With Winter heavy in the air, the limbs on the trees in my area are bare. This starkness feels cold, dark and empty…so I thought I’d lighten the mood up a bit with a fun little project.
Our family eats a lot of cheese, and Brook especially likes this kind. One day she discovered that she could make sweet hearts out of the waxy red packaging.
Brook used the two halves of the wax from a cheese round to make one heart. Simply warm up the wax in your hands by rolling it into a ball, and then mold the ball into a heart shape.
I loved her recycled wax heart idea so much that I used it to make this tree.
Whenever I see hearts I think of love. And whenever I see a tree I think of “grow”.
Looking at this tree makes me think: Going out on a limb, with love in your heart…this love will grow…and glow.
