Tree Faces - Unique Yard Decorations

Ever look at a tree and thought it was looking back at you? It is possible if you are viewing a tree face decoration. This isn't an animated tree, it's a live tree decorated with a "face" to show some personality.

Tree face decorations are becoming more popular every day. A tree face, or forest face, are some clever decorations that are simple to put up and cost very little. They also make excellent gifts for the hard-to-buy-for person. Imagine walking through your yard, seeing this tree "speaking" to you - the person who gifted you with the decoration will immediately come to mind and there will be a smile on your face.

The first time I noticed a tree face I thought it very peculiar, but then I was actually looking for them and am surprised to see how many I find in my travels. A tree face is a very unique gift especially for an outdoor-loving person.

Here is a look at some of the choices for these yard decorations.

Types of Tree Faces

Add Some Character and Personality to Your Yard

There are a lot of different tree faces around. Some are good for different holidays. You can find some spooky looking tree faces that look like the talking trees in a Disney movie of some sort. Those are great for Halloween or the fall months. Some others are a more wintertime or holiday season theme. You can find Santa faces and dress up the trees in your front yard to greet the holiday visitors to your home. There are also several sport varieties to help you shout out for your favorite team.

Some other very popular tree faces dress up the yard to look like a slightly off kilter natureland. There are all sorts of woodland characters, from squirrels to large moose heads complete with antlers. Get one today an give your back yard the look of a cast of wild looking wild creatures!

Talking Trees

On TV and In the Movies

Movie goers are used to seeing talking trees especially in Disney or Sci-Fi movies. Sometimes they are scary, sometimes they are funny but always it seems they are unique and easy to remember. Who can forget the beautiful advise given by Grandmother Willow in Pocahontas? Help your yard "come to life" with these tree faces. It's the next best thing to a talking tree!

Or how about this tree face bird house for something different? The birds enter through the nostrils of the nose and nest inside the head. Wow!

"just hanging out on this tree!"
"just hanging out on this tree!"

Show Your Team Spirit In Your Own Backyard

Professional Sports or Collegiate Tree Faces

One other very popular style of tree face are those featuring different sports teams. You can find a tree face for almost every brand of professional sport, as well as college teams. This includes Major League Baseball, the National Football League, and the National Hockey League. Just about any favorite professional team is represented and available in tree face form to fill your yard with spirit!

The Chicago Cubs have us on a roll in 2016, just one year past the prediction in the 1980 movie "Back To The Future." They are breaking several records held from 1945 (the last time they were in a World Series) and 1908 (the last time they won the World Series). Celebrate by creating your own Cub tree face!

Team Spirit Tree Faces

No sports offering would be complete without the college football scene. Major conferences and major teams like the LSU Tigers or the USC Trojans are favorites, along with teams from other conferences like the Big 12 or the Big 10. Look around, find your alma mater among the many major collegiate programs.

Support your favorite college or pro team in your own backyard with these sporty tree faces. They also make excellent gifts. As shown on the right, The Ohio State University is perennially ranked in the top of the CFP list year after year. Currently, they sit at #1 for 2015. However, my favorite team is the TCU Horned Frogs. Go Frogs!

      There are some of these in our local arboretum, the first time I saw when it scared the life out of me! Now I look out for them because they make me smile.

      These are a little freaky! They remind me of the tree scenes from the Lord of the Rings!

      LOVE tree faces, I had one my father gave me. When we moved across the country I forgot to take it off the tree. Two years later while visiting I noticed a face on one of my father's trees. Apparently he went back to the house for a last look after we left and took it. He forgot to tell me and tacked it onto his tree. I was so happy. It was like a long lost friend. I have it on my tree here at my new house.
