Community Post: 20 Alternative Christmas Tree Ideas

1. Christmas Tree Wall Sticker

It doesn’t take up any space, requires no extra decorations and peels off. Looks pretty cool too.

2. Lots of Little Things Christmas Tree

Another one that takes up no space and looks awesome too. You could even leave it up year-round or change the shape of it to suit each season.

3. Green Things and Mirror Christmas Tree

All the green of a normal tree without needles or tacky plastic. Also useful if you happen to have loads of green things and a spare mirror lying around.

4. Stick In A Pot Christmas Tree

A bit on the minimalist/half-assed side, but looks good in the right setting and no needles.

5. Upside Down/Corner Christmas Tree

Doesn’t take up any floor-space and perfect for fans of Day Of The Triffids as it looks like it’s crawling into your room. it also looks like something else if you have a dirty mind.

6. Driftwood Canvas Christmas Tree

Another space saver, this one even has inbuilt lights, so no untangling/swearing when decorating. In fact, it doesn’t even need decorating. Win-win!

7. Acorn Christmas Tree

Say ‘Nuts!’ to decorating and all the other pain-in-backside issues of Christmas trees with this idea. It’s A-Ok (or should that be ‘O-ak’?).

8. Frame Christmas Tree

Looks pretty cool, and, to stop people peeking at their presents, you could even string it with some barbed-wire. Solutions!

9. Ladder Christmas Tree

Don’t know what to do with that spare ladder that’s always taking up unnecessary cupboard space? You do now.

10. The Christmas Tree That Isn’t There

Spooky, and requires a lot of hooks in the ceiling presumably, this can also serve as indoor wind chimes. Nice.

11. Wine Cork Christmas Tree

If nothing else, it’s an excuse to drink a lot of wine, and that’s why it’s an awesome Christmas tree idea.

12. Draw Your Own Christmas Tree

Just cover one wall with chalkboard paint, and have at it. Can be whatever size you want and you get to create all of the decorations. It’s even fun to dispose of.

13. Baby Christmas Tree

Ok, it’ll cause you problems in the future, but for now, it’s a tiny amount of needles and you get a new house-plant to boot.

14. Book Christmas Tree

Might lead to some empty bookshelves over the festive period, but will make you look well-read. And still no needles.

15. Dalek Christmas Tree

Because nothing says ‘Christmas’ like a psychopathic alien with a plunger. A great tree for all Whovians out there.

16. Mountain Dew Christmas Tree

Well, it’s green. Delicious too. Easy to get rid of – how often do you get the chance to say “I’m just drinking the Christmas tree.”

17. Godzilla Christmas Tree

Perhaps a little impractical for the living room, but it will keep those yuletide visits from Mothra at bay.

18. Coat Hanger Christmas Tree

For the truly lazy and disinterested. Your clothes might have to spend some time in a heap on the floor, but if this sort of tree appeals to you, the chances are that they already do.

19. Wooden Pallet Christmas Tree

Nails, wood and that’s it. If you have loads of pallets lying around, this’ll play. Splinters are the only risk (and in my mind, those are still preferable to needles).

20. Spam Christmas Tree

Pros: It’s Spam. Cons: You have to try not to eat it before Christmas comes round.
