Decorating our homes for the holidays is the perfect way to embrace all of those festive feels that we love. However, when it comes to Christmas Trees, the struggle can be real. Those of us with smaller living spaces can’t always accommodate a normal sized tree. Then there are some of us who aren’t huge fans of all the work that goes into putting up a tree, stringing lights, and finding a cohesive color scheme for our Christmas ornaments.

We hear you. Don’t worry, you can still deck the halls this season even if you happen to be a self-proclaimed minimalist or don’t have room for a regular sized Christmas Tree. This holiday season, we’re already seeing trends in smaller and unconventional Christmas Trees, and we are all about it. Swapping pine trees for pineapples anyone?

Here are 5 creative, yet simple, ways you can decorate this holiday season:

Pineapple Turned Christmas Tree

What’s not to love about this pineapple Christmas tree? Easy, unique, tropical, and you even get to eat it once Christmas is over. We think this is an all-around win.


Just Add Branches

Short on space? No problem. Simply place a few pine branches in a vase and dress them up as much or as little as you’d like. This takes no time at all and gives your home a fresh pine smell that will have you feeling like you just left the Christmas tree farm.

A Book Lover’s Christmas Tree

Love books? Love holiday decor? Combine those two loves of yours into the perfect book lover’s Christmas tree. Just stack your books in the shape of a Christmas tree, wrap with lights, and top with whichever festive piece of decor you desire. Tip: pick a low traffic corner of the room to avoid knocking your perfectly stacked books over.

Ladder Christmas Tree

If you have a ladder, then you have a Christmas tree. Wrap with garland, adorn with ornaments or both. Simple, and festive.


Christmas Tree For Your Wall

If you love having a real Christmas tree but don’t live near a tree farm, or have space for one, you can use pine tree clippings and command hooks to make your own version of a live Christmas tree.


Now pour some eggnog, #getoutthere, and get to decorating.
