well honestly. i handpainted mine on canvas..now i did a spin on mine an made a charlie brown tree..but it only took me roughly 2 hours.

I know Michaels sells the “tree prints” now and all you have to do is frame it.

If you are stressed on time and dont want to Paint one.. you can simply print out one if you are ok with 8 X11.  if you goggle thumbprint tree there will be TONS of images you can save/alter and print.

Good luck!

@shalynnmarie:  OOO I forgot, I HAVE seen them at Michaels! They’re pretty nice, too! That’s definitely a good option if you’re low on time!

We downloaded a file from here (offbeatbride), and it worked great!  I modified it in Photoshop, we printed it out at Staples (larger than 8.5X11, but I forget how big it was…16×20, I think?)  We found a frame at goodwill and bought some cute, leaf-shaped ink-pads at Michaels.  I think the whole project cost us ~$30.

The Micheal’s ones are good, but only if you have a small number of guests.  We had 98 guests, and the one I got form offbeat bride was the perfect size.

@FutureMrs.Mathy:  yes michaels..but as PP said-they are smaller for not a lot of guests. we have 150+ guests so i handpainted mine onto a larger canvas..it was SUPER EASY.

You can also print out a tree, “trace”it onto canvas and then paint it in.

buy a canvas from walmart or a local craft store- they are alaways by paint stuff and make it yourself it is so easy especailly if you plan on doing a ballon one!
