How do you have Christmas without a tree?
As I mentioned before in Christmas Decor Home Tour , our faux snowed Christmas tree mysteriously got destroyed while in storage. It sucks because I really loved that tree and we only had it for 2 years. Now with the holiday season in full affect, trees can be expensive.
So What Now?
The mister and I are contemplating on getting a real Christmas tree this year (sap and all), and then after the holiday season purchase another faux tree when they’re much cheaper.
While that thoughtful solution is still simmering. I came up with another solution. A corner wall Christmas tree made with lights! Haha! It’s truly something new since I had no idea what to do with these extra lights. So, I thought of hanging the lights on the wall.
- Christmas Lights
- Command strips light hanging clips for outside
To get started, I eyed the layout of the Christmas tree as I placed the command strips on each side of the wall.
Just peel and stick!
Note: To make it easier, use painter’s tape to layout the christmas shape tree before adding the command strips .
After completing that process, I then hook the lights from left to right.
It may or may not be temporary, but it works! It’s beautiful and the kiddos loved it!
To help bring Christmas in for the girls, I purchased two small trees from Target so they can decorate and call their own. Each tree cost $3. The Christmas bulbs cost about$3 from 5 below.and the string of garland with bells cost $1 from The Dollar Tree.
Thank you for taking this Christmas tree journey with us. Happy Holidays and safe shopping!
