Christmas Tree Alternatives

Hi friends! Happy Thanksgiving eve! As many of you may be getting ready to get your tree over the next few weeks, I am so excited about today's topic - Christmas tree alternatives! Don't get me wrong; I love me a big ol' Douglas Fir. But, I got to thinking about all the reasons why one might not be able to swing a real tree. Many apartments don't allow you to have a real tree, (such was the case with our first apartment). Or perhaps you live on a high floor with no elevator, (you can ask our beloved Cate about that). Or maybe there is literally no space for a tree, (my sister, Casey, has all the tips and tricks to living in 150sq feet). And for many, the price of a tree is hard to justify. 

For all these reasons, and I'm sure more, you may be opting out of doing a real Christmas tree this year. Well, have I got some fun news for you! There are some seriously epic Christmas tree alternative options out there! Here are some favorites that I found:

Goodness, aren't these alternative trees so much fun?! Even if you're getting a real tree, any of these whimsical DIY options would make a wonderfully festive touch in another room, (oh my gosh, my kids would probably LOVE having a 'tree' in their own rooms)! If you stop by on Friday, I'll be sharing a smaller Christmas tree alternative made from magazines!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, friends. Cate and I are counting you in our blessings this year and we are very grateful for your encouragement of StyleMutt. Thank you, all.
