We're totally hung up on this new alternative Christmas tree trend

It's a Christmas tree, but not as we know it...

If your home is short on space during the festive season, then a hanging Christmas tree could be just the way to go.

This quirky alternative Christmas tree can be hung on any wall. All you need is a hook – you could even replace an existing picture frame or piece of artwork to save making more holes in walls.

As well as looking super stylish on your wall, they can be strung out each year as an alternative to a traditional artificial Christmas tree.

And the good news is there's still plenty of room to pop on your range of Christmas tree decorations – from metallic baubles all the way through to a few flourishes of glittery tinsel.
