This flat pack, DIY Floral Tree of Life is made of plywood and comes unpainted. Enjoy it unpainted as-is or paint your own version as a solo or group activity!

This Folk Art Tree of Life kit was inspired by the Mexican Tree of Life (Arbol de la Vida) collection at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The designs of the trees of life are as diverse as the artisans who make them and the villages in which they live. In general, however, trees of life depict the creation story and feature animals, angels, and other characters. Trees of life are made and given as symbols of abundance, fertility and joy.

Instructions for this easily-assembled kit are included, but for best results, we recommend you remove and paint the tree cut out before assembling it. Please note, paint is not included.

Approximate dimensions for the assembled Floral Tree of Life: 10 3/4" high x 7 3/4" wide.

Pictured here is one of the original sculptures that inspired this Tree of Life.
