Don’t know what tree to put this Christmas? How to decorate it? If you have tired of so much tradition and want to give your Christmas decoration a new look, you are going to love these trees. We have collected 50 beautiful Christmas trees with different colors and styles. Trees for small or large spaces. From the most traditional proposals to the rarest and most original trees that you can think of. (Don’t miss out on the pet-proof Christmas tree!).

Make your own Christmas tree! In this link you have a very eco-friendly idea, based on fabric and a natural trunk, you can support it directly on the floor or hang it on the wall, on the skirting board.
How to choose the best Christmas tree
We fill it with decorations and lights and place it in a conspicuous place at home during Christmas. The tree is the protagonist, but the first step is to choose the model that best suits and convinces us. We review. Take a few minutes to read these tips to choose the Christmas tree and you will have guaranteed success.
Children love to assemble and decorate the tree; do not deprive them of that illusion. To avoid accidents, opt for an artificial model, which does not require maintenance, and choose resistant motifs that you can make yourself at home. For example, some felt reindeer, or wool pom poms instead of balls.

1 METALLIC TREE
If you want to create a romantic atmosphere, cover the tree with subtle gold, mother-of-pearl glosses, silver figures and copper objects that make it clear that the Metal Age has settled in your home.

4 THE TREE IS THE PROTAGONIST
If what you really like is that the fir tree is part of your indoor “plants” during these dates, adorn it with grace, but without excesses, like this one. A few decorations and a pretty pot holder are enough. FromRice.
5 Decorate your fir trees for Christmas
Turn the little plants you have around the house into makeshift fir trees and decorate them with motifs that don’t weigh much, so they don’t get damaged; so when Christmas is over, you can relocate them in their usual space. Here some that were on the terrace were used and decorated with small felt hearts. Cypresses, from Los Peñotes. Hearts, for sale in Canterano.
6 A Christmas tree for small spaces
Do you have so little space that you do not know where to place the tree? Don’t worry, here’s the solution: choose a mini Christmas tree and put it on a side table as if it were a vase or a small lamp. Decorate it with balls of profuse colors and you will see how, despite its diminutive size, it is the center of attention. Balls, by House Doctor (from €2.51).
7 CHRISTMAS TREE MADE WITH ROSES
How romantic! It seems painted on the wall, but they are flowers placed with great care.
8 NATURAL SPRUCE
Decided! This year you have decided to get a real fir tree and thus contribute to the sustainability of the environment. It does not pollute in its manufacture and disposal, something that does happen with plastic ones, and it reduces the greenhouse effect by consuming CO2. After the holidays, take it to a clean point. If it can be recovered, it will be planted again and if not, it will go to the composting plant. Where can you buy it? At the School of Forestry Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, on the website www.miarboldenavidad.com or at Abetos Solidarios of the UPM.

12 A Nordic-style Christmas tree
If something characterizes this style, it is its simplicity and naturalness. It is essential that the Christmas tree is real (later you can plant it) and the decoration is simple. Typical reasons? Reindeers, stars, sleds… Of course, in light tones and natural finishes; like the pineapples that you can see in the image or the balls lined with rope or wool. Ornaments and tree (€265) by Flamant. If you bet on a natural fir, place it near the window, so that it receives light during the day and you can ventilate it.
13 A FOREST FOR CHILDREN
Surely this idea will drive your little ones crazy. The traditional fir tree has been replaced by a tree full of funny forest animals, from squirrels that climb the trunk to deer, beavers, sloths… Parlane’s Christmas tree.
14 A CHRISTMAS TREE FULL OF DEW AND BIRDS

If the fir tree already has lights, you save money and complications with the garlands of lights. It is from El Corte Ingles (€109) and has 150 lights.
21 IN SILVER AND GOLD
Place the tree near the window but without reducing the light in the room. Hang ornaments according to the style of the house from its branches; like these classics, in tune with the metal objects on the low tables. Candlesticks (from €42) and candle holders (€13), from the Greengate firm.
