How to dress a small christmas tree


48 Best Small Christmas Trees

Jean Allsopp

Nothing says Christmas like visiting your favorite Christmas tree farm and picking out a tree. Choosing just one to take home can be hard and if your beautifully decorated tree leaves you inspired to decorate two or three more, you're not alone. Why not extend the “O Christmas Tree” delight throughout the rest of your holiday house? This year, deck the halls with boughs of holly and lots of small Christmas trees, inside and outdoors!

There are no rules when it comes to decorating with small Christmas trees, so get creative! Try placing mini trees along your mantel or kitchen counter. You can even put trees in your bedroom to give the space that extra holiday glow—just don’t leave them lit while you sleep. And, given their easy-to-work-with size, small trees make for adorable displays and kid-friendly DIY projects. (If you’re not up for dealing with the maintenance of live trees, store-bought trees work just fine.) So, whether you’re looking for new ways to add some Christmas cheer to your house or are just short on space, we’ve gathered the best small Christmas tree ideas to DIY or buy.

How to Decorate Small Christmas Trees

Small Christmas trees are a charming and practical way to add a fresh twist to your décor. These have a small footprint but do not scrimp on holiday cheer, making them a great option for homes with limited space. Bring warmth to your hearth, entryway, or staircase with these adorable small Christmas tree clusters.

To get you started, designer Jennifer Lutz shares three decorating ideas for your small Christmas trees. Watch this video to see how she decorated her tabletop Christmas trees—two 30-inch trees and one 42-inch tree—to create a lovely holiday backdrop.

Show TranscriptionHide Transcription

Jennifer Lutz: Hi, I’m Jennifer with Balsam Hill. Today, I’m decorating small trees, three different ways. To create a bit of visual impact, I’ve used three trees, two 30-inch and one 42-inch Balsam for tabletop tree to create a charming display.

I’m going with three different themes. We have cozy neutrals, vintage memories, and finally, the jewel tone Christmas tree theme. Before you start decorating, take time to fluff your tree. Start at the back of the tree and move toward the front of the tree, adjusting branches, bending outward, and lifting upward. Separate each tip to create an even full look.

I love a neutral tree because it coordinates with any home and creates a warm and welcoming space. For a cozy neutral tree, I layered warm creams, whites, wood tones, and pine cones for a natural understated look. I crafted DIY stacked wooden beads and paired those with porcelain star ornaments and finished the tree with a textured ribbon.

To make stacked wooden bead ornaments, you need wooden beads, twine or string, and scissors. First, measure out and cut a piece of twine, then, triple knot it. Next, string beads in a pattern, varying sizes and colors. Finish by creating a loop to hang the ornament.

Honestly, it doesn’t get more simple than these DIY stacked wooden bead ornaments. My daughter and I spent an hour one afternoon listening to Christmas music and stringing beads and created enough for a full tree or three small trees. As you hang ornaments, spread them out evenly throughout the tree to create balance.

Next, add ribbon for texture. With this ribbon, I wrapped it around the tree at a horizontal angle, tucking sections toward the center to give it depth and movement. Finally, I added some pine cones to bring a bit of the outdoors inside.

The beauty of decorating with small trees is that they leave a small footprint and can be grouped together on the hearth, by stairways, front doors, or any place that you want to add a bit of holiday warmth.

Do you love to mark the passing of time and create a bit of nostalgia? This vintage memories tree is a great choice. This tree is a nod to the past with memory tags, classic car ornaments, and traditional Christmas elements like berries and plaid ribbon. I’ve paired simple wooden name tags filled with important dates and memories along with festive ornaments from Balsam Hill.

For memory tags, here’s what you need, wooden tags, permanent marker or pen, twine or ribbon, and scissors. To make memory tags, cut twine or ribbon to desired length, tie onto each wooden tag, write out your favorite memories for the year or Christmas past.

To decorate your memory tree, begin by adding ribbon. For each tree, I started at the top, tucking in wired ribbon in large loops like a cascading waterfall. Next, hang ornaments. I like to balance ornament’s shapes, sizes, and colors, making sure that they’re dispersed throughout the tree and well-balanced. Finally, stand back and enjoy all your holiday memories, both past and present.

