Family Tree

My grandmother is turning 85 in a month, and I know she would love a family tree with pictures of everyone in her family as a present. She LOVES pictures and all the walls in her room are covered with them. The problem is, I'm not really sure how to execute this idea so it looks professional. I will have the whole thing framed and such, but I'm having trouble coming up with ideas for how to make the actual tree. Should I craft an actual tree and glue on pictures? Should I go for the geometric approach and just connect everyone with lines?

Please share any ideas you might have! Thanks!


What immediately came to mind for me is creating a wall decal in the shape of a tree or just painting a tree on the wall that these pictures will go on. I have the image of a bare tree in mind, but adding leaves would work too. I'm not sure if all your pictures are already framed or if you plan to frame the entire thing as a whole.

Here's some sites with info about wall decals: Threadbanger and Instructables

I like the other suggestions about actual tree branches as well. Good luck!
