Firewood and Christmas trees

Most national forests allow users to harvest trees for personal use firewood and Christmas trees, but you must first have a Forest Service-issued permit and you must follow specific guidelines, which can vary from forest to forest.

Here are some general guidelines:

  • Contact the forest district office nearest you to obtain a permit for home firewood, Christmas tree and tree cutting instructions.
  • Wood or Christmas trees cannot be sold. Permits must be in your possession at all times while on the forest.
  • Contact each forest district office for specific dates, maps, times, and accessibility.
  • Before heading out, check the local forest for the latest warnings, such as fire or road closures.
  • Always check weather conditions for proper dress attire in the forests.
  • Tell someone you know where you are going and when you’ll return.
  • Check with local district offices before you cut dead or downed trees. Dead trees could provide animal habitat.
  • Stay away from areas along the sides of streams, rivers, lakes, and wet areas. Check with the ranger district for the proper distance.
  • Be aware of areas where trees may be weakened by storms, insect damage or fire.
  • Learn how to read a map and use a compass – and carry them both with you.

Additional guidelines for Christmas trees:

  • Most holiday tree permits are issued in November. Know your location, the weather, and your ability to traverse through snow.
  • Dress for the season. Always be prepared for the cold and snow, and start tree hunting early in the day to have plenty of daylight hours.
  • Bring emergency supplies, including water and food and a first-aid kit.
  • Remember to tell someone where you are going. Your cell phone may not work on many forests.
  • The tree you choose must be at least 200 feet from main roads, recreation sites and campgrounds, and stay away from areas along the sides of streams, rivers, lakes, and wet areas. Check with the ranger district for the proper distance.
  • Select a tree with a trunk six inches or less in diameter, and prepare to cut the tree no more than six inches above ground level.
  • Never cut a tall tree just for the top.
  • Select a tree from overstocked areas and thickets. Watch restricted areas. Cut only one tree per tag.
  • Attach your tree tag to harvested tree before placing in vehicle.
  • Bring a rope and tarp to move your tree from the harvest area to your vehicle.

What about other forest products, such as mushrooms and greenery?

A visit or call to your local forest or grassland district office is your first step. Tell them what you are interested in and how you can go about legally obtaining the items, what permits you need and what guidelines you must follow.

Our national forests and grasslands are here today for our use and enjoyment but also for the use and enjoyment of future generations. Help us make these vital natural resources a continuing legacy.

Remember: You are responsible for your own safety and for the safety of those around you.

Why settle for just one Christmas tree when you can have a whole forest? These Christmas trees made from timber off-cuts are stained in five different shades of Resene Colorwood to create a decorative display for your mantelpiece or table.

  • Scrap wood (Fleur used untreated pine)
  • Mitre saw
  • Sandpaper
  • Resene Colorwood stains in your choice of colours, Fleur used Resene Colorwood Ebony, Resene Colorwood Touchwood, Resene Colorwood Matai, Resene Colorwood Teak, Resene Colorwood Rock Salt
  • Cloth/rag
  • Rubber/silicon gloves
  • Wood glue

How to create a christmas tree forest

Step 1: Start by cutting your wood into tall triangles and tree shapes. For this project Fleur used some scrap untreated pine wood but any easy-to-cut wood will work. Sand down any rough edges with medium-grit sandpaper. Use wood glue to glue together any trees that are made of multiple pieces. Take care not to get any glue on the front face as it will stop the wood stain penetrating into the timber.

How to create a christmas tree forest

Step 2: Wear silicon rubber gloves and use a soft, lint-free cloth to rub the stain on to the trees. Fleur used Resene Colorwood Ebony, Resene Colorwood Touchwood, Resene Colorwood Matai, Resene Colorwood Teak and Resene Colorwood Rock Salt. Fleur did two coats of Resene Colorwood Teak and Resene Colorwood Rock Salt, and one coat of Resene Colorwood Matai, Resene Colorwood Touchwood and Resene Colorwood Ebony.

How to create a christmas tree forest

Step 3: Cut out some small bases and ‘trunks’ from some more scrap wood. Stain these the same colours as the trees.

How to create a christmas tree forest

Step 4: Use wood glue to attach the base and trunks to the trees. Allow the glue to dry for a couple of hours. If you want a slightly glossier finish, you could rub on some Resene Danska Teak Oil or coat with Resene Aquaclear waterborne urethane.

How to create a christmas tree forest

Create a colourful forest of Christmas trees by staining your timber in a range of wood stain colours. Fleur’s trees are painted in Resene Colorwood Ebony, Resene Colorwood Touchwood, Resene Colorwood Teak, Resene Colorwood Rock Salt and Resene Colorwood Matai and the wall colour is Resene Rapture.

When Command Brand contacted me asking if I would like to try out their products when creating a homemade Christmas decoration, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I had seen a few twig tree decoration guides on Pinterest and several high street stores selling them for the festive period and thought they looked fun, simple and relatively cheap to make.

We have already made some DIY snowflake stars for our house and really enjoyed being creative with our Christmas decor.

