Just because you live in the world's tiniest apartment doesn't mean you don't have room for a Christmas tree (it just might not be the 7-foot giant of your childhood dreams). And to prove it to you, we fit three versions of a small-space tree into this adorable 288-square-foot apartment in Brooklyn. If this place has room for three trees, you certainly have enough space for one.

Whether your home is small, teeny-tiny or the littlest apartment anyone has ever seen, one of these alternative trees will work for your space:

Option #1: You Live in a Small Space

Our solution: Elevate a small tree

If you don't have enough room for a full-grown fir, but you don't mind giving up a couple feet of floor space, take a 2- to 3-foot-tall tree (we adopted our adorable tree from Silvertip Tree Farm in California!) and prop it up on a side table or stool. The space under the table is the perfect spot to pile up presents.

Option #2: Your Apartment is Teeny-Tiny

Our solution: Choose a tabletop tree

If your space is way too small to sacrifice floor space for a tree even one month out of the year, try a low-maintenance tabletop tree using a real pine branch. Watch the video to see how we assembled ours in just a couple minutes. Trim this little Charlie Brown-style tree with a few ornaments, then let it make merry on a bookshelf or countertop.

Option #3: You Have the Littlest Home Ever

Our solution: Make a tree wall hanging

Okay, so if you literally don't even have a shelf to spare, it's time to turn to one of our favorite small space tricks: work the walls. Print a reusable fabric wall hanging from Spoonflower, or order a large engineering print from your local print shop. Pair it with our magnetic hanging frame, and boom—you can have an entire Scandi-style forest without taking up a single inch of living space.

Special thanks: To Silvertip Tree Farm for the adorable 3-foot fir tree we nicknamed "Matthew," and to Spoonflower for the pretty fabric wall hanging.
