5 Alternative Christmas tree ideas

5 Alternative Christmas tree ideas

Alternative Christmas trees are a great idea if you’re lacking space or quite simply just bored of the traditional spruce. Let’s be real for a minute… most of us don’t really get a chance to spend much time at home over Christmas. In between your various work/friends/gym Christmas parties and your regulation visits to various relatives, how much time is left to curl up on the sofa in front of a movie nibbling on mince pies with the scent of fir tree filling your living room? By the time you actually get a chance to enjoy your festive masterpiece, the needles have dropped and it ends up outside for weeks until the bin men collect it.

As much as I love real Christmas trees, it’s not for everyone. This year I’m toying with alternative Christmas tree ideas…

Wire hanging tree

A contemporary alternative to traditional fir trees, these Scandi inspired trees come pre-lit so you can just plug in and enjoy! They’re also weather-proof and can be used outdoors too for your own mini midwinter forest.

An ultra-minimalist alternative Christmas tree idea. A lovely option for a kid’s bedroom too as they can use their creative personalisation skills to embellish this Christmas tree wall sticker. It can easily be removed without leaving any marks. That’ll keep your landlord happy ; )

Pom pom Christmas tree

Pom pom Christmas tree

A bright a cheerful alternative to the traditional Christmas tree. This is a real statement piece not for the faint-hearted. Made with wire and rubber foam on a painted wooden base. Each tree is hand wrapped with cotton yarn and decorated with over eighty fluffy pom pom balls. It comes in a few colour-ways but if you’re going to go down this route, why not go all out with this multi-colour pom pom tree?

A large part of bringing your personal touch to your Christmas décor is through the accessories. And Christmas is certainly not the time to hold back – so let your inner-elf take over and go for it!!

    What fabulously creative Christmas tree alternatives! One year we had a Tim-Burtoneqsue style wire tree made with salvaged fencing wire that had been through the village bonfire and then cleaned. :)

    If I was to have an alternative Christmas tree I’d go for the silver birch one. They look ideal for small spaces but I’m not sure I’d have one over the traditional ones.
