We put our Christmas tree up over the weekend. I couldn’t have a tree last year because I lived in a tiny studio so I was glad to be reunited with all my decorations this year. I’ve been thinking a lot about alternatives to a traditional Christmas tree. I’ve always loved the sparse look of wooden branch trees and how great a small collection of decorations look displayed this way.
I made this Christmas tree alternative using some 6mm MDF, leftover paint, wooden hooks and my favourite decorations. The wooden triangle measures 120cm wide x 140cm high. Most timber yards/DIY stores can cut this for you but if you want to downsize the tree you can create the same look with cutting the same shape out of mount board / cardboard.
