Natural and rustic, the woodland Christmas theme takes elements from rustic and Scandinavian style decor to create a holiday decorating style that is unique.

This post covers woodland Christmas tree ideas, and other rustic Christmas decor ideas, to inspire you create your best woodland Christmas theme designs yet.

Here are 5 ways to create a cozy and rustic woodland Christmas decoration style at home.

1—Choose a natural color scheme.

Use a natural color scheme made with colors that reflect those that you might find during a walk in the forest. Shades of green, brown, beige, and cream are all great colors to use as a basis for creating a woodland Christmas theme. Hints of gold, bronze, or silver add a lush look and feel to a woodland Christmas decorating theme.

2—Use a flocked Christmas tree and rustic ornaments.

A flocked Christmas tree is a great way to create a snowy forest feel in the home. Decorate the tree using natural colors and rustic ornaments and baubles.

Pine cones, forest animal ornaments, feathers, and gold accents make perfect woodland Christmas tree decorations. Drape a metallic ribbon around the tree to add a lush look to the woodland holiday theme.

Small Christmas trees also help to create a woodland Christmas ambiance. Plus, you can use smaller trees to decorate throughout the home. Decorate your space with mini Christmas trees, plants, and other greenery that make the room feel magical and forest like.

Wooden ornaments are a popular way to decorate a Christmas tree in rustic style. Look for ornaments that feature rustic woodland scenes and classic Christmas traditions, like sledding through the countryside. These ornaments also make great gift tags to attach to Christmas presents.

3—Incorporate woodland details and rustic flair.

Bird ornaments, mushroom ornaments, acorn ornaments, pine cone ornaments, and other forest theme ornaments are perfect to decorate a woodland Christmas tree.

Decorate your sofa and chairs with forest green or mushroom brown color accent pillows and faux fur or textured throw blankets. Faux fur accents add a glam touch to the rustic decor.

Add hints of gold, bronze, copper, or other metallic accents to give your woodland Christmas decorations a touch of glam. Shiny ornaments, ribbons, and baubles are a great way to do this.

Fill a dough bowl with pine cones and rustic decorative balls, and use it as a centerpiece for a coffee table or decorative tray. Pine cone garlands are another great way to decorate for Christmas using a rustic woodland theme.

Throw pillow covers are an easy way to change the look of a room each season. Don’t forget to get throw pillow inserts to use for filling the pillow covers.

4—Don’t forget the dining table.

Use natural fiber cloth napkins or use a rustic napkin ring to hold your napkins in place. A napkin ring decorated with a sprig is a great way to decorate each place setting in a way that captures the woodland theme.

Neutral color napkins work well for a woodland Christmas table place setting, and you can use the same color or napkin for other occasions throughout the year.

Use twine or ribbon to tie an artificial pine pick to each napkin. Arrange the napkin at the center of the plate for each place setting.

Decorate the mantel or sideboard table with small Christmas tree or other types of figurines.

5—Continue the theme with gifts.
