1. LET'S START SMALL.....
Pretty easy representation of a small tree. More like a wreath. But shaped like a tree, so it passes. Get a pair of knit mittens and stuff them with greens-- fake here, but you could use fresh cedar, etc.
2. The Gentle Woodlands Tree Hanging ..

This is a simple and sweet stylized Christmas tree that would look good on any wall. Drill some holes in some sticks of lessening lengths, put string through to take on the triangle tree shape, and hang (or perch) your choice of whimsical decorations on the stick branches. Weave some lights in.

This might work quite well if you have a ceiling hook that was originally designed for a hanging plant. I have a few of those in my 70s house. Even when my husband re-painted the ceilings, he replaced the hooks for the hanging plants. Hmm. Perhaps he was envisioning this light tree!
4. The Scent of a Christmas Tree...

I really like this as an alternative to the artificial tree we have been putting up over the recent years. A pine branch or a cedar bough-- all good. The fragrance will be lovely. There will be needles, but that is the cost of enjoying natural ions right in your home! It appears that this tree is hung with tiny pots of Tillandsia or air plants. Wouldn't my household spider just love this!
