Christmas time is upon us! The stores are decked out in Christmas cute decorations for your home. Each December, I enjoy pulling out all my favorite decorations and memories, but every year I also try to add something new to keep up with the trends.

One trend I am seeing many places are little trees, 4 feet and under, as decorations in people’s homes. Much like the tiny house trend, I see people opting to get smaller trees as part of their holiday décor. Here are 3 ideas on how to incorporate tiny trees into your home:

  1. Children’s Tree: If you have children who love to help you decorate, but you are particular about how the tree is decorated like myself, you can get a small tree to use as your children’s personal Christmas tree. They can decorate it as they please, and it can give your family an opportunity to create simple Christmas ornaments to put on the tree. The best part about a children’s tree is that it doesn’t matter if the ornaments are perfectly balanced, it is a special tree just for them.


  1. Tree Greeter: If you have space on your front porch, you might want to consider having a tiny tree out there. You can show the whole neighborhood and every guest your love of Christmas. You can keep it simple by just having a pre-lit tree or you can go all out and decorate this little tree, just be sure to use sturdy ornaments so they won’t break if the wind was to blow.


  1. Planted: In almost every store you go into this season, you should see little trees 2 feet and below in a planter, bucket or basket. These trees are perfect to spread all over your home. You can put them in your kitchen, entry way, bedrooms, the possibilities are endless! You can decorate them with tiny ornaments or keep them as is. These also make great hostess gifts for any Christmas party you might go to this December.

I hope you enjoy this trend as much as I do. I currently have a tiny tree in a small cutout with handmade ornaments from my family and friend. It is a special way I can display some treasured ornaments this year. Have fun experimenting and adding to your Christmas décor!
