We have reached that time of year when decorating our homes for the festive period is well under way and perhaps the most important addition is the Christmas tree.
When I was a child, decorating the tree was very exciting. Remembering the touch and smell of the pine, hanging the delicate baubles, draping glittering tinsel and pretty bright lights on the branches kept us occupied for hours. The tree was only completed once it had been topped off with the cherished Christmas fairy; all these things added to the special atmosphere at that time of the year.
But what do you do if you don’t have room to fit a tree in your home? I have scoured the web to find the most innovative Christmas tree ideas that take up hardly any space in your home and stop your friends and family from accusing you of being a ‘Scrooge’ for not getting a tree at all this year. From the inexpensive to the moderately priced, we are sure there is a tree to suit you. Have a look at these alternative 2D space saving designs we found on Pinterest.
