Why display your old family photographs?

Let me answer that question with another question. Why not?

You may have many photographs of your ancestors in your home. They maybe in an old shoe box or tucked away in the back of a drawer.

Why are they hidden away? Wouldn’t you rather have them on display in your home?

Be proud of your ancestry!

I have researched my genealogy for a number of years now. In that time I have written my very own family history book. And I will say that I am very, very proud of what I have accomplished.

My book is my legacy that I will pass down to my children, and some day they will pass it down to their children!

If you do not want to write a family history book then why not showcase your heritage with a family tree wall decal? They can be a talking point for any visitor that comes to your home. And they can make any room of your house both warm and inviting.

Family Tree Wall Decal by Simple Shapes

I want to start off this review with the most popular family tree wall decal that you will find on the world’s largest retailing site. So far more than 260 people have commented on this product on Amazon. And most of them quite favorably!

The majority of these people were more than satisfied with this wall decal, where 81% rated 5 stars, and 10% gave it 4 out of 5 stars. Pretty impressive yes!

Manufacturer Simple Shapes
Standard Size 107 x 90 inch
Small Size 95 x 80 inch
Colors Chestnut Brown or Black
Material Type Matte vinyl
Packaging Dimensions 24.2 x 3.5 x 3 inches
Item Weight 2.1 pounds
Where to Buy Amazon
Also available for Amazon Prime customers!

Why are these people impressed?

Well I would say it is probably because the decal is made from matte vinyl. This means that when you put the tree on your wall it will look very much like paint. It just blends into the wall.

You do though have a choice of two colors for your tree. If you want the tree to look more natural then I would suggest that you go for the chestnut brown. Or if you don’t want that natural look and want it to stand out then you could always decide on the black tree.

Applying the tree to your wall is simple as there is an easy step by step instruction sheet included. You will just need to follow a few simple steps. And that’s basically it.

What are the steps?

There are only 4 steps that you will need to take for each part of your tree. And then when you have repeated these steps for each of the parts then you can stand back and admire your family tree on your wall.

  1. Cut out a part.
  2. Peel off the backing paper.
  3. Apply the part to the wall.
  4. Peel the transfer sheet.

Two different sized trees!

One of the great things that I like about this product is that you can decide whether you want the larger standard size or the smaller size tree if space is an issue for you.

By simply following the included instructions you can place on your wall a tree that measures 107 inches wide and is 90 inches tall. The smaller tree is 95 inches wide and 80 inches tall.

I must point out that this product is only a wall decal. To display your family photos in the tree then you will have to purchase additional photo frames, (if you don’t already have them).

But don’t worry as Amazon makes it really easy for you to purchase these photo frames from.


Want smaller again? No problem!

However, if you feel that even the standard and small sizes are too big for you then you do have a third option. Simple Shapes also sell a Narrow Family Tree Wall Decal that has two further sizes. The standard size for this product is 70 by 90 inches or if you want to go smaller then it will be 62.5 by 80 inches.

Again, for this alternative product you will have a choice whether you want a black or a chestnut brown matte vinyl tree on your wall. You will receive the same easy to follow instructions with this narrow family tree wall decal. So you shouldn’t have a problem to put it up on your wall.

Although the price for this decal is $150.00, (the same as for the larger product), I feel that you will be more than happy with it.

Would I recommend this product?

Definitely I would. If you do want the best family tree wall decal then you can’t go wrong with this one from Simple Shapes.

19-Piece Picture Frames by AZterisk

This product is slightly different to the other products reviewed in this post as it does offer photo frames as well. However, with the other products that I review you will have to pay more for the frames.

The wall decal and frames are only offered in one color, and that is black. Despite not having a choice it is still an impressive and eye-catching tree to display in your home.

Rating 4 Stars
Manufacturer AZterisk
Standard Size 72 x 45 inch
Color Black
Packaging Dimensions 16 x 16 x 8 inches
Where to Buy Amazon
Also available for Amazon Prime customers!

What size frames do you get?

  • Eight 4×6
  • Three 5×7
  • Two 8×10

There are 13 picture frames included which will hold up to 17 of your family photos. The picture frames come in three different sizes where the larger size can hold 3 photos each.