So, on a bitterly cold November Sunday morning, I dragged the whole family begrudgingly to Wakehurst Place to find branches and twigs (with lots of moss) to create my masterpiece.

How to make a Christmas Twig Tree decoration

It’s so simple to make and all you’ll need is

Branches or twigs!

Something to hang the tree up with. I’d recommend Command Hooks as the decoration is seasonal, so you’ll want to remove it after Christmas

A ball of jute string or twine and scissors

A mini saw (or just find twigs that descend in size, can’t be doing with too much elbow grease!)

Fairy lights (I’d go with wire string lights, they’re easy to keep in place)

Small baubles in any colour and any other decorations you would like to add

How to create a christmas tree forestWhat can I say, twigs! How to create a christmas tree forestCommand Brand Hooks How to create a christmas tree forestSome string and a pair of scissors – Army pattern optional How to create a christmas tree forestI went for these miniature Black Forest baubles from Paperchase How to create a christmas tree forestGlitter Birds – also Paperchase

Check out the measurements

Once you’ve got your materials ready, think about where you want to hang it. This is important as it will dictate how long (tall) your tree will be. I decided to go for above my fireplace, so I measured how tall I wanted it and then measured out the same length on my dining table and went about arranging my twigs to fit this length.

You could use all manner of measurements to make sure it’s perfect, but I think a rough placement works best.

How to create a christmas tree forestSee! No saw needed, all the twigs are perfect in length. Took me about 3 hours to find them though, might have been quicker to use a saw!

Connect the twigs together

Once you’re happy with the arrangement, you need to connect all the twigs together with string and this is where it requires patience. Start with the bottom (longest) twig and wrap the string around the twig 2 to 3 times and tie a knot before going to the next twig. Keep doing this until you get to the top twig and then leave some string in place to form a triangle at the top to hang the tree from.

Repeat this on the other side of the twig tree and then tie the string in place at the top. This took me a couple of attempts and a lot of tweaking as, when I lifted the tree up with the string, I found the twigs would drop or not all hang horizontally. Just loosen the knot and reposition the twigs until you’re happy. You can then staple the string into place, but I found that the knots did the trick.

How to create a christmas tree forestThe twigs and strings did not behave!

Decorate your twig tree

Then the fun bit begins. You can either choose to decorate the twig tree whilst it’s still on the table or hang it up and decorate it on the wall. I decided to hang it in place first, so I could get a better picture of how it would look.

First of all, I used a Command Hook to hang up the tree which was really simple to do. Just peel off the adhesive at the back of the hook and press it into place on the wall, applying pressure for about 30 seconds. I then hung the twig tree and placed another command hook to hand a decorative star from which hides the top knot of the string and makes it look more like a Christmas tree.

How to create a christmas tree forestHanging the Star to cover the string

Once the tree is in place, I wrapped the wire fairy lights around the twigs. I then decorated it with small baubles from Paperchase (it’s definitely easier to get baubles where you have to tie the thread, or you would have to place the baubles on the tree first before placing the string) and attached some small glitter birds with clips. And ta-dah! Your twig Christmas tree is complete.

How to create a christmas tree forest

We all want to decorate the perfect Christmas tree with baubles, ornaments and lights perfectly coordinated in a festive and stylish scheme. In reality, however, it’s easier said than done. Decorating a Christmas tree is no mean feat, especially for the perfectionists among us, but if your home is your pride and joy and the tree is the centrepiece of your home come the festive season, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve spoken to a range of style and decorating experts, including the team at Balsam Hill – whose artificial Christmas trees have graced the TV sets of The X Factor, Good Morning Britain and This Morning – about how to decorate your Christmas tree to make it look like you hired a professional, plus how to choose the right Christmas tree decorations to suit your theme.

But before we begin, like any task, you need to have the right tools to ensure the safe and proper set up of your Christmas tree. This includes cotton gloves for shaping branches, scissors with safety handles for materials, packaging or equipment, and a sturdy ladder or step stool for installing toppers and arranging décor on taller trees.

So now you’re all set up, fancy getting that Insta-worthy look with very little effort? Read on.

1. Invest in a high-quality artificial tree

Christmas trees crafted from premium materials provide sturdy and reliable support for decorations. You’ll find that high-quality trees are generally more durable and can stand up to repeated year after year, all whilst maintaining its beautiful look.

Opt for a traditional tree rather than a trend-led one so that it doesn’t go ‘out of date’ after a few years (FYI, asymmetrical, sparse trees are expected to trend this year), and a traditional design gives you the perfect base to layer and decorate as you wish.

Pre-lit Christmas trees are a firm household favourite because it saves time in untangling all those lights, but on the other hand, a benefit of buying an unlit tree is that you can choose whatever lights you want. When it comes to size, 7ft Christmas trees are now extremely popular but you should always choose a tree that fits in your space and doesn’t leave it feeling too cramped. If you’re tight on space, there are some great slim Christmas trees on the market, including narrow pencil designs, which may be a better fit. And remember, to prevent wear and tear on your Christmas tree, consider models with advanced features that offer easy set up and storage.

