From rustic rope ladders to small space solutions, these quirky trees offer a festive country feel with a twist...
Who says Christmas trees have to be bushy?
These slim-line frosted birch trees (from £35, Cox & Cox) are just as magical with soft LED lighting and a dusting of faux snow. Decorate with gold and silver stars or leave as they are for a modern festive feel.
Stick ’em up
Best placed on a white wall, this self-adhesive and removable 5ft wall sticker (£35, Next) features a lush green fir, straight out of a snow-covered forest! It’s quick and easy to put up and won’t shed or lose its colour over time – just the thing if you’re away from home over the holiday season.
Rustic and understated, this rope ladder design
(£22, Not On The High Street) sits flat against a wall or door – perfect for awkwardly shaped rooms. Use as an additional tree or make it the main attraction; decorate natural branches with wooden ornaments, glitzy baubles and stripy candy canes, then surround with beautifully wrapped presents.
These lightweight wooden shelves (£45, Cox
& Cox) sit together to create the classic Christmas tree outline.
Nature-inspired knick-knacks and twinkling tea lights compliment the frosted grey paint shade – a foliage-free display that adds a subtle seasonal touch to tabletops and windowsills.
Short on space? A handful of mini fir trees dotted around evoke as much of a Christmassy feel as one large version, and they can be used across multiple rooms too! Pinecones nestle in the branches of this tabletop design (£25, The White Company), all of which have been painted by hand. It comes wrapped in natural hessian for an authentic homespun finish.

Arms of steel
Is it a Christmas tree or a sculpture… with its refined shape and sleek silhouette, it’s hard to tell, but we love it anyway! Contemporary in appearance, it’s easy to give this quirky design (£120, Nordic House) a country makeover: simply wrap soft moss around the wrought iron frame and adorn with white ceramic decorations, tied with red ribbon – easy!
Christmas trees made from reclaimed wood are becoming increasingly popular. Handmade in rural Sussex, this Scandi-inspired version (from
£129, Timbatree) has little tea light holders carved into the end of each branch – a twinkly alternative to traditional fairy lights!