The frames are lightweight so you shouldn’t have any problem putting them up on your wall. You will though need to decide whether you want to use either nails or screws when hanging these frames.

My personal choice is screws, however one Amazon customer did use 3 to 4 pieces of velcro to hang up each of the frames.

Would I recommend this product?

Again yes I would. As I pointed out this product is slightly different to the other trees as there are also photo frames included. Although you don’t get many decals with this product once you have put it on your wall, along with the frames, it does look very much like a tree.

Staircase Family Tree Wall Decal by Simple Shapes

Rather than displaying your family tree on a wall in a room why not be different? How about you showcase your heritage on your staircase wall?

This is another family tree wall decal product that is supplied by Simple Shapes. As many Amazon customers highly recommended the first product in this post you will surely be impressed with this alternative product for your staircase.

Colors Black, chestnut brown or white
Material Type Matte vinyl
Packaging Dimensions 3.2 x 0.5 x 24.2 inches

Two differences between the staircase decal and the original decal?

  1. Choice of 3 colors – You can decide whether you want a black, chestnut brown or a white tree.
  2. Features 6 birds – They can either be perched on the tree or are soaring in the air


What if my staircase slants from right to left?

Well this is no problem. The supplier suggests that once you have placed your order that you should send them a message within 30 minutes with your request.

Would I recommend this product?

Yes I sure would. I really like that the supplier has thought about that blank ‘ugly‘ space on your staircase wall. What better way to brighten it up than to put a family tree there?

Family Tree Wall Decals Butterflies & Birds by ANBER

This is the biggest wall decal reviewed in this post. Once you have assembled your tree it will measure 108 inches wide by 84 inches tall. So if you do decide to got with this product then make sure you have the room first.

You do though have only one color option for the tree and that is black. But it still looks beautiful what with the butterflies and birds included.

And again it can look even more impressive with the additional photo frames. Although you will need to pay extra for these.

Butterflies and Birds
Rating 5 Stars
Manufacturer ANBER
Standard Size 108 x 84inch
Color Black
Material Type Vinyl
Packaging Dimensions 24.5 x 2 x 2 inches
Item Weight 1.5 pounds
Where to Buy Amazon

How easy is it to apply to your wall?

Very easy as you do have detailed instructions included. However, each of the leaves are individual and are not grouped together or part of the tree.

You don’t have to worry if you do make a mistake with placing the leaves on your wall. You can easily peel them off and adjust them.

Please note!

The seller does recommend that a newly painted surface is not recommended. You are advised to wait up to 3 months for the wall to completely dry.

Also, this wall decal will generally last for 5 years. This is because sooner or later the adhesive will lose its stick. If the adhesive was too good then it could peel off the paint.

For this reason you may want to re-stick them after the 5 years have lapsed.

Would I recommend this product?

If you have the wall space then yes I do!

    Hi Owain,

    I really like the idea of bringing the genealogy back in such a creative way.

    These wall decals are so beautiful and I would love to display one of them on my wall, maybe even two. I really like the Simple Shapes one. Actually whether to have the original or birds and butterflies. Maybe I’ll go for both of them.

    Thanks again.

    1. Owain Post author

      Yeah you can go for both Galina. With the original Simple Shapes wall decal you know that you will be getting quality. So many Amazon customers have given this positive feedback.

      If you go with the butterflies and birds I am sure you won’t be disappointed as Simple Shapes supply this one as well.

    How did you decide what pictures to use for your wall? My mom has lots of photos and I would have no idea how to go about picking the best ones for this. We have talked about using it several times. What kind of frames do you recommend using for the ones that don’t have frames with them?

    1. Owain Post author

      Hi Marcey,

      Thank you for your comment and your questions. It really is a tough task to choose which photos to use. You really want to have at least one photo for an ancestor. You want to make sure though that they are of good quality as it can really brighten up the appearance of the tree even more so.

      If you can’t decide on a photo of your ancestor why not have group shots of them. That way you will get many people featuring in your tree.

      Plenty of people have gone for the MCS branded photo frames. These are really stylish frames and are easy for you to put your photos in and hang up on the wall, either vertically or horizontally.

      They come in a set of 12 4×6 or you can get a set of 30 that includes twelve 4×6, twelve 5×7 and six 8×10.

      Hope this helps and all the best with your wall decal.