Tip: When buying your tree, ensure you have the right Christmas tree storage, such as storage bags and boxes, as well as storage for wreaths, garlands and lights, so that you’re fully equipped when you take your Christmas tree down and pack everything away.

Alternatively, if you want a real Christmas tree, there’s a great selection of different types available to buy at tree farms, markets or home & DIY stores. See all the tree varieties available, including Nordmann Fir and Norway Spruce, in our real Christmas trees guide.

How To Paint Silhouette Trees With A Fan Brush (With Video)

Hello artist friends! I feel inspired to write this post because a fan brush is such a handy tool if you would like to paint pine trees in you acrylic paintings!

This post specifically demonstrates how to paint silhouette trees.

You can also grab your flat or bright brush to paint these kinds of trees. But actually, I sometimes like to grab the fan brush because it gives a different unique effect!

There’s so many different kinds of paintings you can do with tree silhouettes! You can paint a sunset sky first and then do silhouette trees. Then add some water reflecting underneath.

You can also paint a galaxy sky and then paint the trees in front of the galaxy sky! Or…I actually like the simplicity of the pure black trees against a white canvas.

Also a bonus – If you are attempting to paint my American Flag Sky painting soon or have painted it but struggled with the trees, I hope this mini demo will help!

I recommend that you practice this technique on several sheets of paper first. It takes a bit to “calibrate” with the brush and get the hang of it. But when you figure out the technique, it’s really quite addicting!

Are you looking for how to paint a green tree with snow on it?

See my post about how to paint snowy trees three ways, one in which uses this fan brush technique!

Now Let’s Paint Those Happy Trees!

This post contains a few affiliate links.

What You’ll Need

    • Fan Brush
    • Tiny Detail Brush (Any round brush labeled #0 or smaller -I’m using the “0” in this set.
    • Practice Paper or Canvas Paper.
    • Black Paint, preferably a thin paint. I’m actually using Apple Barrel black for the demonstration pictures and it was not thinned out with water. In the video, I used BASICS “Mars Black” that was thinned with a bit of water. It’s hard to do this technique if your black is too thick.

Picture Steps & Instructions

1. Use A Round Brush to Draw A Trunk

Using a very tiny round brush, paint a vertical line to represent the trunk of the tree.

I recommend watering down the black just a bit to help the flow. I am using Apple Barrel Black craft paint for this demo so it didn’t need to be watered down. How to create a christmas tree forest

2. Load Your Fan Brush

When I load my fan brush, the bristles tend to clump together.

Try stroking the brush on the palette a bit to get the fan bristles to spread like a fan! How to create a christmas tree forest

3. Stamp the tips from top to bottom

Start at the top of that vertical line.

Stamp just lightly to create a thin set of branches.

To do this, I only used the middle area of the fan brush and not the left and right sides.

Also, I am stamping just the tip of the bristles and not all the bristles. How to create a christmas tree forest

4. Work your way down in zig-zag motion forming the shape of a pine tree.

As you work your way down, keep stamping the brush left and right in a zig-zag motion.

Apply more pressure to the brush to make these branches thicker, heavier and wider forming the shape of a pine tree.How to create a christmas tree forest

5. Keep working your way down, widening the shape.

As you keep “zig-zagging” your way down, make your tree form a wider shape on the bottom.

I leave a space for the trunk on the bottom too. How to create a christmas tree forest

6. Vary the heights and shape of the trees.

If you’re painting a treeline silhouette, try varying the heights of the trees for a more natural look.

Also, you can vary the shape (thin and thick) and the amount of white space showing. How to create a christmas tree forest

7. Use the tiny round to add more details on the top

If you “goofed” on the first step and couldn’t get the branches to be thin enough, try using a tiny detail brush to add the smaller branches on the top of the tree. How to create a christmas tree forest

8. Practice Practice Practice!

This technique is tricky at first but I mentioned earlier that you’ll need to practice it a bit with that fan brush.

To paint the bottom line, I used a larger round brush. How to create a christmas tree forest

And that’s it! Keep practicing and you’ll be an expert at painting those “Happy Silhouette Trees”!

How to Decorate a Tiny Christmas Tree

Add a strand of lights. Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve a few lights. Battery lights are perfect for tiny trees.

Keep ornaments and garland smaller, but go big if you wish on top.

If you do add larger ornaments, hang fewer.

Use a pine branch in a vase as a tiny tree.

Double up, or create a small forest of tiny trees.

Use a real tree and plant outside after the holidays.

Cover your tiny tree. Add a birdcage over the top or a glass cloche.

Ideas for the Base of your Tiny Christmas Tree

A tiny tree stands out with a great base.

  • Wooden Box – Our tree is in a photo box. The lid is open, and the tree sits inside. I found the box at the thrift store with photos. I kept the photos even though we have no idea who they are!!
  • Wicker Basket – If you have empty areas in the basket, fill with extra ornaments, or battery candles.
  • Picket Fence = Make a picket fence with popsicle sticks to go around your tree.
  • Tin Can – If your tiny has a wire or stick as the middle, add floral foam to an extra-large tin can for a casual farmhouse look.
  • Burlap – Place the tree in the center of a square or circle of burlap. Then gather it up around the bottom and tie with twine. You can age your burlap too.
  • Paper bag – Roll the top edge of a paper bag down, then et the tree inside. If you have youngsters around the house, have them decorate the bag first.
  • Vase – Use a vase or urn to hold your tree elegantly.

