A Decor Setup Inspired By The Woods

Post image for A Decor Setup Inspired By The Woods

Nature-inspired décor is a beautiful thing. It gives you a feeling of being outdoors, helping reconnect you with your roots. Last week I did a post about taking a hike in the woods, and today I want to share an idea for what to do with all the specimen you may collect while on such a hike!

Whenever I spend time outdoors, I always seem to come back with a bag full of leaves, twigs, moss, pieces of tree bark, and more.

Woods specimen

For this décor setup, I’m using some specimen I’ve collected in the woods — like tree bark and moss — along with some things I’ve gotten from a craft store — like auburn eucalyptus, faux feathers, and glass bottles.

Glass bottles

How incredible is that glass light bulb vase? I found it at the craft store for $1 and was so stoked about it.

Fill your jars with bits and pieces of the specimen and find a spot to set it all up. I set mine up on top of a vintage wooden crate.

I placed the twigs and tree bark around the perimeter of the setup, and also added a candle inside one of the moss-filled jars.

I love the way a single feather looks inside a glass bottle that’s been turned upside down.

The next time you’re out on a walk, pick up some fallen specimen and incorporate them into your home. The best part about it is that once you’re ready for a new setup, you can just place the items back outside where they came from!

I’m obsessed with glass jars, and I have a bad (good) habit of picking up feathers every time I go on walks. So I have a jar stuffed with feathers that my cats just adore. Lol

Thanks Brigette. I’m SO sad not to have one of those out here in CA!

When some one searches for his vital thing, therefore he/she wishes to
be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained
over here. -September 17, 2014, 1:06AM

Helpful info. Fortunate me I discovered your site accidentally, and I’m stunned why this coincidence didn’t happened earlier!
I bookmarked it.
