3. Green Things and Mirror Christmas Tree

All the green of a normal tree without needles or tacky plastic. Also useful if you happen to have loads of green things and a spare mirror lying around.

5. Upside Down/Corner Christmas Tree

Doesn't take up any floor-space and perfect for fans of Day Of The Triffids as it looks like it's crawling into your room. it also looks like something else if you have a dirty mind.

12. Draw Your Own Christmas Tree

Just cover one wall with chalkboard paint, and have at it. Can be whatever size you want and you get to create all of the decorations. It's even fun to dispose of.

18. Coat Hanger Christmas Tree

For the truly lazy and disinterested. Your clothes might have to spend some time in a heap on the floor, but if this sort of tree appeals to you, the chances are that they already do.

19. Wooden Pallet Christmas Tree

Nails, wood and that's it. If you have loads of pallets lying around, this'll play. Splinters are the only risk (and in my mind, those are still preferable to needles).