Today we celebrate the feast of St. Boniface (680–754), known in Church history as the Apostle to the Germans. Boniface is regarded as “probably the greatest missionary since St. Paul” for his extensive travels and successful evangelization efforts in modern-day Germany.[1] While he is well known as a great bishop and evangelizer, Catholic legend, based on actual historical events, also holds that Boniface is the founder of the use of a Christmas tree to celebrate the birth of the Christ Child.

The story of the Christmas tree begins in England, where the very young Winfrid decided to enter a Benedictine monastery over the objections of his parents. Winfrid grew in holiness and piety but yearned to leave the monastery and bring the light of Christ to the pagan Germans just as the monks had brought the Faith to England a century earlier. Winfrid heard reports that Pope Gregory II (r. 715-731) had sent missionaries to Bavaria in 716 and decided to travel to Rome to become a missionary to the Germans. Pope Gregory was delighted at the arrival of the eager Winfrid and after a period of time commissioned him to preach the Gospel in the regions of Thuringia, Bavaria, Franconia, and Hesse. In recognition of his special missionary commission the pope also changed Winfrid’s name to Boniface.

The newly named monk travelled to Hesse (central Germany) in 721 and “with his tireless activity, his gift for organization, and his adaptable, friendly, yet firm character” achieved great success, including the conversion of the twin chieftains Dettic and Deorulf.[2] Boniface also established Benedictine monasteries throughout his area of evangelization, including the great monastery of Fulda in 744.[3] News of his great achievements reached Rome, where he was recalled by Pope Gregory to provide a status report. Impressed and pleased with Boniface’s efforts, Gregory consecrated him archbishop for all Germany east of the Rhine (without a specific episcopal seat) and placed his territory under the pope’s jurisdiction. Imbued with this new authority and pontifical mandate, Boniface returned to Germany in 723.

Boniface spent the rest of his life evangelizing the areas of modern Germany and parts of the Netherlands. He also became a friend of the Frankish court and helped reform and reorganized the Church in that area. From his missionary travels, Boniface knew that in winter the inhabitants of the village of Geismar gathered around a huge old oak tree (known as the “Thunder Oak”) dedicated to the god Thor. This annual event of worship centered on sacrificing a human, usually a small child, to the pagan god. Boniface desired to convert the village by destroying the Thunder Oak, which the pagans had previously boasted the God of Boniface could not destroy, so he gathered a few companions and journeyed to Geismar.

His fellow missionaries were scared and fearful that the Germans might kill them, so they balked when they reached the outskirts of the village on Christmas Eve. Boniface steadied the nerves of his friends and as they approached the pagan gathering he said, “Here is the Thunder Oak; and here the cross of Christ shall break the hammer of the false god Thor.”[4] Boniface and his friends arrived at the time of the sacrifice, which was interrupted by their presence. In a show of great trust in God and born from a desire to enkindle the fire of Christ in the German pagans, Boniface grabbed an axe and chopped down the Thunder Oak of mighty Thor.

The Germans were astounded. The holy bishop preached the Gospel to the people and used a little fir tree that was behind the now felled oak tree as a tool of evangelization. Pointing to it he said,

“This little tree, a young child of the forest, shall be your holy tree tonight. It is the wood of peace… It is the sign of an endless life, for its leaves are ever green. See how it points upward to heaven. Let this be called the tree of the Christ-child; gather about it, not in the wild wood, but in your own homes; there it will shelter no deeds of blood, but loving gifts and rites of kindness.”[5]

Awed by the destruction of the oak tree and Boniface’s preaching, the Germans were baptized.

Boniface continued his missionary efforts into old age when in 754, he left for a trip to Frisia with fifty monks. Their work was successful and many pagans agreed to receive baptism. When the appointed time came to celebrate the sacrament, a large armed crowd of pagans approached the missionaries. Knowing his time to die was at hand, Boniface discouraged his followers from fighting and said, “Cease my sons, from fighting, give up warfare for the witness of Scripture recommends that we do not give an eye for an eye but rather good for evil. Here is the long awaited day; the time of our end has now come; courage in the Lord!”[6] The ferocious pagan attack left Boniface and his fellow companions dead and celebrated as martyrs for the Faith.

His later biographer, Othlo, recalled Boniface’s deep love for the people who he endeavored for so long to bring to Christ:

The holy bishop Boniface can call himself father of all the inhabitants of Germany, for it was he who first brought them forth in Christ with the words of his holy preaching; he strengthened them with his example; and lastly, he gave his life for them; no greater love than this can be shown.”[7]

In the centuries that followed, the Catholic tradition of using an evergreen tree to celebrate the birth of Jesus spread throughout Germany, and German immigrants in the eighteenth century brought the custom to the New World. Although there are many stories, legends, and myths surrounding the founding of the Christmas tree, including the claim that the custom originated with Martin Luther, there is only one story rooted in a real person and a real event: Boniface, converter of the Germans, who destroyed Thor’s mighty oak.

