Forest Faces and Tree Faces - Great Outdoor Decorations for Your Backyard

What Is A Tree Face?

One novel decoration you see more and more these days are the simple decorations referred to as tree faces or forest faces. These are simple decorations that usually come in the pieces of a face, with the eyes, nose and mouth most often in separate parts that are simply nailed or attached to a tree, and give the illusion of a face for the tree. When you step back and look at a tree with a face on it, you have to chuckle or give that quirky little head movement that says, "What's that?"

Well most would agree this is a fun way to add character to your own yard, it could also be considered a type of landscaping, especially with a large amount of trees in your yard decorated in this fashion. So go ahead, have some fun with a tree face!

Types of Tree Faces

There are a big variety of themes for these tree faces. There are some that are a little spooky, and are great for Halloween. These look like talking trees and are reminiscent of the talking trees in some movies like the Lord of the Rings or Disney's Pocahontas.

Some look more like wild animals, like a duck sitting on the tree or the face of a moose sitting on the side of the tree. There are a lot of goofy characters to be found lurking on the side of your trees.

Seasonal Tree Faces - In addition to Halloween, another popular seasonal face is a Santa face to help bring the Christmas spirit to your landscaping. Greet your visitors with a smiling Santa.

NCAA - Finally, you can now find a large number of forest faces for your favorite college team. There is no limit!

Professional Sports Teams - There is a host of ways to show off your allegiance to your favorite professional sports teams. Most of the major baseball clubs like the St Louis Cardinals or the New York Yankees are available, along with pro football teams like the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers have forest or tree faces that you can either thrill or annoy your neighbors with.

Tree faces are a unique way to dress up the yard, and you can make them a seasonal decoration or a statement of allegiance as well. They also make great thank-you gifts for a host who has treated you to a great outdoor experience. Enjoy!

So you are an EBay affiliate. Never got into that myself but I sure liked the tree face at the tip of the EBay ads, the one by Rustic Spirit Art. Hmmm.

A Boston Red Sox tree face. OMG I've got to get my 98-year-old Auntie Gladys one. She's a huge Red Sox fan and avid gardener. Thanks for a great hub!
