If you live in a small space, don't want to deal with a big tree, or just want something really spectacular this season, this deconstructed wall tree is for you. To make it, all you need are LED fairy lights, a few ornaments, evergreen garlands, and Command™ Decorating and Light Clips. Let's forget the Fraser fir and get creative this Christmas!
How We Hung Our Tree
Using Command™ Hooks and Clips, this project works with almost any type of garland, plus a string of battery-operated LED lights! We love real evergreen trimmings from the tree lot, since they fill your home with that classic Christmas-tree smell, but you could also use magnolia, everlasting freeze-dried boxwood, or even metallic tinsel garlands for a retro concept.

Gather Your Supplies & Get Going!
Ready to trim your tree? Here's the full list of supplies you'll need:
- Command™ Clear Medium Hooks
- Command™ Large Forever Classic Oil Rubbed Bronze Metal Hook
- Command™ Medium Picture Hanging Strips
- Command™ Clear Mini Hooks
- Command™ Clear Decorating Clips
- Evergreen Clippings (or Other Garlands)
- LED Battery-Operated Fairy Lights
- Flat & Small Spherical Ornaments
First, we measured and cut the evergreen to 4 different lengths, hanging each branch using Command™ Clear Medium Hooks. Next, we hung the star (a repurposed vintage candle holder) with a Command™ Large Forever Classic Oil Rubbed Bronze Metal Hook. Then, we wrapped the garlands with lights using Command™ Clear Mini Hooks, and secured the battery to the wall with Command™ Medium Picture Hanging Strips. (To hide the battery out of sight, we tucked it behind the garland.) Last, we hung ornaments from the garland using Command™ Clear Decorating Clips.
The best part of this project? No hauling a huge Christmas tree to the curb after the holidays are over. With Command™ Brand's damage-free toolkit, it's easy to install and even easier to remove come January 2!
So get creative, hang your wall tree, and share your project to inspire others this holiday season!
