5 Mini Christmas Tree Ideas For Small Spaces

Who says you need to have a 12 foot Christmas tree to create a festive feel? These pretty mini tree are ideas are living (some are potted!) proof that you can still have a christmas tree in the smallest of spaces, and it can look as festive as can be. Oh and they make perfect Christmas pressies / holiday gifts too!

1. Mini Spruce in a vase (above): Not only is this tree in the home of Anna Kvarnstr√∂m small enough to use as a table top decoration, you can enjoy your turkey / julbord around it and avoid all the faff of a tree foot too!! God rest ye merry gentlemen! Use real candles for an extra mysig feel (but never leave unattended!). See more subtle festive touches in Anna's lovely home here.

2. The tabletop Christmas tree:  little trees are perfect perched on side tables, stools and benches in places like the hallway. The clever guys over at The Merry Thought made the wooden decorations on this tree too - and have shared all the know-how in this film.

3. The Windowsill Forest: Create a forest right there on the windowsill with fake trees in simple bark containers from Danish brand House Doctor - or create your own with simple cuts from outside (you can also try your local florist / nursery) - there's a great DIY guide here.

4. Mini Christmas tree presents: Heading to a dinner party? Why not give the host one of these little fellas instead of the standard amaryllis (although a salmon-apricot amaryllis is always a good idea!)? Simply wrap them in wax paper with a bow and you're all set. Plus the host can plant it and use it again next year -bonus! You might even like to add a few care instructions (read about how to care for a potted tree here). I wish I knew the credit for this lovely setting - please give me a shout in the comment section below if you are able to help!

5. Mini Christmas tree gift wrapping: Now, I pride myself on my present wrapping (I might even go as far as saying it's my favourite part of the pre-Christmas prep!) - but I've never seen this idea before. You just need brown wrapping paper, a christmas tree shaped cutting from a conifer tree like cypress or juniper and some glue! Get all the know-how over at A Piece of Rainbow.

Such simple, pretty ideas, don't you think?

Are there any that caught your eye?

For more inspiration you might like to take a little peek in the Christmas and Christmas decoration archives (if this pops up first, just scroll passed!).

I'll be back tomorrow with a beautiful home tour.

Look forward to seeing you then!



  1. In Estonia You can buy or rent a living christmas tree in an aspen pot. You choose after christmas, if you want to plant it or return it.

    1. What a great idea / service! Thank you so much for sharing this!

  2. This is so cute. I have been doing the mini tree for a couple years now, but haven't gotten creative with it. I had the idea, or saw it somewhere, for the mini forest on the windowsill, and I love it so much, but we had already put up our mini tree for the year. Next year!

    1. I bet yours is lovely, just the way it is! I know what you mean though, I keep seeing things I'd like to do but have left it a little late, I hope I remember next year! Wishing you a very merry christmas! Niki x

  3. Merry Christmas, Niki! Thank you for your wonderful blog! It always gives me a good mood and wonderful ideas... and I'm on my way to Stockholm. I will be there for a few hours on Thursday :) I want to see how the Swedish are preparing for Christmas :)

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Svet! I hope you have a great time in Stockholm, it's beautiful with all the Christmas lights. Niki x
