Any home that breathes the Christmas spirit has to have a Christmas tree. DIY allows your tree to be unique, the fruit of your originality and they are also a good option for smaller spaces. Anyone can create space-saving Christmas trees using easy-to-find materials. In fact, we can stick our tree on the wall. A collage made by gathering vintage objects can be very elegant and if you opt for something more informal, you can always decorate the wall with Christmas postcards.
If you like the idea of hanging the Christmas tree on the wall, here are more ideas. You can make one out of tissue paper. You can also draw it with chalk, and create its outline with a string on which to glue the ornaments.
Using wood to create original trees is another good idea. It is as easy as unleashing your imagination and painting different pieces or small logs of wood and then joining them in an ascending way to copy the shape of the pine. Do not forget to crown it with the star and if you want to give it a more cheerful look, hang Christmas decorations.
Stairs can also be perfect Christmas trees if we know how to take advantage of them. Metallic or wooden, we can get a Christmas use by placing the decorations and lights on them.
By recycling objects that we usually have at home we can also create small Christmas trees. Tapered shapes and festive colors are key in these designs.
With paper, you can make many types of Christmas trees. Recycling newspapers and magazines and combining them with real plants, using flowerpots and Christmas decorations, we have nothing to envy traditional trees.