How to create a christmas tree forest

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card.

I love the fact that the Planner Essentials dies can be used for more than just my planner spreads. So, to create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials collection, Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

How to create a christmas tree forest How to create a christmas tree forest

Step One. You’ll need to choose two patterned papers from the Christmas Market Collection. Die cut the 4 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the 4″ Stitched Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangles. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Use the reverse side of the patterned paper used on the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle and die cut the 1″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtails out of. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Christmas Market collection and die cut the 1 1/2″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtails out the paper. Cut the 1″ fishtail down to 4 1/4″. Cut the 1 1/2″ fishtail down to 4 3/4″. Distress the edges of each fishtail. Ink the edges of each fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut two base trees and each patterned tree from the Planner Essentials – 12 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. The chevron tree will stay white. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fired Brick Distress Ink over the entire surface of the dotted tree. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of both base trees. Ink the edges of the base trees and dotted tree using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the same Planner Essentials – 12 die, die cut a small star and medium star out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam over the entire surface of each star. Ink the edges of each star using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials – 14 die, die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Six. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Foam square the 1 1/2″ fishtail 1″ from the right and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the 1″ fishtail 7/8″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. The fishtails will over lap.

Step Seven. Adhere the trees together. On the dotted tree, adhere the small star at the top. On the chevron tree, adhere the medium star at the top. Foam square the chevron tree 1/4″ from the right and 5/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the dotted tree 1/2″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Eight. Adhere the Merry to the middle of the dotted tree. Adhere the Christmas to the bottom section of the dotted tree. The Christmas word will hang slightly off the left side of the tree and will adhere to the chevron tree.

Step Nine. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 3/4″ x 9″, score at 4 1/2″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Why Christmas trees may be harder to find this year (and what you can do about it)

Smoke from the Bond Fire billows above Peltzer Pines Christmas tree farm in Orange County, Calif., on Dec. 3, 2020. Extreme weather and supply chain issues could make Christmas trees harder to come by this holiday season.

We don’t want to be Grinches, but we do want to give you a heads-up about some important holiday news: Christmas trees may be harder to find than usual.

Jami Warner, the executive director of the American Christmas Tree Association, tells NPR that both environmental and economic factors are to blame.

Planet Money

We Buy A Lot Of Christmas Trees

Extreme weather events like wildfires, droughts and floods have made this an especially challenging season for growers. Such events are driven by climate change and could become more common as the Earth warms.

And even artificial trees are feeling the burn, thanks to ongoing global supply chain issues.

“The great majority of our artificial Christmas trees are manufactured in China, and Christmas trees and pretty much every other consumer good is languishing either out at sea or hasn’t shipped yet,” Warner explains.

Experts expect the bottleneck at U.S. ports is to get even worse during the holiday season, exacerbated by Americans’ online shopping.

Consider This from NPR

Why The Global Supply Chain Is Still Clogged — And How To Fix It

All of this means that you can expect to pay at least 20% more for your Tannenbaum, whether real or artificial.

It’s not all bad news

But don’t despair. It’s still worth holding out hope for a Christmas miracle.

Warner says there are bound to be bargains and online sales out there. And she’s officially giving you permission to act fast and claim your tree early.

“I think it’s very important for consumers to, if they see something they like, to buy it right away,” she advises.

Coronavirus Updates

Get a fan and get vaccinated, the CDC says in its safety tips for the holidays

And it doesn’t have to be the tree of your dreams, she adds. After all, there are many other sources of Yuletide joy — especially this season, with vaccinations making it safer for people to travel and gather.

“This year, I think people will be able to celebrate Christmas with their families again and with their friends, and no one is going to notice if you don’t have that very, very perfect Christmas tree,” Warner says. “Really, there are no such thing as bad Christmas trees — they’re all beautiful.”

This is a press release from the Six Rivers National Forest:

How to create a christmas tree forestThe Six Rivers National Forest has been chosen to provide this year’s Christmas tree that will adorn the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol. The tree will be transported, along with smaller trees for Capitol offices from Northern California. Using the theme, “Six Rivers, Many Peoples, One Tree” local residents are being invited to create Christmas tree decorations and submit them for use on the tree.

The Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE) is encouraging Humboldt County families to participate in the festivities by creating large and small ornaments, or tree skirts. “This is the perfect activity for families to make ornaments in a variety of themes,” said HCOE’s Hannah Gossi. It provides a great ‘Christmas In July’ opportunity for children to get creative during the summer. The deadline to submit ornament creations is September 1, 2021. Homemade ornaments may be dropped off at the Humboldt County Office of Education on Myrtle Avenue in Eureka or at one of several other Humboldt County locations.

