First Paint a Tree: I used a large rectangular canvas. My first “draft” was more abstract, I later outlined the branches to add more depth and re-shaded the painting to make it more realistic looking using Burnt Umber.

Photo Tree - Tree Painting

This project was made to display at my upcoming Grandmother’s Memorial Service so I am using some old photographs that I didn’t want to get damaged by adhesives so I picked up a box of photo corners to apply to the painting to hold the photographs.

Finished Photo Tree

I arranged the photos on the painted canvas using the photo pockets to hold the photos in place. This provided a great way to share beautiful memories.

This would be a great project to also complete for a Birthday Party, a Bridal Shower, an Anniversary Party, and many more occasions!

I’m thinking of transforming this into a more permanent photo holder after the event by painting small frame outlines onto the canvas “hanging from the tree” and then adhering photo (copies) to the board within the “frames” and then framing the whole artwork to hang in the living room or hallway.
