You could paint over it, peel away the string, and leave a permanent version that won't collect dust.

Hmmm, using acrylics or water base paints may be problematic though, but it is a good idea.

Maybe aerosol paint (Krylon?), and just around the area of the tree (rather than the whole wall) - it should end up as a stark tree on a clouded, blurred-edge background.

I just meant that thick acrylic will "peel up" when you remove the string, as it does with tape, when it is used to keep an edge clean. I mean, it can be done, but you have to be extra careful with it. The "thinner the paint" the better probably.
