The holidays are just around the corner! Soon your friends and family will be gathering for eggnog, presents, and laughs. By now you’ve probably started decorating for the festivities. Many people feel pressured to do a lot of decorating and to make it traditional and big, like the stereotypical giant, shining, lit up Christmas trees. But you don’t always have to do all that. Don’t have the room? Pesky cats always climbing and knocking over the tree? Do you simply want to try something different and unique? Take a look below at these great alternatives to the traditional tree.
Decorate a plant or tree that you already have growing in your home.
Substitute with a poinsettia.
Try some DIY table-top trees.
2D trees can work great as well! Add one to your wall and pile up the presents in front of it.
You can even decorate them with the kids!
Use Christmas lights to create a tree on your wall.
You can also use Christmas baubles.
You can commercially purchase wall decals shaped like trees too. This one happens to be a chalkboard decal.
Create your own decal by printing out an image of a Christmas tree.
Use doilies or hand-cut paper snowflakes to create a tree in your window.
Use what you have outside!
Or, just use what you have around the house. Like this tripod.
