15 Christmas Tree Alternatives for Small Spaces
I love Christmas trees. I love the way they smell, I love going to the tree lot to pick one out, and I love decorating them.
Last year, I went home for Christmas so we ended up not getting a Christmas tree for our apartment. I still wanted to decorate though, so I rounded up a few Christmas tree alternatives. I like that most of these don’t require any floor space, just an empty wall – a big plus if you’re decorating a small space.
This year we’re hosting Christmas in Portland for both our families so we’ll definitely be getting a tree. But I still love these ideas and may have to find a corner for one of these lovely tree alternatives!

Last year, we were driving by a tree lot that had a huge pile of cuttings from Christmas trees out by the street. I made S. stop the car so I could jump out and grab a few free boughs and stuck them in a vase, inspired by these cool minimalist trees.

I love these two rustic wall trees made with branches! They seem easy enough to pull together and you still have a place to hang ornaments or lights.

Love this minimalist wood tree!
Just a couple strings of lights = Christmas tree!

Three cool options for washi tape trees. I have so much washi tape, I may have to make one of these happen somewhere this year.

This painted geometric tree is awesome. Plus you can save it and bring it out year after year!

If you have a huge chalkboard wall and don’t draw an awesome Christmas tree on it you’re definitely doing something wrong.

I loved this wall collection tree and decided to create my own last year. Growing up, my siblings and I each had our own mini Christmas tree for our rooms, and always got an ornament in our stockings every year (a tradition that continues today.) So I have a small collection of unique ornaments from over the years, dating back to when I was a baby.
I put my tree up on my entry wall and hung my ornaments with washi tape. Not perfect, but I was just glad to have a place to display them. I love unpacking them each year!
This is another cool idea using ornaments. The ombre effect would look great with any color. I would make this with these blue ombre ornaments.
This string art tree is another favorite, plus it gives you a place to display Christmas cards!

Last but not least, this wall hanging from Ikea is only $5 a yard! Definitely one of the easiest and cheapest trees to display.
Do you get a tree every year? Would you ever choose an alternative tree instead of (or in addition to) a real tree?
