Step by step to make the tree to remember

To begin this manuality you will need as many stones as children are in the school and some more for the floor of the tree.

Make a composition to see how it could be.

Wash the stones

Wash the stones so that the paint is well fixed.

Painting with acrylic paint

Paint the leaves’ green stones giving them a pair of paint hands. Wait for them to dry well between each layer.

When it has dried, put green paint a lighter shade, if you want you can use white to brighten.

How to paint the center stone

To paint the center stone begins by applying the yellow and continuous tone to the red, to end with the green by the edge.

Write the names with a pencil

Use a soft pencil and write softly the names on the stones. When you have them all, review the names with a black marker.

Important to keep in mind

I recommend that you gradually adapt the stones with the names. Go forming the tree to see the composition of how it is left, do it before you paint the names with the marker, so you can erase and change the address of the names if you need it, that will depend on where you place the sheets.

Glue the stones

Use a flexible glue, and glue the stones on the card or sheet, starting from the bottom up. When you reach the part of the leaves, glue the central Stone.

Frame your tree of names to remember

All you have to do is put a nice frame and finish your work. We have used one from IKEA which are quite affordable and simple.
