It’s officially the first of December and the chocolately goodness of our advent calendar countdown to Christmas has begun! But how ready are you for Christmas? Have you put up your tree yet this year? Whether you usually decorate your green or white tree with flashing fairy lights, baubles, tinsel and festive ornaments or prefer to take a more individual approach, Christmas is a time for a fun array of colours.
Take a look at our favourite weird, wacky and downright obscure trees to get you into the festive spirit of the season!
THE UPSIDE-DOWN TREE
We’re going to start with the strangest tree we’ve found … the upside-down tree! Turn things on their head (literally) this winter. “Why?” you ask… Well, why not?! It will definitely stand out to visitors and will have everyone talking! Just make sure it’s attached to the ceiling properly so there are no breakages if your curious, naughty cat gets too close and goes for a climb…
THE FLORAL TREE
Mix things up this year and decorate your tree with LOTS of colourful (preferably fake if it’s going to be up more than a few days) flowers. Feminine, eye-catching and beautiful, this tree is definitely unique and special.
THE PINEAPPLE TREE
Living in a tiny apartment that can’t even fit a small tree? Some people have taken to decorating items as obscure as pineapples. Yes, really. Just look at these painted ones that have been decorated with baubles and fairy lights!
THE SNOWMAN TREE
Do you usually top your Christmas tree with an angel or a silver star? Have you considered going with something a little more unusual like a snowflake or even a snowman? This white snowman-inspired tree also has an elf stuck through the centre … funny for the little ones but not required.
THE WOODEN TREE
Instead of spending the festive season cleaning up pine needles, why not decorate your home with a simple wooden Christmas tree?! It looks festive, can be easily decorated and is ideal for small spaces!
THE WOODEN WALL TREE
Another idea for small spaces is a tree attached to a wall space, like this one that can be made from driftwood or tree branches and high quality string. We love that it is a DIY project as you can get creative and personalise it like any other tree before decorating it with baubles to keep the spirit of Christmas alive in your home!
THE HALF TREE
We all know that cats will climb literally everything they can get their hands (ok, paws) on. So what can cat owners do at this time of year to cope with the never-ending risk of waking up to find a collapsed tree and smashed baubles? This half tree is the ideal option, assuming you can stop your furry friend from climbing the bark…
