Seven inspiring ideas for alternative Christmas trees…

Last week, we showed you how to set a tantalising Christmas table; today, we turn our attention to styling the all-important tree. Check out our hot Pinterest picks… Scroll through the gallery above.

1. Create a Christmas atmosphere in your garden with a tree-shaped string of fairy lights.

2. We love these?cookies for their simply sweet Scandinavian feel.

3. Maximise your stairs potential and use the corner’s widest stair to display a dinky tree

4. Recycle a pallet for wonderfully linear lumber.

5. If your teach is ultra-minimal and graphic, give this super-stylised tree a try.

6. A blackboard wall is a great use of space, and can easily be updated throughout the rest of the year.

7. No excuse for being short on time – get a tree in an instant with a propped-up print.
