How to Decorate a Small Christmas Tree

decorate small christmas treeJust because you have a small Christmas tree doesn’t mean you can’t make it the best tree ever.

Some people are short on space so they need to have a small tree while other people like the look of a small tree rather a larger one. And I even know some people who have more than one tree and they set up a small tree in a different room or even in one of their kid’s bedrooms.

There are plenty of things that you can do when it comes to decorating a small tree that will make it look absolutely amazing. The key is to utilize the space you do have in the best way possible so that you get the look you want from your tree.

I’ve put together some tips on decorating a small Christmas tree that are sure to help you this holiday season if you have to have a small tree you are decorating.

Tips and Ideas for Decorating a Small Christmas Tree

*Pick a Theme for Your Christmas Tree

Keeping a theme for your tree can make it look look larger and a lot more put together than simply hanging any ornament or garland you have on the thing. Pick a theme that works with the ornaments you already have if you want to save money. (Check out my article on 10 Christmas Tree Theme Ideas).

When you just randomly hang some stuff up on your tree it can look quite messy and actually make your tree look smaller. Plus when you do this you can’t really utilize all the space of the tree because of all the mismatch items and the lack of planning out the tree.

If you want your little tree to stand out, check out the different colored trees that are available.  One of the most popular colors to choose from is a white tree, which looks great when paired with some colorful Christmas ornaments.

There are also other colors to choose from such as pink, red, purple, light blue, and silver. Since you will have a small tree the colors won’t be too overpowering and look gaudy. Just be sure that when you decorate the tree you decorate in complimentary colors and things aren’t completely clashing with the color of the tree.

*Look for Size Appropriate Decorations

If you have a small Christmas tree, especially a mini tree or a small tabletop tree, make sure you are using size appropriate decorations. You may not be able to use the giant ornaments that you would use on a normal sized tree because they will just be too overwhelming on the tree. If you use ribbon to decorate your tree, look for a thinner one instead of the normal 5 or 6 inch ribbon you usually use.

Using size appropriate decorations also comes in play when you choose a tree topper. Don’t use a large 16 inch topper on your 3 foot Christmas tree. It will just look wrong and it probably won’t even stand up properly. Instead go with a mini Christmas tree topper that only measures 4 or 6 inches in height.

If you are short on space in your home, then you may want to choose a tabletop Christmas tree to save some room. With a tabletop tree you can get your tree off the ground and save some ground space so you aren’t completely squished into an area.

You can place your tabletop tree wherever you have some space on an elevated area such as on a coffee table, a side table, a small bookcase or even your kitchen table or counter. Just because you are short on space doesn’t mean you can’t still have your Christmas tree this year.
