Planning a woodland nursery or looking to find some unique forest-themed products for your baby? From hedgehogs and toadstools to foxes and deer, here are 11 charming woodland finds to help your baby rock the forest friend trend.
Decoy Lab has this woodland theme down, offering the most amazing hand carved treasures for every forest animal you can think of. Their hedgehog clock is sure to be a conversation piece in your nursery, perfectly combining retro charm with modern minimalism.
I found the shop My Eco Baby when I was pregnant for my third child and instantly fell in love with the designs even though I don't cloth diaper. Shop owner Gabriella creates each of her pieces from upcycled sweaters and offers an impressive selection of applique designs. We own both a pair of shorties and longies, but she also makes skirts, legwarmers and snap-on cloth diapers for babies.
It's no surprise Stacie Bloomfield, the artist behind Gingiber, is becoming widely recognized for her unique illustrations which she offers in a number of home products including prints and pillows. We love her handmade fox pillow, but she also makes a brown bear and blue owl version--additional friends to rock the woodland theme.
This colorful toadstool garland is crocheted and needle felted from wool and cotton yarn. Available in several different color schemes from Astash Toys on Etsy, these little toadstools add a subtle woodland touch to any nursery or child's room.
This porcelain bunny from Land of Nod is a great fixture in any nursery--a sweet figurine by day and an enchanting nightlight by night. Also available in hedgehog, squirrel and bird, this nightlight has an added bonus--it's only $10.95.
These mini push toy friends are great both for play or to display on a nursery shelf. Imagination Kids hand carves all of their toys from sustainably harvested wood and finishes them with homemade natural wood polish (beeswax, jojoba oil and essential oils) and non-toxic paints. In addition to these adorable minis, Imagination Kids offers larger woodland friends as well.
I've forever been meaning to thank Santa for finding these Sew Heart Felt fox slippers for us last Christmas (okay, he told me--they're from Alex and Alexa). My daughter loves the fuzzy white tail that sticks up in the back, and we love the way she smiles every time these sweet friends are on her feet.
So I gasped a little when I found these adorable toadstool booties from Funky Shapes. Ideal for both boys and girls, these little shoes are cute enough not only to be worn but saved and displayed as a keepsake. Each is hand stitched with ECO felt and Japanese cotton fabric.
Meet Chester the Raccoon, a distinguished member of the Walnut Animal Society--a collection of huggable handmade forest friends created by Lauren Bradshaw. Made of natural and locally-sourced materials when possible, each society member is unique. And the best part? There's a line of adorable clothes available that makes accessorizing these friends half the fun!
Talk about a nursery statement piece. Bam. This deer crib sheet is 100% cotton, screen printed by hand and doesn't need any other crib accessories because the buck stops here. Offered by the Etsy shop Katy and Zucchini.