This would be a great project for the entire family. Have everyone spend a few minutes jotting down important milestones or memories from the past year. I picture these trees in a family cottage that you often gather in for holidays and special occasions, or it would be a perfect addition to your cozy family room at home, where you can enjoy reminiscing with your loved ones.

If you’re drawn to elegance, this jewel tone tree is for you. These trees remind me of a proper English Christmas, the kind you read about in a Jane Austen novel, filled with elegance and beauty.

Once again, layering is key. From hand-dyed velvet ribbons to glass bulbs filled with pheasant feathers and finished with exquisitely crafted egg ornaments that remind me of the famed Fabergé eggs.

To create your own feather-filled glass bulbs, here’s what you need, craft feathers, glass bulbs, ornament hooks. Take off the top of the glass ornament. Next, insert at least three small feathers into the interior of the bulb, add enough to fully line the glass bulb with feathers.

For a bit of color and texture, take three small feathers, you may need to trim them, and secure to the outside of the glass bulb with a metal ornament topper. You can add some glue from a glue gun if you want to further secure the feathers. Place the metal top back on the ornament, add a hook or ribbon to hang.

I love the texture, color, and warmth that the pheasant feathers bring to this tree. I used smaller feathers to fill the glass bulbs, and then, I used longer pheasant feathers as picks to add depth. Finish decorating the tree with ribbon. In this case, I used a combination of one-inch hand-dyed velvet ribbon along with three-inch wired metallic ribbon.

Varying ornament and ribbon sizes, along with patterns and textures as layers of warmth and visual interest. These trees are rich in both color and charm.

When decorating for the holidays, I like to coordinate colors throughout a room. This includes candles, stockings, and even pillows. For more ideas, check out our Balsam Hill blog. Wishing you the happiest of holidays.

  • They can be placed just about anywhere. Since they’re easy to move around, you can easily put them in any corner or area you want to brighten up. Aside from the fireplace or living room console table, try placing them on a mudroom bench, kitchen countertop, or bedroom dresser.
  • They fit inside charming containers. Display tiny Christmas trees inside pots, buckets, or planters to complement the rest of your home décor.
  • They take up less space. Small Christmas trees are perfect for decorating narrow spaces and high-traffic areas such as the kitchen, front door, or home office without getting in the way.

  • They allow you to display multiple Christmas trees. Create smaller versions of your main centerpiece and set them in different rooms for a cohesive look. Or, decorate your small Christmas tree in varying themes so each one stands out.

You can decorate a small Christmas tree so that it looks just as good as a big tree. But in the process of decorating, you need to follow certain rules so that the jewelry really looks stylish and neat.

Features of the choice of decorations for a small Christmas tree

A small Christmas tree can be quite miniature or about 1 m high. But in any case, it does not become such a bright accent in a home interior as a tall spruce to the ceiling. Therefore, decorations must be selected especially carefully, they should highlight the New Year's plant, but not hide it from view:

  1. For a small plant, it is better to use a small amount of decorations. If the tree is covered with toys and garlands too tightly, then the needles will simply get lost.

    A small tree doesn't need a lot of toys

  2. Ornaments for a small plant should also be miniature. Large toys and balls distract attention from the needles, and besides, the tree can lose stability under their weight.

    Miniature fir trees should be decorated with small decorations

Important! Home-made elements are especially actively used in the decor - you can dress up a small tree with great imagination.

Colors, styles, trends

When decorating a small spruce, designers advise to adhere to the "golden rule" of New Year's decor - use no more than 2-3 colors. Motley multi-colored decorations can even damage the beauty of a large tree, and a small conifer will completely lose its attractiveness.

You can decorate a small Christmas tree beautifully in the following colors:

  • bright red;
  • gold;
  • white and silver;
  • bright blue.

