Wooden Autumn Forest

It’s autumn in the Thicket and the gnomes enjoy a quiet stroll in the colorful autumn woods. Using our Wooden Autumn Forest pattern, make a tree or an entire forest for your gnomes and fairies or use them here and there around the house to simply enhance your Fall decor.

Our Autumn Forest pattern includes the template for cutting out the small and large trees. For general directions and for the pattern for the small and large bases, use the tutorial for the Wooden Apple Orchard. These trees work well with Ostherimer and Holztiger pieces and with dollhouses and gnome dwellings. Get the pattern for the Wooden Autumn Forest HERE and the general directions for making wooden toys HERE. Enjoy!

  1. This is one of the sweetest scenes I’ve ever seen. Your children are so lucky you have so many talents. Power tools scare the Dickens out of me so I won’t be buying any in the foreseeable future. And yet it would cost so much money to buy these from Osterimer or Holztiger. I’m wondering if I can find someone I know willing to barter skills. I’ll have to look into that. Thanks for all your hard work and for what has to be the best crafting blog on the web! xox

  2. These are amazing!!!!! I am in love! Fall /Autumn is my favorite season, and I dont think I have ever seen toy trees that display this season!!! If we could I would get a saw and do these… this economy does not let us at this time.
    But I love that you are soooo creative! They really are amazing!!! What no red trees? hehe! Cant wait to see what else you make!!!
    Sending fall love!

  3. Takes my breath away. Really. What little kid wouldn’t want to get their hands on that. I know I do! It is beautiful and awe inspiring and so you!!! LOVE it.

  4. I just love this. I think I am going to have to sweet talk my dad into making this, or really start practicing with his scroll saw. Maybe I can just talk him into cutting a whole forest (autumn trees, apple orchard and pine trees all at once…)

    Now I could actually leave this up year round in the sewing room, just for me… since I love autumn and do not think it lasts long enough.

  5. These are beautiful! What did you use to stain/paint them? On the apple orchard, you mention milk paint, but I really like the look of stain. Plus, I had a “milk paint incident” this summer, such that I will never use milk paint again (though I love the concept of milk paint and really should never say “never”).

    1. I did use milk paint on these. It tends to look like stain because you can control the amount of pigment you use. Although, I have been using the soy paint we carry in our shop a lot, too. We just got a new line of autumn colors. I found I can water them down and get much the same look. Our shop will be open again at some point in October… we will make the announcement when we get all our supplies in. There are some very pretty colors that would give you the same look.

      BTW… I'm curious as to how one has a milk paint incident??? 🙂

  6. Wow! These are amazing. I decided to make them. It was first adventure ever in wood work. Bought a scroll saw, watched some you tube videos on how to use it, and set out to work on the trees. They came out amazing, and it was a project my Pre teen kids helped on! We love our trees!! I am using them for our Thanksgiving table decor, but my daughter wants to make an entire gnome scene now. We have decided on a Christmas forest with you gnome people for the mantle. I can’t wait! Thank you for sharing. I just love your blog and Facebook page.

  7. Hello,

    Do you remember the color name you use for these autumn trees ? (the yellow ones, orange ones and trunk)

    I used pumpkin, mustard and driftwood. You can see the whole array of milk paint colors I purchased HERE. http://www.milkpaintsamples.com/colors.htm In all the years I’ve been buying milk paints for the small wooden projects I’ve always just bought the small sample packets. A little goes a long way. Have fun.
