Author Carrie Brown’s “Bees’ Tree” was inspired by our endangered pollinators. Hand-felted bees nestle between pine boughs and sprigs of rosemary. Small electric lights make the tree even more "buzzworthy."
If you like, put a jar of honey underneath your tree to make Christmas even sweeter. Check the water in your container and replenish as needed. You may also want to add fresh pine boughs or rosemary stems if your first batch of cuttings start to dry out.
It's just as important to add organic texture around your tree as it is on it. As gift wrapping is under way, add pinecones onto your wrapped boxes with ribbon as rustic embellishments. The rough, natural appeal of the pinecones will break up the straight-lined look of the boxes.
Celebrate the winter season with a nature-inspired Christmas tree. Mix in a variety of pine cones, leaves and birds throughout the branches, as well as a few metallic elements to add interest and sparkle.

Create a fun and modern Christmas tree arrangement with a few small natural objects combined with some bright colors. Hot glue pebbles, acorns, pine cones, twigs or other natural elements onto a styrofoam cone base. Once the cone is completely covered use a heavy coat of acrylic paint to color your Christmas tree. You can make all of your trees the same color, or create an arrangement of complementing colors to fit your decor.
This spectacular rustic-modern living room, from the HGTV Dream Home 2014, features a soaring A-frame ceiling and a striking wall of windows that showcases a wide grove of pine trees.

This simple Country Christmas tree is ornamented with pine cones, brown glass balls, bronze disco balls, and letter and number stencils for a unique twist on traditional tree decorations.

The inspiration for this home, the Italian stone pine tree in the backyard, can be seen in two separate spots in this space. The trunk is visible out the far windows, and the canopy is visible through the skylight. A long feature wall of cabinets stretches from the entry all the way to the kitchen, offering ample storage throughout the space. The cabinets hide everything from a coat closet at the entry to a refrigerator in the kitchen.
The animal-loving little boy wanted the wilderness in his space. After painting it the same greige as in the dining room, Sonal stuck on a vinyl decal world map from Wallums and hung a wicker antelope head from Target. Zane picked out the light (from All Modern): “He said it’s like stars in the sky,” says Sonal. With a tent from Crate & Kids and a throw with pine trees (also from Target), the room is almost a permanent campout.
