Tis the season to be jolly! If you love Christmas, you probably also love the scent of a real Christmas tree. But living in the centre of a big city usually means you don’t have the space at home to fit a traditional tree.
But don’t be discouraged though. We have been scouring the internet for cool alternatives to substitute the traditional Christmas tree without taking up too much space.
Wall trees are our favourites – they are super easy to do, don’t come with a bazillion ornaments and won’t be needle-shedding evergreen into your home.
Wooden wall trees
These types of wall trees usually come in different sizes and can either be flamed or nature. You can decorate the tree yourself to your heart’s content.
Wall trees made of branches
It doesn’t get more minimalist than this : a few pine branches that become a tree. We love the fact that you actually keep the sight and smell of Christmas.
Trees made of tape
All you need to re-create this tree is some coloured tape. You can pick different colours and designs and layer them in the shape of a Christmas tree. No need to decorate and it doesn’t get flatter than this!
This one is made with Washi tape, a Japanese stationery tape used to decorate packages.
Wall stickers are the perfect way to bring some christmas charm to your home and deck the walls!
If you’re not the most creative steady handed type, then you can always go for a template or wall kit. They are perfect for small spaces and look very eye-catching.
Wall trees for book worms
It might not be the first thing that crosses your mind, but did you know that you can also use your existing book shelves to create a wall tree? If you have the books, why not use them.
String lights wall tree
This idea is so simple and we all know Christmas lights do the trick! Simply create a zig-zag pattern in a tree shape and add some ornaments and a star at the top.
There are so many ways to make your own alternative Christmas tree. You can upcycle your wall tree from things around the house like post cards of pictures.
There is absolutely no limit to what you can do!
