There actually is a Christmas Tree buried deep inside there, but there’s so much else going on that I felt it worthy of inclusion in this list.

I love the idea of this, especially for smaller spaces.  Take a picture of a Christmas Tree, either a decorated one or one in the full snow of nature.  Enlarge it and print it out as individual prints that can be hung on the wall to create a collage of that tree. Beautiful!

If you’re starved for space AND time, all you need is a large picture that you can print at Kinkos. Something about 3′ x 4′ will cost you around $10 to print. Hang it with some dowling and string, and you’re all set with the thinnest Christmas Tree possible!. If you want to add a bit more flair, layer on some small, lightweight ornaments, tinsel, lights, etc.

Sheet Music Christmas Tree

I love  how the delicate notes of the sheet music enhance this DIY Christmas Tree accent.  This is a table-top tree, as I don’t think this would translate well to a full-sized Christmas tree. If you prove me wrong, send me a photo!!

Tripod Christmas Tree

This is similar in concept to the Ladder Christmas Tree, but this uses a Camera Tripod, which are easy to expand and set up. The Tripod is then decorated with lights, ribbons, and Christmas Ornaments to create a unique Pop Up Christmas Tree.

Candle Christmas Tree
