Christmas trees are staples of the holiday season. They can be beautiful, unique and the beginning of many holiday traditions. But they can also take up a lot of space, be costly and sometimes just don’t fit your personal style. If you’re looking for a tree that takes up less room (or NO room!), you want to add another tree to your Christmas collection, or you’re just trying to find a more non-traditional tree option that suits your personal taste, there are a lot of great alternative Christmas trees out there! We’ve got a list of our favorite ideas, and every one is a unique DIY.
