    Default Table-top christmas tree

    Heya, just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to where to find a nice table-top christmas tree? (I'm in Melbourne). Doesn't necessarily need to be a traditional looking tree.

    Have decided against putting the normal sized one out this year with a 1 year old at home who gets up to lots of mischief.

    TIA x

    I saw a really cute wood cut out one in Spotlight last year. You paint and decorate it how you want to.
    Otherwise you can usually get small traditional christmas trees. Or you could get those branches with fairy lights on them and arrange them in a nice vase.
    Do a google search, the opportunities are endless

    If it's to stop little hands from getting to the tree, you could put a playpen around the area (this is what we're doing).

    Last year I got some branches from down at the park, painted them white and put them in a large vase on the table. A couple of nice ornaments hanging on the branches and it was done!

    I got heaps of positive comments about it and will do it again this year.

    Thanks ladies I actually really like that idea with using the branches!

    Also hadn't thought of spotlight either so thank you

    I was thinking about doing this but my house is really small and the area I have the tree isn't big enough to have a playpen around it

    Default Table-top christmas tree

    I got my super clever DH to make some last year. I just found a tree shape online and photocopied it to the sizes I wanted. He added a slit in the top of one side and the bottom of the other so they fit together.

    I like them plain. But u could easily decorate or paint. Easy and cheap. Just from Mdf.

    I bought some real little trees at a nursery the other day, called Christmas Star (Picea glauca). They would be perfect for a table tree! About $30
