Add a Backdrop
Want to illuminate your "tree"? Use nearby vertical space to drape LED lights to add sparkle to the ornaments.
Hanging Tree Alternative
If you're in a small apartment with no practical spot for a Christmas tree, then stick one on the wall. Once your hanging tree is in place above a table, place your gifts and accessories below.
Personalize the hanging tree with ornaments that tell a story. This rustic, natural style is accentuated with woodland creature ornaments.
Add an element of surprise to your hanging tree with a battery-operated tree topper. Not only does this keep things festive after dark, it can help hide any small nails or hangers.
Keep It Classic
When all else fails, know that a classic slim-line tree decked out in red, white and green will always stay in holiday fashion. Stick with a pre-lit tree that disassembles into three or four sections for quick and easy off-season storage.
Soft and Simple Garland
Repurpose a holiday banner into a statement-making garland by hanging it roughly 2/3 up the tree. Keeping the banner between 50 and 60 inches in length will ensure it sits at eye level.
Consider tree toppers made of plastic, cardboard or lightweight wood veneer if your home has active kids or pets.