Suggested Themes

  • Natural Resources(wildlife, flowers, trees)
  • Cultural Diversity (tribes, logging, fishing, agriculture)
  • Uniquely California (what makes our state special)
  • Forest Service Icons (Smokey Bear “Fire Education” & Woodsy Own “Don’t Pollute”)

Example ornament ideas with printable instructions can be found here . Additional information may also be found on the Six Rivers National Forest website or by calling (707) 442-1721. Please view all the important details to participate here .

How to create a christmas tree forest

It’s almost Christmas and the bliss, love and joy of being together that we can breathe in this time of the year is an inspiration to me. Is it possible to recreate the warmth, the wonder and the magic of Christmas in a wedding?

I created for you a moodboard full of ideas and inspiration for a Christmas-themed wedding! ?

Palette

Christmas is not only red and gold, there are endless color variations that, if well balanced, evoke the Christmas spirit to perfection!

For example, I think of nuances of green fir and green leaf contrasted by ice, white and opaque silver.

To bring some sparkle to the green that dominates the moodboard I imagine berries and flowers in shades of red.

The berries offer discreet color touches with a great visual impact, for a sophisticated and fresh result at the same time.

Location

The location can only be a wooden cottage, with lighted fireplaces and wooden beams to decorate with lights and greenery!

Make your mark. Plant a tree.

Whatever your occasion, be a part of growing the National Forest into a place people and nature can thrive. So far, we’ve planted 8,965,000 trees in the National Forest, which means that we have only 35,000 trees until we reach 9 million. You can help reach that target by helping to plant trees in the National Forest.

Dedicate a Tree

Whether you’re looking to dedicate a tree or to simply help the environment, we offer a no-mess way to plant a tree – we’ll do it for you. Choose from a range of species and we’ll find a home for it in the National Forest.

Give a gift that keeps on growing. Join us at one of our planting events, and personally plant your tree in the National Forest. Our experienced team will give you a warm welcome and be on hand to help make your day special.

Dedicate a Grove

Be a part of creating a long term future for the National Forest by dedicating a grove. Whether for yourself, for a loved one, or for your family, we can help you find the perfect spot.

Grow a tree from seed

There’s nothing more satisfying than planting your own acorn and watching it grow. Start to nurture your oak tree with our helpful guide, and make your seedling pledge with us.

This video explains the basics of how to make a simple Christmas Village display.

Products Used

The following tools were used (see 4-in-1 Pro Model Kit):

  • Hot Wire Foam Factory Pro Variable Heat Power Station
  • 6 inch Pro Hot Knife
  • Sculpting tool with Wire Tensioner
  • Freehand Router
  • Precision Engraver

The following products were used:

  • Foam Fusion glue (used to glue foam layers)
  • Bounce Rubberizer (used for attaching glitter)
  • Foam Variety Pack (or get foam from your local hardware or building supply store as shipping can be expensive for foam)

Here are the basic steps:

Stack up your foam and layout your village pieces on the layers, draw the curves for how you want your basic contours.

Cut out the contour curves using the Hot Knife.

Paint, using Latex or Acrylic paint. I used flat house paint and inexpensive foam and fiber brushes available at any school supply store.

How to create a christmas tree forest

Apply Bounce Rubberizer in small sections. Sprinkle on the glitter, shake off excess, let dry. To apply glitter in a small section, such as under the stairs, put glitter into a plastic baggie and snip off a corner; this allows you to apply it carefully to a section.

If there are young children in the house, you might want to glue down the houses to the display using a few drops of Styrogoo Glue. These can be later removed for storage. Plug in the lights. Admire your handiwork!

The last two years we have been in the middle of some kind of renovation at Christmas time, making focusing on decorations challenging. This year though we had so much fun putting everything up! I’m thrilled to share our Christmas room decoration ideas and a few easy Christmas decorating hacks you can use to make any room of the house more festive.

Because the outside of our house is still a work in progress – we’ve livened it up this year, with lights, color and a whimsical flair. I grabbed a couple of Nordic pines to plant in our planters (they were only $13 each at Walmart and will last all season long). Coupled with this cute wreath and teal party garland. It’s a mini-front porch that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Christmas kids room decoration ideas

We decorate the kids room every year and the centerpiece of it all is that they each get their own mini-trees. The kids LOVE getting to set up their little trees every year and fall asleep next to the lights. I love that their mini-trees means they get a lot of their decorating passion out and I can decorate our larger family tree. We let them pick out their own ornaments, hang some sentimental ones and decorate their hearts out. Remember last years unicorn Christmas tree!?

Simple felt ball garland, wreaths and Christmas teddy bears finish the space off and these fun naughty vs nice list pillows make me smile.

Christmas room decoration ideas for dinning and kitchen

Setting up our Christmas room decoration ideas for the dinning and kitchen is always so fun!

Being our 2 most used rooms in the house and also the two busiest, means that we need to set up decoration ideas that will set a festive vibe without overwhelming the space.

A simple tablescape of Target dollar section light up houses and a candelabra with funky lime green candles means we are as ready to sit for a quiet night of Advent as we are to host a romping dinner party.

Putting up wreaths over out photos brings the fresh pine smell into the space and creates a pretty backdrop to eat by.

