Decorating Ideas for a Small Christmas Tree

Winter is almost here, and many people cant help but start getting into the Christmas mood as soon as its time to switch our T-shirts to sweaters. And that is perfectly fine, as there are few things more enjoyable than decorating our homes for the upcoming holidays. However, if you dont have much space, you might feel pressured. The good news is that you dont have to have a two-meter tall tree in the middle of your living room to celebrate the holidays. Small Christmas trees can work just as well and you will save a lot of space and headache, especially if you go for an artificial tree and steer clear of fallen pine needles. Here are a few ideas for decorating your small Christmas tree.

1. Choose your tree

The first step to decorating a small Christmas tree is, of course, getting a tree. Now, you have a vast choice here. You can get an artificial tree that mimics the look of a real one, you can cut down a pine tree branch and use that as a tree, or you can go in a completely different direction and choose unusually colored artificial mini trees. There are even alternative materials that could be used to make a cute little Christmas tree. For instance, you can even use book pages or repurpose plastic spoons to make small but impactful decorations.

2. From the bottom up

Choosing what you will place your tree in is already the first step in decoration. For a natural feel, you can go for a wicker basket. For a cabin vibe, a crate is a great choice, while for a farmhouse look, a metal bucket will do. But the ideas dont stop here. You can use basically anything that can hold your tree and make it a part of the decoration rather than just a necessity. Depending on the size of your mini tree, a candle holder, a vase or even an urn can work.

3. Minimalistic style

One great way to decorate a small Christmas tree is going for a minimalistic vibe, especially if your home is organized in such a manner. You can choose a mini tree that has built-in lights and use it as it is, without any additional ornaments, for a clean look. You can also choose a white artificial tree and adorn it with a limited palette of ornaments to emphasize the Christmas spirit think red or gold, for instance. All in all, when it comes to mini trees, less is more. If you use too many large ornaments, your tree will feel even smaller and overcrowded. So, instead, use ornaments sparingly, and if you can find or make mini ornaments, all the better.

4. A natural vibe

It is popular nowadays to bring nature inside our homes in as many ways as possible. When it comes to your Christmas tree, this does not mean you cannot use an artificial tree. You can express a natural vibe by using one of the aforementioned wooden containers for your tree, as well as by opting for natural decoration. For instance, you can decide to only use wooden decor and visit sellers such as Wooden Crafts. Or if you are a crafty person, you can also make your own ornaments from natural materials such as pinecones, dried orange slices, twigs glued together into different shapes and so on. This way, youll get a harmonious color scheme as well.

5. Glitz and glam

If rather than natural, youre all about that glitter, your small tree is the perfect place to express this. As said, you can go for an extraordinary small tree to have a unique canvas. For instance, a silver tinsel tree is a great choice if you want a lot of sparkle. You can adorn it further with a few glittery baubles and thats basically enough.

Decorating a small Christmas tree is not difficult, you just have to decide on the vibe you want to go for. A small tree is always a good solution as its much more affordable and space-efficient, but it can still have an amazing impact if set up right.
