Create a unique family tree using a random assortment of family keepsakes in a delicate glass dome.

Learn how to make this heirloom using a random assortment of family keepsakes, from a grandfather's spectacles to a baby's first spoon, takes on a cohesive, deliberate look that's both attractive and timeless when encased in a delicate glass dome. The little tree is a lightweight branch, then spray-painted matte gold and held upright with epoxy.

When I saw these presentations my creative juices started flowing. In minutes the cup runneth over!.  I quickly entered by Zazzle craft shop and started tinkering with ideas on how to make my own  Family Tree Glass Dome. There are so many ornamental personalized keepsakes featured that would look great hanging from the family tree. It is a great place for making  keepsake gifts like watches, necklaces, ornaments, keychains, stamps and photo buttons. Visit our Zazzle page at http://www.zazzle.com/zzibcnet*/
