Downloadable Woodland Vintage Botanical Prints For Free

The spring makes me think of flowers and tropical botanicals. Whereas for fall, I think of more woodland vintage botanical prints.

Pine cones and acorns make me think of fall and I love to decorate my home with these vintage botanical images. Also living in the Northern Hemisphere, woodland foliage is the one I’m most used to.

I think a gallery wall of botanical prints can look amazing on the living room wall. If you are looking for some vintage botanical print gallery wall inspiration you should check out this post from the Painted Hive.

Or you can craft with these images and make some gorgeous bunting with the woodland prints to decorate your home for fall. Like this bunting from fleaingFrance.com.

Acorns and Oaks

Acorns are a great symbol of autumn and fall. It’s not just the squirrels that eat them in the past they were an important food source for Native American Indians.

The acorn was a popular motif in Roman architecture. Its also a common symbol in Scandinavian art and used as an adornment on furniture, jewelry and cutlery. It also appears on finials at many churches including Westminster Abbey.

Pine, fir, conifer and spruces

There are lots of different types of conifer/pine trees. These pine cones are often collected and used for home decorations and wreaths. There are hundreds of arts and crafts on pinterest using pine cones. They also make for great vintage botanical prints.

6. Norwegian Spruce – Billeder af nordens flora 1917

This is probably one of the most common spruces to be used as Christmas trees.

7. Brazilian Pine – 1824

Even though this isn’t a typical shape for a pine cone this has to be one of my favourite vintage pine cone drawings.

HI Claire, Is it possible to fix the link for the Austrian Oak? I cannot open the site. Do you have any companions to this print? I am looking for the paler background and soft colors of this oak. Thanks, Lee
