Using branches and twigs, you can create the most incredible Christmas tree on your wall with just a small walk outside. Gather different branches and cut them in different lengths, forming a rough tree shape, and use a sturdy cord to tie them together, leaving a loop on top for hanging. Grab a glue gun and start attaching ornaments, ribbons, pine cones, stars, anything you have laying around. Add some fairy lights and you’ll have a gorgeous and modern Christmas Tree!

If you live in a smaller space or if you just don’t want to commit to a full-sized Christmas tree, there’s always a solution. You can place pine branches and other tree branches on a bigger vase and hang beautiful ornaments on them, recreating the holiday effect on a smaller version. You can place the vase on different places, like:

  • On a corner table;
  • On the dining table;
  • On the mantel;
  • On a living room or bedroom corner;
  • On top of a cupboard (and use the cupboard to store the gifts);
  • Or on any place that works best for your house!

The result is as beautiful and as festive as a full sized tree.
