Christmas Trees for the Wall

Updated on December 2, 2013

A Tree for Small Spaces and Homes with Pets or Kids

A Christmas tree for the wall is the perfect tree for anyone who has a small apartment.

A wall Christmas tree is also the answer for anyone who has children or small pets, because the tree will be away from little fingers, prying noses or paws and less likely to get upset, topple over or pulled down.

There are so many different ways to put up a wall Christmas tree. Vinyl decals or Christmas tree wall stickers (like the one to the left) and mobiles are the easiest to use, since they are already decorated.

Half Christmas wall trees can be hung high up on the wall and then decorated with your favorite ornaments and garlands. These half trees are great where space is limited like small apartments and dorm rooms.

If you are feeling more creative, you can make an artistic Christmas tree from Christmas cards, garlands, lights or just project a Christmas tree on the wall. A Christmas felt tree is an easy way to hang up a tree on the wall, plus a way to keep young children entertained, hanging up felt ornaments.

Discover more fun and creative ways to put up a Christmas tree this year on your wall that are space efficient, pet friendly and child friendly.

Places to Set up a Christmas Wall Tree

Christmas Wall Trees can be very handy for decorating in a variety of settings where space may be at a premium, like dorm rooms, small home or business spaces or where having a Christmas tree on display may be disruptive, like homes or schools with small children.

Many of the Christmas trees on the wall, like the vinyl tree decals, felt trees or virtual trees are both child friendly and pet friendly.

Of course some people may prefer a Christmas Wall Tree because it is artistic and unique.

Vinyl Christmas Trees Make Decorating Simple

Putting up a giant Christmas tree sticker or Christmas tree wall decal is one of the easiest ways to add a Christmas tree to the wall.

Christmas tree vinyl decals come in different styles and colors. Some are complete trees, some come with packages and some are more stylized like the Christmas tree from snowflake dots seen in the intro picture and some are Christmas tree of words.

Some tree decals are large removable wall stickers like the snow covered tree with Adirondack chairs above that are more like wall art.

Decorate the Windows with Fir Branch Decals

Another fun Christmas tree decorating option is to use Christmas tree fir branch decals and put them up in the windows.

Some of the Christmas tree fir branch stickers come with additional ornament decorations like the ones seen in the photograph to the right or the fir tree branches with heart ornaments and stars available on Amazon below.

The nice bonus with putting up tree branch decals in the windows is that they can also be seen from outside, so people can enjoy your decal tree looking at the house.

Put up a Family Tree for Christmas

A fun way to get the family involved and show off some family photos is to put up a Christmas Tree Decal as a Family Tree.

In the video clip below Downright Domestic TV host Rebecca Webster shows how easy it is to put up a decal family tree as a fun conversation starter.

Start with a tree wall decal of your choice like one of the decals with swirls below or the more classic family tree to the right. Find favorite family photos (old or new) and copy them to hang up. Use Rebecca's idea and copy old photos onto round labels to add as ornaments to a wall Christmas tree.

Consider using other old photographs of favorite family places or use newspaper clippings, favorite quotes. Label the photos with the people names and important information.

Even more fun turn the Family Tree Christmas Tree into a photo scavenger hunt or matching game where they have to identify the people and places as a way to entertain guests.

Hang Half Christmas Trees on the Wall

Hanging up a half Christmas tree, one that is only full in the front of the tree and is flat in the back is a great space saver in small homes, small apartments, dorm rooms, office settings and workplaces that allow decorating for the holidays.

For a more whimsical Christmas tree, hang a topsy-turvey upside down half Christmas tree.

Securely hang the half tree on the wall and decorate as normal with your ornaments, garlands and tinsel. Since the half tree is a smaller tree, pick your favorite ornaments to feature.

Note: Since these do have some depth to the tree they could still be grabbed onto by flying cats. Make sure that the tree is placed away from shelves or other jumping off points for those stealthy tree climbing pets.

Christmas Tree Mobiles

Hang a Christmas Mobile

The sleek Scandinavian designs of the Flensted Mobiles appeal to my Finnish sense of design, so the mobiles make unique artistic additions to any holiday d├ęcor.

Christmas mobiles can also be hung for decoration in any child's nursery to let even the youngest family members experience the magic of the holidays.

The Flensted Mobiles are a traditional handicraft from Denmark and feature green pine trees, decorated Christmas trees and green trees with hearts. The 6 Christmas Tree Mobile with hearts below is on my Christmas list.

Chalkboard Christmas Wall Tree

Chalkboard Christmas Tree for the Classroom

A Chalkboard Christmas tree is a fun way to combine school and holiday decorating.

Teachers, who are able to do so, can put up a Chalkboard Christmas tree in the classroom for writing holiday messages.

A single chalkboard tree for the class or smaller individual trees can be easily cut from removable chalkboard stickers. Students can draw their own ornaments and garlands with colorful chalk.

The tree can also be used for educational purposes. Different holiday themes can be written on the board as writing prompts for the day.

Felt Christmas Wall Tree

Make a Christmas Tree from Felt

The Felt Christmas tree is an easy craft project and a fun way to let young children have their own special Christmas tree with ornaments and packages that they can hang up all by themselves.

All you have to do is get a large piece of green felt and cut out the desired size of your tree. Felt by the yard can be purchased at fabric stores or online from Amazon.

For reference using a one yard by 72 inch wide piece of green felt will give you a 6 foot tall tree that is 3 foot wide.

Cut ornament and shapes out of colorful felt. Felt sticks to felt, so once the tree is attached to a wall so even little toddler hands can hang up their own felt ornaments.

Many blogger mothers have observed that a felt Christmas Tree is a great way to keep young children entertained decorating their own tree with their own non-breakable ornaments.

Christmas Tree with Christmas Card Holder

Hang a Christmas Card Christmas Tree

Using a Christmas Card holder in the shape of a tree to create a Christmas tree on the wall is a wonderful way to display Christmas cards and grow a unique Christmas tree at the same time.

Simply hang up a Christmas Card Christmas Tree holder on the wall and start adding in Christmas Cards as they arrive.

This method works best for those who are still exchanging paper Christmas cards and are not just exchanging eCards at the Holidays, although eCards with images can be printed out for display.

No Christmas Cards? Hang up photographs or Christmas ornaments, tiny gifts and other decorations on the Christmas Card tree.

Projected Christmas Tree

A Virtual Christmas Tree

One of the easiest Christmas Trees to put up on the wall is a virtual or projected Christmas tree.

Find a Christmas Tree image that you like and put it on a slide to use with a projector or an overlay to use with an overhead projector.

The projected Christmas tree is a great idea for dorm room walls, businesses, classrooms or school productions.

A projected tree is the perfect pet friendly or child friendly tree for homes with tree attacking cats or children.

      I have a small place but so far I've got four Xmas trees up. Most are small. Having a couple on the wall sounds like a good idea.

      You might like to see the Wall Trees lens I have. There's a different kind from what you show here. Maybe you'll want to include the wall trees that aren't decals.

      With no room for a standup tree the past couple of years, we've done without. The wall decals and "half-trees" are fabulous ideas. Yay! Christmas is back! Thank you.

      I tend to listen to Christmas music year round. So a wall Christmas tree might just fit in. That way it would be small enough to fit on the wall at work.
