Memorial Day – Rememberance Hearts
Honor the life well spent of your loved one with this new tradition idea!
Six years ago, Carrie’s family experienced the loss of a loved one. Out of that time in her life, she came up with the Remembrance Hearts. I have loved them and used them ever since. She wanted to leave something at the grave site that was personal and would show her love and respect for her grandpa. Below is a picture of what she did.
Such a simple idea that speaks volumes to those we have loved and miss deeply in our lives. You can use this heart separate on it’s own or put it into a planter or flowers that you are leaving at the grave site.
Cut and paste a photo of your family, your loved one, or you in the white box. With a black marker, write who you are giving this to under the words “We Love You”. For example, Grandpa, Mom, Dad, etc. Laminating the heart will help the planter last throughout the year.
Cut out the heart with scissors, or use scrapbook scissors to make a decorated edge. Tape a bamboo skewer to the back with pointed edge down. Stick in a pot of flowers or place directly on grave site.
Our heart is perfect for placing in flowers for a funeral or decorating the grave of your loved ones as well as on Memorial Day. Each heart is 8×10 and has a special space reserved for a family picture or a picture of your loved one
