Print pictures of your family and friends on fabric maybe different shades of green. Cut them out in the shape of leaves and applique them on the limbs.

cut it to fit inside frames and hang them artisticly on a halway wall that's got nothing going on... or..
make curtains, a wall hanging...

i'd save it until i fell in love with a project, you know?

I would use it as a wall hanging...it would be so nice at the end of a hallway or in the kitchen even. You could always staple it to a wooden frame that you can custom make. Not sure if I am explaining this correctly but you can wrap the edges around the frame and staple it down (pull it tight of course). Maybe that will help give it a finished look.
Great find btw!! Good luck and post pics when you are done  Smiley

Whoa! This is one fantastic thrift store find. I, too, am incredibly jealous.  Tongue

I have no clue if this was ever popular in the US, but where I live there used to be a trend like this. wallpaper that was basically a huge photograph of a beach or an autumn forest. I always thought it was very tacky and tasteless. But idk, now that it's not done anymore and considering the photograph is cooler than those wallpapers you could do the wall hanging that everyone else suggested.

Another idea is to get a huge dinning table and put the fabric on top of it and then put a huge piece of glass for protection. It's another thing that I've seen in old fashioned houses with maps put between the surface of a desk and a big piece of glass. I'm really sorry if the idea seems totally lame, I just think it would make a really cool table.

i just had thought you could build a large table and the fabric could be the top with a large piece of glass over it to protect.  I say the idea in a book from the 70's if i can figure out how to scan the picture than i will post it and you could get a better visual.  althought it would be a humongous table, maybe when you get your own place.

i think you should get the image copied and made into wall paper for a room then hang it on the wall with the wallpaper to create a cool effect!

What about if you made a noren, a Japanese doorway curtain?  You basically cut it up the middle almost to the top, hem it, and hang it in a doorframe.  Here are some example pictures:
