I still remember my first year of college. I was in small dorm suit, sharing the space with three other girls and we really wanted to decorate for the Holidays. Luckily, I had a Charlie Brown Christmas tree to make the place as jolly as can be. But, since then, I have gathered some of my favorite alternative Christmas trees to decorate for the holidays – even for the smallest spaces!
Wrap It & Stack It
Why not show off those wrapping skills and create your alternative Christmas tree from the gifts themselves? Shelf them or stack them, people will love the tree, all wrapped in bows.
This one is a littler more festive and can be done with a lot more colors. Whether you have a classic red Christmas or a Colorful Holiday, pick the perfect paper to match in all ints fringe glory.
Hang in There
Sometimes we just need to grab a few lights and string them with ornaments. These hanging Christmas trees are so beautiful and still so classy.
