Do you have trouble fitting a Christmas tree in your small apartment or home? I’ll show you some creative Christmas tree ideas that are sure to bring that holiday cheer to any smaller room during the holiday season.
Today I’m sharing a few of the ways I made my home “festive and fabulous” this year for the holidays. I do this by using many (yes, MANY) smaller Christmas trees, rather than the larger ones you usually see in the beautiful Christmas home tours this time of year.
My friend Stacy at Bricks ‘n Blooms is hosting a Christmas tree blog hop with several talented bloggers sharing their Christmas tree decor. You can find each link at the end of this post.

My Many Christmas Trees in my Small Spaces
It would be hard to count all the smaller trees I have throughout my home. I will admit, I do have an obsession with them.
They’re usually put in a different room each year, with different containers.
I decorate some and leave the others naked. The color schemes change.
And then, just when I think that I’ve finally bought my last one, I buy more when the holidays are over and the sales begin.
I may need therapy.
Here’s one of my favorite flocked artificial Christmas trees. I try not to go too heavy on any one color but decided this year to add more pops of red than I usually do. I mean it is 2020, and anything can happen. You usually don’t see much red in my beach cottage.
Bottlebrush trees are another great item to use during the holidays. I have put these in every room, and have developed a serious compulsion with them. And a bottle brush vignette would not be complete without a galvanized house… or three.
And greenery always looks so pretty and pops against white ironstone.
I have plenty of “naked” Christmas trees around the house and love them just as much as my decorated ones.
I always try to change up the containers I put my Christmas trees. But as much as I work on providing a fresh new look, I just can’t seem to get away from the most perfect galvanized container.
My decor style is more of a casual cottage feel. Our 100-year-old home is not a fancy or formal one and is decorated depending on what mood I’m in. Again, we don’t plan much around here.
This year, I’ve added rustic bells and plenty of wooden ornaments to this Christmas tree.
The Next Best Thing to a Large Christmas Tree
I found out a few years ago that a tabletop tree isn’t the only option for “cozy” space.
A pencil tree is narrow and can be a perfect addition to any small room.
I now have 3 of these at home. Mine are 6-7 ft. tall and really don’t take much room width-wise.
I just bought this flocked Christmas tree from Amazon this year and LOVE IT!
Aren’t the blue ornaments beautiful?
We have low ceilings as well, but we were able to make this 7-foot balsam fir Christmas tree from Target Wondershop fit.
I loved this woven holiday tree collar and it’s a perfect space for piling small packages under the tree.
Faux vs. Fresh Christmas Trees
It’s hard to tell what are live Christmas trees and what is artificial. They make faux Christmas trees, wreaths, and garlands so realistic these days.
The Norfolk pine tree above is a faux tree but we had one the year before that was fresh. They looked very similiar.
Looking for live tabletop Christmas trees?
Trader Joe’s does not disappoint around the holidays with their gorgeous rosemary topiary tree. And they smell amazing!
Where to Put All Those Extra Ornaments
Ever since we moved into our 1600 square foot house, we can only use small Christmas tree decorations that aren’t too heavy for a smaller tree.
Because of this, I have so many pretty ornaments left over from the years past. They look amazing in vintage wooden boxes, crates, wire baskets…basically, anywhere I can fit them.
Dough bowls are my favorite way to show off my larger Christmas ornaments.
Containers and Special Touches
Vintage stoneware crocks are the perfect container for fresh or faux pine trees.
This wooden dough bowl gives these cute flocked artificial trees a festive look.
Check out this beautiful copper container I found at a flea market.
Stools are used a lot around our house for mini trees. You can basically put one anywhere in your house.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your time here. Our Christmas tree blog hop continues with myfriend Kristin from White Arrows Home.