There are several popular styles of decorating a small spruce:

  1. Traditional. The main colors are red and white.

    Traditional decor suitable for all interiors

  2. Scandinavian. Fashionable style recommends using white and black elements for decoration.

    Scandinavian style spruce gives a discreet and calm impression

  3. Eco style. Here, the main emphasis is placed on natural elements - cones, bells and balls woven from a vine.

    Eco-style offers to make the main accent in the decor on cones

  4. Vintage. The direction of the decor suggests decorating a small Christmas tree with light toys in the style of the middle of the last century.

    Vintage style uses mid-20th century Christmas decorations and balls

In 2022, eco-style and vintage are especially popular. These directions remain quite new in New Year's design and have not yet had time to get bored. In addition, when decorating spruce, it is these styles that allow you to show your imagination as much as possible.

Attention! A striking trend in recent years is an increased interest in living miniature potted conifers. After the New Year holidays, you can remove the decorations from the plant and grow it further in the room or on the balcony.

How to decorate a small Christmas tree with toys

New Year's toys are an obligatory attribute of decor. But when decorating a small spruce, you need to remember a few rules:

  1. The size of the toys should match the small spruce, large decorations on it will look too massive.

    Miniature tree ornaments should be small

  2. Preference should be given to simple geometric shapes - balls, stars and bells.

    Plain balls look best on dwarf spruce

  3. If the toys are very small, then you can hang more of them. If there are only large and medium-sized balls from the decor, then just a few toys will suffice.

    Small toys can be hung generously

  4. It is advisable to decorate a small Christmas tree with toys of the same style - mixing vintage and modern style, classic and Provence is not recommended.

    It is recommended to stick to one style in Christmas decor

In general, when decorating a miniature spruce, toys should only emphasize the beauty of the conifer, and not hide it under them.

How to beautifully decorate a small Christmas tree with garlands and tinsel

Tinsel and garlands are an integral part of the New Year. But when decorating a dwarf spruce, you need to use these elements carefully, otherwise the tree will simply hide under the brilliant decor.

To make the tinsel look harmonious, it should be used in a minimum amount. For example, you can cut a long thin silver-colored tinsel into several small pieces and lay them out on the branches - you get an imitation of snow. Also, spruce can be carefully wrapped with thin tinsel from top to bottom, while the shiny decoration should be one bright stripe.

It is not worth overloading a compact spruce with tinsel

A small spruce can be decorated with a luminous New Year's garland. The main thing is not to entangle the tree with LED lights too tightly. It is best to choose a garland of white, light yellow or blue, with a slow flickering rate or with a fixed glow.

Flicker-free garlands are suitable for dwarf trees

Decorations for a small Christmas tree with your own hands

For a small Christmas tree, it can be difficult to find standard decorations. Therefore, it is customary to actively use home-made decor, namely:

Tip! You can hang small sweets and cookies on a small conifer and gradually remove edible decorations on New Year's Eve.

Handmade knitted decorations for a small Christmas tree

A very fashionable trend of recent years is knitted and wicker decor for miniature Christmas trees. You can decorate a small Christmas tree:

Knitted decorations not only look beautiful, they are also practical. Such decorative elements weigh almost nothing, which means that the branches of the conifer will definitely not break under their weight.

Photo ideas on how to decorate a small Christmas tree

To appreciate the advantages of small Christmas trees, you can look at photo examples:

  1. In eco-style. The design used a large number of cones, wooden elements and snow. Although the tree is richly decorated, the needles are not lost under the decorations, and the composition looks stylish.

    Cones can be used instead of balls to decorate a small Christmas tree in a pot.

  2. In a classic style. The bright green small spruce is decorated with red balls and large bows of the same shade, the composition looks elegant but restrained.

    A red Christmas tree decoration is best paired with a warm gold garland.

  3. Scandinavian style. Live spruce is decorated very simply - with snow-white balls and stars, but it is precisely the clear contrasts that give the composition an elegant and noble look.

    White decor and green needles perfectly emphasize each other's beauty

Examples allow you to make sure that a small Christmas tree in the interior is in no way inferior to a tall tree. You can decorate it modestly, but even in this case, the tree will attract attention.

Conclusion

You can decorate a small Christmas tree with ordinary toys and homemade paraphernalia. If you observe the measure in decorating, then a low tree will take a very advantageous place in the interior.
