The newest and not to mention cutest baby decor trend is here, and it’s taking the lovely and leafy form of woodland nurseries.
Little people need beautiful boudoirs too, and whether you’re preparing for your first or your fifth bundle of joy we can bet you’re deciding how to decorate their nursery.
The woodland nursery trend is perfect for a little one’s first bedroom because it works for any gender, so if you’re waiting to find out the sex of your baby the old fashioned way or you’re following the gender neutral trend, this will work for your family.
Although it looks impressive, creating your own mini woodland is surprisingly easy and can be lots of fun with some simple DIY touches. Think soothing green tones, woody accessories and lots of adorable woodland animals.
Here’s eight ways you can recreate a woodland nursery in your own home using some DIY touches!
1. Branch clothing hooks
Considering how adorable newborns’ clothes are, it makes sense to show them off! Let your little one’s finery take centre stage with some tree-inspired clothing hooks, a great form of storage and wonderfully woodland-y.

2. Woodland-themed wall mural
If you want to give your woodland nursery the ‘wow factor’ try a woodland animal-themed wall mural, like this Bambi lookalike. If you consider yourself a bit of an artist, why not put paintbrush to plaster? For those feeling less brave a little search online will present you with easy transfers and stencils that you can use at home.
3. Leafy lighting touches
We love this idea to create a soft glow in your baby’s room whilst tying into the woodland nursery theme. It’s super easy and inexpensive to do, simply buy a fake ivy leaf decoration, a string of fairy lights and intertwine the two.

4. Branch mobile
This baby name mobile is a simple but beautiful touch for your woodland nursery. It’s as easy as it looks and can be customised to display whatever you like, whether it’s your child’s name or an assortment of decorations.

5. Woodland wallpaper
If wall murals aren’t your thing why not try some woodland-themed wallpaper instead? Arguably easier and just as beautiful, choose a simple tree theme or something more aimed at children with a woodland focus to make an instant impact.
6. Branch shelves
Along with your new baby comes a lot of items you never needed before, so make your storage needs as beautiful as possible with some feature shelving. Paint the outline of your tree on to the wall first and you can then see where you need to position your branch shelves.
7. Rustic tipi
Every child wants a den, and a stylish yet fun tipi like this one is ideal for your woodland theme. From a practical perspective this is a super cute place for your kids to play or read and it looks great too.
8. Your own woodland creature
What’s the perfect finishing touch to a woodland nursery we hear you ask? Well your very own little woodland creature of course! As if they aren’t cute enough, try dressing them up as a mini deer or fox to really make yourself feel Pinterest worthy!

Knitting is the way to go with this one, so if you’re an avid knitter you just need to find the pattern of a cute woodland-style animal to get started.
You will need to purchase a pattern online and they are pretty easy to find, we like these ones in particular:
