Right now my eclectic living room is full of terrariums, natural elements, and gold accents. So this year I’ve designed a woodland terrarium tree. The idea came to me as I looked over my existing living room décor. I have several hanging terrariums and natural elements. I also am addicted to the old fashioned magic of Christmas. So playing off of these elements I’ve put together this woodland tree.
And if you’d be interested in creating your own or seeing how I put it together I would love to tell you about the details. The teepee which mt kids have loved is from From the Avenue Design.
The first detail I decided on were the terrariums which I was able to find at Joss and Main. I used three different sizes so there would be some variety. You can find the different ones here, here, and here. I have no idea why I have never seen a terrarium tree before when they’re literally the perfect way to decorate a tree regardless of theme. But for my woodland theme I used the cutest little deers from Miniature Plastic Deer. I also added some Spanish moss, pine cones, and real floral pieces.
To make the larger terrariums I hot glued suede from Consumer Crafts creating my own terrariums. Did you know you can make your own terrariums if you would like to save a little money. You can find my tutorial for this here.
The next element to the tree what the wooden pieces. I hot glued twigs into stars and spray painted pine cones I collected gold. Gold spray paint is the best. I have about four cans always on hand. I know, I have a problem. I also made a dried orange garland. I also thought it would be different and fun to add the babies breath as a unique and woodland touch.
I had fun making the tree topper. To carry on the woodland theme I collected some more twigs and purchased a dollar store gold star. With a hot glue gun I broke the twigs and attached them to the gold frame completely covering them.
The ornaments are regular plastic ones wrapped in burlap. And I hung the green and white ribbon from Rod Works around the tree too. The cute animal ornaments are from Hello Birdie Birdie from Etsy. The burnt reindeer ornaments are from my friends cute shop, The Urban Hare. And the cute little reindeer in the terrariums are from Miniature Plastic Deer.
The last small detail was an unexpected find. I found this wooden hoop at a thrift store over black Friday and decided to add it to my tree. I used a combination of real and silk florals and carefully added them to the bottom.
And that’s my tree. Thanks for going on my silly tour. I just love making and styling. So it was so fun for me to do this project. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.
