Many families have already put up their Christmas trees this year.  But at times, we all know that Christmas trees can also be a hassle to put up.

Although a traditional Christmas tree dressed in red, gold and vintage decorations is a magical sight to behold, if you’re a little less traditional, or maybe you want to put up something a little ‘different’, there are plenty of stunning alternatives out there.

Whether you’re looking for something quirky and clever, clean and modern or just over-the-top bright and colorful, we have put together a few of our favorite non-traditional trees that we are certain will make you smile.

Would you like to try something different this year or you already have? Let us know!

Stacked Branch Christmas Tree:

Use real branches to DIY this stacked Christmas tree. Aiming for a modern-yet-rustic look? Go monochromatic with some mixed metallics.

Photo Tree:

Build a tree of memories this year with your fave insta photos. Because who needs a tower of pine and lights when you can showcase those near and dear to you instead? Add some ornaments and a sparkly “tree” topper for that finishing touch.

Simple Pine Tree: It doesn’t get more minimalist than this tree. We especially love the canary yellow ornaments.

Have a ladder hanging in your garage? Dress it up and put it in your living room for an eclectic Christmas tree. Don’t forget to slap on a string or two of lights to make this towering beauty shine.

PVC pipe Christmas tree

How fun would it be to decorate this! If cutting pvc pipes sounds intimidating, gather some water bottles of various sizes, or paper mailing tubes and perhaps even paint them!
