Enchanted Forest Tree
This is an earthy and woodsy theme that brings the outside inside.
A great look that's not too one-dimensional holiday looking. You can put it up early in the season because of the great "fall" look and keep it up late. It's festive without screaming Christmas.
Start with a green tree, and if you want to change the color of your lights each year, don't get a pre-lit tree.
Warm amber lights give tree the "enchanted" feel.
Create a miniature forest by wrapping tree with a garland made of real pine cones.
Hang painted glass, wide-eyed owl ornaments from the branches. In home decor, owls are very hot right now.
Add tiny glittery toadstools. Who knew that toadstools could be so beautiful?
Add some polka-dotted pheasant feather wrapped ball ornaments.
Top the tree with two faux antlers attached to the tree with floral wire. You can attach anything to a tree with floral wire.
