4 Creative alternatives for the traditional Christmas Tree

Once again it’s time to decorate our home for Christmas. It’s time to get the boxes out and to retrieve the garlands, Christmas lights and all the other fun decorations. And, of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a Christmas tree.Some people tend to perceive some of the traditions as old and as a result they’re searching for modern and fun alternatives. It’s easy to do that with the decorations but when it comes to the Christmas tree it’s a little more complicated. So if you’re having trouble coming up with a creative idea, here are some alternatives that might help.

Just because it’s called a Christmas tree this doesn’t mean it actually has to be a tree, or at least not anymore. This means you can improvise and creative something similar to the original design but with different materials. You can use metal, wood or you can simply create a shape out of decorative lights. Imagine you’re decorating an invisible tree. Having a support would help. Another interesting idea is the one with the books.

If you have several bookshelves placed one of top of the other you can use books to recreate the shape f the Christmas tree. All these are very creative and fun ideas and would probably successfully replace the traditional tree if that’s what you want. However, I wonder where the present go in this scenario.{pics from 1,2,3 and 4}
