artistic side take the reins to craft a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
*Using a variety of papers will lend texture and interest to your Family Tree Calendar. Because you will construct individual leaves for each member of your family, try pulling from an assortment of paper designs and colors when printing your leaf templates. Find inspiration in your home décor palette, or consider it a way to reflect your loved ones’ personalities.
Tip: Consider each leaf as a different person, with the five petals showcasing different pieces of information. For example, dedicate a leaf to your mother, writing her first name, last name, birth month, birth date and birth year on the five petals. Your family tree is also perfect for anniversaries, upcoming weddings and other special events. Try honoring a betrothed couple by writing the bride’s full name, the groom’s full name, the location of the wedding ceremony, the date of the ceremony and the time on individual petals.
Tip: When it comes to designing your Family Tree Calendar, there really are no rules. Consider writing each quadrant’s corresponding months directly on the calendar for added organization. Or, try eliminating the monthly format and instead artfully scatter your leaves throughout the piece for a whimsical look.
This year, keep track of every important moment with a handmade Family Tree Calendar, perfect for display in any room of your home or as a thoughtful homemade gift. Keep it in mind for Mother’s Day, or start a new tradition of making one for every member of your family to add to their bedroom décor. Remember that friends are like family, too, so try framing your family members’ favorite faces in separate calendars. It’s a great way for them to cherish their friends, and for you to keep track of upcoming birthday parties, school events and office functions. Simple steps and materials make this craft project so easy—just let the important people in your life be your guide.
