  • My sister used to zig zag garland back and forth in a corner. Making it look like the shape of a triangle. Then hang some ornaments on it. It was very cute.

  • I'd get a tiny live tree that sits on a small table or in the middle of whatever table I already have

  • Make one out of paper or cardboard and put it on the wall. I think I remember last year that Target sold a large vinyl decal in the shape of a Christmas tree you could put on the wall.

  • We live in a duplex that just a living room and kitchen dining room on the main floor. I set my tree up in the hallway. Can you do something like that? Mine looks really good there.

  • I was going to say the small tabletop tree. My first Xmas as a single adult in my own place I had a 2 foot tree on top of a milk crate. LOL.....One year my brother was going to be staying with us (in a small house) and he had 2 small kids and we had to do the Santa thing. We used a small tree on top of a card table, kept the gifts UNDER the table with a sheet over it, and it worked out great.

  • My SO works 225 miles away. So, we have a 1 bedroom apartment close to his job for the week and he comes home on the weekends and holidays. We have a small 18" tabletop tree that we put up on the table so he has some "Christmas" during the week. It has tiny ornaments and a tiny lit-up star at the top.

  • I agree with ballewal. Get a big one to put on the wall and let your kids decorate with ornamental stickers get creative, i think that would be allot of fun. Or just buy a miniature tree.

  • Move something and cram it in! We always made room, and we had a little place. Get a narrow tree.

  • There is a potted plant called a "Norwalk Pine" (I think!). It looks a lot like a Christmas tree, and comes in a lot of different sizes. They are easy to decorate, and you will have it from year to year :)

    Or, a small artificial (or you may be able to find a cut one) tree on an end or coffee table would be really cute. They have a lot of "little" decorations at Target made just for the little trees.