Instead of cluttering our counters with 1,000 Christmas cooking items, we instead used our favorite kitchen shelves to create a Christmas display that is 100% festive and doesn’t impede our holiday cooking plans.

Christmas living room decoration ideas

Since we aren’t cooking and serving daily meals in the living room, it’s a space that can handle a bit more Christmas clutter… I mean Christmas fun of course 😉

To pull the space together and create Christmas living room decoration ideas you’ll love for years try grouping like items together. We set up our bottle brush collection behind the sofa creating a colorful forest that makes a much larger impact that individually placing them around the house.

Making space for the tree is an obvious point for any list of Christmas room decoration ideas. We are on team fresh tree every year! Something about the hunt and that amazing smell is just my favorite.

Christmas tree DIY decoration ideas

Here are a few Christmas tree decorating ideas that will quickly get your living room in the festive spirit:

  • Braided streamer Christmas garland which we still use on our tree right here
  • Learn how to make Christmas stars with paper and then fill your tree with them
  • Bubble gum Christmas garland – it’s like the marshmallow kind, but way more fun
  • Host a tree trimming party and then use all the balloons on your tree
  • Make a fun balloon tree skirt or a more natural looking rope tree skirt
  • And lastly, one of my favorite Christmas projects ever – make mini marque garland for the tree

One of the fun ideas we had this year to pull the living room into our Christmas rom decoration ideas list was to rearrange the bookshelf.

If you remember we built these wall shelves as a part of our DIY reading nook update and they normally hold, you guessed it… books!

But, for Christmas we put the books away and filled the shelves with presents. Not only does it look festive, but also keeps our wrapped presents nicely away from the puppy at home.

Christmas artwork decoration ideas

Pulling the art around the house into the festive vibe can be done a couple ways. The most obvious is to wrap them, but I don’t love this look, so instead we hung wreaths over all our artwork around the house.

We hung fresh pine in the dinning room, felt ball wreaths in the living room and a deco mesh wreath in my daughter’s room.

Also adding a few fun details to the artwork, like sticking a Santa hat sticker on a beach scene easily pulls the artwork into the season and make everyone smile as well.

Christmas Mantel Decorating Ideas

Our mantels tend to give the biggest umph of all to our Christmas room decoration ideas. We went simple on the pink mantel this year (last year we filled it with balloons!). A nordic pine, a funky green planted pine, bottle brush trees and candles create a mantel that brings joy without being overbearing to the room.

This garland we plan to use all year long as it changes with the seasons effortlessly.

Christmas Bedroom decoration ideas

In our bedroom we went soft and white with the electric fireplace mantel. If you don’t have a fireplace in the bedroom, I sincerely suggest it (see how we DIY’d this one right here). Our DIY bench with piled velvet gives a soft place for setting gifts and the colorful DIY candle holders with origami stars add a pop of fun & color to the wall.

Lastly, in the bedrooms it’s really all about comfort. So pulling out the biggest, warmest blankets and layering them for texture will make any space feel festive and ready for all the Christmas room decoration ideas you can dream up. A sweet new puppy never hurts either. 😉

When Christmas comes around, we are all surrounded by a kind of magical feeling, the streets and houses are decorated, people are happy, and of course, we love taking photos, either to create Christmas cards or simply to create sweet memories. If you are here it is because you like to create composites, beautiful images that always catch our eye. But sometimes it is not easy to get a good image, making composites is not always easy, especially at the beginning, and to achieve the most beautiful effects you need many Photoshop skills . although this is not always true! I have created a kit ready for you to get a Christmas image easily, you only need to extract the subjects from your photo and place them there, and even this is not necessary, you can simply place your photo there!

In the following video I show you how easy it is to use this kit. I provide the PSD, and also the files separately in case you are using a program other than Photoshop, such as Gimp.

You can watch the tutorial showing how to extract the model from the original photo here: How to cut out a subject from a background

Do not forget that in the shop there are others psd and similar kits of windows and snow globes!

How to create a christmas tree forest

Christmas tree dealers across the country are reporting shortages this year. But, for some, it’s not an issue.

A patch of forest in Northern California is home to living trees that leave their year-round home to go off on holiday excursions.

This year, Monica Hudson is renting out nearly 700 trees.

“Slowly but surely, the field is getting more empty,” Hudson said. “This tree, for example, has been to Christmas four years in a row. This will be the fifth time it’s going to be spending the holidays with a family.”

This is her 12th season seeing off trees as they’re delivered to homes within a service area that includes Silicon Valley.

Tree loyalty drives much of Hudson’s business.

Diane Shapiro says she sought out a living Christmas tree after her son, Aidan, noticed a grove of trees being cut down to make way for new condos on the drive to school.

“He’s like, ‘But why would they cut the trees down? It’s sad that they’re cutting all the trees down,'” Shapiro said. “And then December rolled around. I really didn’t want to bring in a cut Christmas tree after that experience because I thought, ‘What am I going to tell my son?'”

But finding a living tree that could be delivered to San Francisco wasn’t easy. The first two companies she used went out of business. Hudson agreed to ship to her from two hours away in Monterey if she could recruit seven other renters in her area, which she did.

