Printing a family tree on canvas can be a beautiful way to showcase family history while acting as a historical document at the same time. Collecting historical information about your family members can bring you closer to your ancestry and to your family while providing a record about your family’s past that can be passed on to the following generations. Take a look at a few ideas and tips for getting started making your own family tree on canvas for your next family art project.
The first step to creating your family tree on canvas is organizing your family’s information. To make it easier you might want to think about what you want to include on your family tree artwork before getting started; this way, you can avoid going back and forth with your information sources. Things to think about include:
The silhouetted tree with family members as "leaves" is a classic representation of a family tree but it is not the only way to display your family’s ancestry. You can use a background of a tree illustration or photo and have your family members’ information in a diagram above it, or even make your family member’s names form the shape of a tree instead. To do this you might use different typefaces or font sizes to make family relationships more clear. The Signs by Andrea blog provides a great collection of different ideas for designing a word art family tree.
Your completed family tree on canvas will be a work of art to enjoy today and an heirloom that can be passed down to your children and grandchildren. Of course, your family tree on canvas can also be a great gift to family members on any occasion or just because.
