Don’t for one second think you can’t have a Christmas tree because you don’t have enough space. If your home is a little too squeezy for a full-size tree, there’s some super cool alternatives on the market.
We’ve scoured for brilliant minimal space solutions, plus a couple of DIY festive fountains which are sure to bring festive cheer for a little footprint.
Now, if you’ve got a green thumb (or are very good friends with one), be sure to see these succulent Christmas trees we’re loving! There’s still PLENTY of time to order one or even make one (yes, we tell you how). You can sit smug, knowing you have the most beautiful living Christmas tree on the street!
10 alternative Christmas trees
The Adairs Hanging Branch Christmas Tree ($79.99.) can easily be hung from a wall and be decorated by the kids. It delivers an on-trend Scandi vibe, complementing your décor AND there’s no fluffing in sight!
If it’s a hit with the kids you want, this tree delivers it in buttery soft spades. Kmart’s Decorate Your Own Felt Christmas Wall Tree is just $8 and includes loads of coloured felt decorations to pimp your tree out.
Perhaps it’s just a countertop tree you seek? Head to Typo for this funky – and very pink – Mini Christmas Tree Pack ($14.99). It might be small in size, with mini baubles and a star to boot but it packs a fun festive punch!
From one of our favourite shopping hives, the Kmart Hanging Christmas Tree ($15) is a budget STEAL. You’ll have plenty of money left in the pocket for pudding and presents. Merry Christmas!
Thinking right outside the box, the Vinyl Design Australian Christmas Tree ($88) is a tree you can stick to your wall and admire for all of December. It’s a brilliant option if you have grabby babies/toddlers and pets who just can’t help themselves with touching things they shouldn’t. Completely removable, you can even choose your tree vinyl sticker colour.
Balsam Hill is renown for their thick, plush, life-like dreamy Christmas trees, but did you know they also kick goals on minimalist trees? The 1.83m tall Winter Birch Twig Tree ($269) is pre-lit and is as elegant as they come. Swoon!
Want something easy to store and takes about 5 minutes to put up and take down, with time to spare? Adairs’ Printed Hanging White Christmas Tree ($10, on sale) fits the brief! Dotted with sweet gold spots, all that’s left to do is wait for the big man in red to pay a visit.
For a rustic look, Provincial Home Living’s Kringle Xmas Tree ($99.95) is the perfect alternative to a traditional tree. Hang and tie decorations from this 1.27m tall structure or weave fairy lights all around it for a stunning look.
Of course, there are DIY options too! If you’re a little bit handy with a hammer, check out this awesome DIY Pallet Christmas Tree tutorial. It’s an awesome, Christmas time addition to your living area or even outside.
A trip to Bunnings will result in the most gorgeous alternative Christmas tree – a PVC pipe tree! Martha Stewart shows us just how it’s done and would make for a brilliant school holiday project to boot. PLUS you can enjoy it year after year!
