You don’t have to traverse mountains to enjoy the tranquility of nature. If buzzing mosquitoes and ten-mile hikes don’t appeal to you, bring the outdoors inside! Become one with nature by decorating your home with potted plants and furniture made from natural fibers such as wicker and hemp. Or, simply use elements found in nature to add to your décor! Fill mason jars with beach sand, or use rocks as paperweights and shells as table decorations.

One easy way to feel like you’re in a forest is by incorporating faux antlers. Save a buck by making these Pottery Barn inspired “deer antlers” by Craftberry Bush out of a fallen branch, tin foil and clay. Stay au naturel and keep the deer antlers brown, or add an unexpected element by painting them neon, adding glitter or whitewashing the tips.

How will you personalize your antlers?
