In a forest of Christmas trees, not only did these bloggers choose these trees but we choose to feature them in this post. We think you will love them! We've really fallen for forest themed Christmas tree ideas in particular. It is not hard to imagine those breathtaking memories will be made around these trees.

When choosing the right Christmas tree for your home, every store and Christmas tree lot has a forest of Christmas trees to choose from. There is spruce, fir, flocked, or artificial tree options.  Everything from the goals of the Rockefeller Christmas tree to the Charlie Brown Christmas tree. The sky is the limit.

Ok, maybe your ceiling is the limit, but the options are endless.

A Forest of Christmas Trees

There are countless blog posts out there that all have their own uniquely decorated Christmas trees. We have weeded through them and want to share some of our favorites with you that have cottage farmhouse feelings to them.

Whether you're looking for forest themed Christmas tree ideas or something more eclectic this holiday season, we have great options for you.

Woodland Christmas Tree

This Woodland tree from Beth Cox with Shady Pines Interiors is a perfect example of forest themed Christmas tree ideas. She uses woodland themed Christmas tree ornaments that make it feel like it belongs in a woodland wonderland.

Rustic Christmas Trees

We took inspiration from nature with this rustic Christmas tree one year. We flocked the tree ourselves which was so much fun.

Cotton stems provided decoration and an old crock and blanket for the tree stand and skirt. We added a rustic star to the top of the tree. Paired with a vintage Santa and basket with blanket, the overall look is rustic and cozy.

If you're looking for forest themed Christmas tree ideas, we have the tree for you. We put a flocked Christmas tree on the porch. When you can't have real snow, a flocked tree is almost as good.

We used woodland themed Christmas tree ornaments, birds, berries, or anything that looked outdoorsy. We used artificial Christmas trees in these last two examples. These days they look just as real as a traditional Christmas tree.

Gift Wrapping, Our Tree, Joy and Reindeer Cutouts and Imparting Grace

Joy is for sure the highlight of this tree. Likewise, the pairing of the ornaments chosen and put on display will certainly bring joy to anyone that gathers around this tree. This tree sure to make a living room feel cozy.

Jump over to Dear Lillie's blog and check out where else Jennifer used her cutouts as she decorated. We think you'll love it as much as we do.

Don't you love how an old galvanized tub is used to hold this tree in place of a traditional tree skirt? And a sweater blanket to cover the base of the tree is pure genius. I love the matching small tree. All the Christmas decorations blend so nicely together.

The flocking on the tree adds a kiss of snow and brings winter indoors. Of course this home is surely decorated as a Farmhouse Winter Wonderland and it makes us so happy!

Whimsical Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas: Michaels Makers by Love the Day

Love the Day

This tree is whimsical for sure and what kid wouldn't love to wake up on Christmas morning and dive under this tree to see what Santa had left. The traditional red and green decor is the first colors most people relate to Christmas.

We love the use of all things glittery and sparkly on this tree!

Vintage Farmhouse Christmas Tree

Sarah sweetly decorated this tree with antiqued lace and beautiful ribbon and strips of flannel material tied on to branch tips here and there. There's a pretty mix of silver, white, and gold ornaments. We just love the vintage feel this tree has.

The Merry Christmas banner made out of aged book pages and strung along the tree is a sweet wish for all who gaze at this tree.

Rustic Farmhouse White Christmas Tree & Mantel

I love this white color scheme. Here in Florida we are often times left only dreaming of a white Christmas, instead of actually having a white snowy Christmas. The white decorations used on this tree mixed with burlap christmas tree ribbon, brings every dream true for those of us that can wear shorts on Christmas day.

Likewise, this tree can bring new life to your rustic decorations that have been passed down through the years. And tie in the new blemish-less white ornaments you pick up this year to add-in.

Let it Snow Christmas Tree: Michaels Dream Tree Challenge

TomKat Studio

This tree from The TomKat Studio is shimmery and beautiful. The icicles garland exude elegance.

Kim is kind enough to share tutorials on how to create several of the ornaments. She connects you to posts where she walks you through how to make the gorgeous paper medallion ornaments. She also shares her memorable layered photo ornaments. 

Don't you agree that the silver bow tree topper is the icing on the cake?

Repurposed Thrift Shop Picture Frame Christmas Tree

We haven't forgot about those of you who don't have a place for a tree. Maybe you're a student in a dorm or just have limited floor space. You can always get a tiny faux tree or think outside the box with your holiday decor.

We love these old picture frames that have been painted and hung as a tree.

What Do I Need for Forest Themed Christmas Tree Ideas?

To create your forest themed Christmas tree think natural materials and elements. Pine cones, wood slices, and fresh cuttings. Warm lighting, woodland and animal-themed Christmas ornaments, wooden ornaments, wood bead garlands, wide burlap ribbon, and wooden tree toppers are all great ideas for a rustic tree.

How Do I Make My Forest Themed Christmas Tree Unique?

Think outside the box to make your tree look unique. Try using vertical ribbon or burlap in place of traditional garlands. Use a plush blanket and pillows instead of a tree skirt.

Try a vintage bucket or wicker basket in place of a traditional tree stand. Use tree toppers and Christmas tree decorations that are made from natural elements for a rustic touches.

The best part is that your imagination is the limit for whatever kind of tree theme you want to create.
