Christmas Tree Alternatives


Wall Christmas Tree by All The Luck in the World

You don’t have room for a couch, let alone a tree.


Who made this? Was it you? Tell me in comments so the Internet can laude you.

Or maybe pine trees don’t exist in your country.

If you’re looking for options, I made a pinboard of festive Christmas Tree Alternatives. But won’t you miss that Christmas tree smell? Oh wait. Thanks, science.

    We have a couple tall manzanita limbs in our living room, leftover from our wedding a couple years ago. So far we’ve just decorate them with ornaments and call it a Christmas Manzanita. Dead tree year-round!

    Oh my gosh, THANK YOU. I have a super rambunctious preschooler and a super adventurous toddler, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to have a tree that isn’t so…knock-over-able. You have saved the day!