NEWSY’S JASON BELLINI: Why do you get the same tree?

DIANE SHAPIRO: It’s fun. It’s like it’s kind of like the tree becomes part of your family.

AIDAN SHAPRIO: Yeah. We get to see the tree grow until it gets too tall, then we have to get a new tree.

BELLINI: All these trees right here — where do they come from?

MONICA HUDSON: We have a grower in Oregon that starts them for us. We are here in Carmel and the central coast of California, and there is a water shortage. So, for us to start the trees from seedlings that are about the size of your index finger and water them for five years or six years before they get to be that size would be prohibitive.

BELLINI: Will they ever be able to retire from duty and be in the ground?

HUDSON: When they get too big we try to find a home for them . a retirement home in the ground. When they are maybe 10 feet, we sell them off, or sometimes give them away to be planted. That’s the hope, is that the trees will go on living.

That’s not the fate of the nearly 30 million trees cut down in the U.S. each year for Christmas. Most end up in landfills. The industry says its practices are sustainable; the trees recyclable.

BELLINI: When people rent a tree, they have responsibility for that tree?

HUDSON: They do.

BELLINI: What happens if they’re not watering it every day? You said they need to water it every day, right?

HUDSON: That is correct. Yes. And we do have an agreement with our customers. They sign the paperwork that they promised to water every day. If that doesn’t happen and the trees show signs of stress, we have to notify them and they can be liable for the cost of the tree.

Hudson estimates that happens with less than 1% of her rentals.

For the 30-day rental, a big tree could cost around $200, but Hudson isn’t getting rich doing the job. She says it’s an incredible amount of hard work for a not so great return financially, but it does help something else.

“We’ve had these fires in California,” Hudson said. “Some people have wanted to reforest areas, and that has brought us to the realization — we would have no problem finding places for them to grow for the rest of their life. And that’s why we are experimenting very successfully with Redwood trees.”

One of the gifts of renting a tree is the fact it may well outlive the people for whom they create Christmas memories.

This year, nearly all of the trees have families.

Cork stoppers are one of the most versatile objects to use in decoration. Small, resistant and of an inimitable color, together or separately, they make them beautiful to create any type of object or give them a different use than the one for which they were created.

If there is a special time to use them, it is the holidays, but if we add the touch of Christmas, you will not be able to help but think of keeping them to use in these dates very close.

Christmas Wreath with Stoppers

How about welcoming your guests with this gorgeous Christmas wreath? You can use just about anything to get that festive touch we love so much.

If you’re going to the fields or forest, try to choose materials from nature, leaves, pine cones, branches … anything will fit perfectly. You can also recycle other elements that you have at home.

Centerpiece With Corks

If there is something that gives a different touch to the Christmas table, it is the candles. Ideally, they are placed in strategic locations, either with lanterns or other containers, but the table cannot miss an ornate centerpiece, including one or more candles.

You can arrange the stoppers around the sail itself, vertically or horizontally, or at an angle. To hold them in place, you can opt for a ribbon or rope, but they can also be glued, depending on the design you prefer.

If you want something lavish, feel free to add and experiment with different materials.

Christmas Tree to Hang With Corks

If you always like to place the Christmas tree in your home, then do not miss the opportunity to hang a small Christmas tree made with corks cut to give the shape of a tree between its branches.

Glue them together, and add stars or gems, or you can even paint them with glitter paint. Choose the pattern to suit your style. They are beautiful and add a very warm touch to the whole thing!

Christmas Ornaments with Cork

How to create a christmas tree forest

Spherical shapes are very attractive in decoration. They stand out everywhere and are the center of all eyes. For this reason, there is nothing better than to keep all the corks to create Christmas balls of different sizes, in order to arrange them in full view.

The first thing to do is to buy or make your own baubles. It’s best to choose the same type of corks to give that unique round effect.

Then glue them together with glue or adhesive, depending on the material of the inner ball. If you like a more rustic touch, leave them with their original color, and if not, decorate them however you like.

Dolls with Cork

If what you like most about Christmas is to have a tree full of beads of all kinds, try to make them fun figures created from corks.

With ribbons, strings, fabrics, markers and a few other materials, you can make some really original dolls. You just need to have a little patience and be clever in arranging all the elements.

Small Christmas Tree with Corks

If you are tired of having a Christmas tree in your living room that takes up a lot of space, decide to make a custom one with the corks you have accumulated.

To make one, you will need to have a base, which can be wood, cardboard, glass… which you can find circular. From there, create different layers with the corks, as if it were a large cake. Decreasing their number as you go up, and placing each top tier towards the center.

A craft that both children and adults will enjoy. For a fun afternoon any day!

Small Trees with Pineapples and Corks

It’s not hard to create a small forest at home using pine cones picked up in the field, and decorating them with green paint to mimic Christmas trees. If you add a Star of Bethlehem to the glass, you already have a complete set to spend the holidays in a cozy environment with details.

Christmas tree dealers across the country are reporting shortages this year. But, for some, it’s not an issue.

This year, nearly all of the trees have families.
