Wall Christmas Tree

If you don’t have room in your living room, or just fancy a change this year, why not ditch the traditional tree and go for something a bit more unique? The ideas are endless and the sky’s the limit when it comes to what you can do.

  1. Tape string (or a string of lights) on the wall in the zig zag shape of a tree.
  2. Use cards and ornaments to decorate the ‘tree’, randomly or in a pattern

Finish with a star on top which can be flat or 3-D
