How-To: Picture Frame Family Tree

Craft & Design Home

This great idea for a unique take on the traditional family tree was submitted to
Popytalk by Erika, the daughter of one of their readers. When it comes to the overall look of the project, beyond being impressed that the shapes for such a convincing and large tree were cut out freehand using cork shelf liner, I love how the mismatched frames make the whole thing feel timeless and inviting. Though the design itself looks very neat and professional, it’s actually a simple and inexpensive project that can be put together over a weekend!

    This is amazing!! I want to know what kind of paper or fabric was used to make the tree?

    I’ve done a tree like this in my daughters jungle nursery. Hooks instead
    Of pictures with monkeys and gorillas hanging from them. It’s super cute
