Pretty! And it's so cool that you can change the leaves with the seasons!

I LOVE this tree....... looking around the house now, where can I do a tree?   Very nice.

Thank you! 

this is so pretty! I wish I could do it to my walls, but I have stupid wood paneling. But I do have a pretty awesome wardrobe.  You just gave me plans for next weekend!
Thank you!  I am going to do this on a cinder-block wall in my aunt's classroom, I guess it will work - I bet it would work on paneling! You could even stripe you walls with different fabrics that you love in a few of the panel stripes....hmmmm.... I've got some in my laundry room....I think we're on to something! 
Good luck with whatever you end up doing!

I absolutely LOVE this! (But after looking at all of your projects, that's not surprising since every single one of them is amazing!)
Aren't you the sweetest!  THANK YOU!!!  Big smiles Cheesy

This totally rocks! I saw a wallpaper once that was on the wall right in front of a door (you know the tiny little entries that are closed off by a wall), it was a photography of fall scene with trees and a little path going through the woods. It made the space look sooo big as if you opened the door right into the forest... I've wanted a tree in my entrance ever since!

Your project sorta makes me think of when we used to organize kids' day camp. One summer, when our theme was trees, we had a painting of a huge tree and we printed out tons of different leaf shapes. At the end of each day, every child would cut out a leaf, colour it according to how they liked their day (green, yellow, or red), and they could write something on it if they wanted to. Then all the leaves were glued onto the tree, so at the end of the camp, we had a tree with tons of colours (more green than red, thankfully). During debriefing, when all the kids were asleep, this activities helped us adjust the next day's plans to that particular group.

Anyways, sorry for rambling on, all that to say that I simply ADORE your tree!
Congrats on the great idea and job!!!
Sounds like a great project and awesome wallpaper!!  I've thought about doing that to my far basement wall....but...I'm cheap.  Grin 
I've got to ask - is your profile picture a picture you?!  That's crazy!  I love it!!
I don't mind rambling Smiley  You've probably noticed that I do it too!  Lol!

It's beautiful!  And a really great way to use a small space. 
It's amazing and awesome. Very well done!
I might have to steal this idea when the hubs and I buy a house. It's totally genius!
THANK YOU!!  I appreciate your encouragement!!

LOVE it!  You have some really good painting skills, that tree turned out to be amazing.  Great idea to change out the leaves with the season as well.  Great project!  I would steal the idea, but our front door opens right into our living room, no entry way at all...although, it would look so cool in my bedroom above our bed...hmmm...new thoughts!!  Anyway, this is awesome, thanks for posting it!
Thank you Smiley  I think it would be really cool in a bedroom.  I'm trying to figure out what to do in my son's room.  Something like this, I think.  Not a tree necessarily...  I don't know.  I'm rambling Smiley  So, thanks again!  Good luck with whatever you end up doing!

Love this!!!! Very ambitious, amazing beautiful, and just perfect for your foyer! And it's inspired me to do something like this in my son's room...we live in an apartment, and doing the startching would be perfect!!!!
Thank you! I appreciate the compliment!   It's so easy, it's addicting! Have FUN!!

Pretty! And it's so cool that you can change the leaves with the seasons!
Thank you  Cheesy

Oh! I want one! I love it Cheesy I'd love to put one in my foyer but we share a house with my inlaws and I don't think they'd go for it. Maybe I can put one in my bedroom.

When can I move in?  I like Barbies, too, I'll totally fit in.  I'll even help cut out tree decorations and I can cook.  Plus, you have the magic powers of changing the weather, I definitely need to take some lessons from you. 

You have the most warm and welcoming foyer on the planet!  Love, love. This Rocks!

Nah, it's not me... it's a body-painting picture I found on google that I fell in love with! I wish I could do stuff like that, so I'm using it as inspiration to broaden my horizons Cheesy

The tree is so nice and your idea of changing the leaves is also very cool.  Grin How long did it take you to attach them to the wall? Are you sure you want to do that every three months? haha  Wink
