Putting up a Christmas tree before Thanksgiving is kind of like the “no white after labor day” rule… except people actually abide by it. So we’re just going to start brainstorming our decor and then have this thing up tomorrow by 6 a.m. Whether you’re using it as a space-saving, allergen-free substitute for a real tree, or just a welcome addition to your wall art, here are some of our favorite DIY wall trees that we think you’ll love to deck the walls with.

1. Paper Triangle Tree: Merry and bright — this simple tree, using nothing more than triangle-cut pieces of color paper, has you covered on both accounts. (via Brit + Co)

2. Cookie Tree: It doesn’t take much convincing to get us to love a cookie tree. Coordinate with red ribbon and see how easy it is to bake up the tree of your dreams. (via Kotivinkki)

3. Hanging Tree: We love how each row of this tree is a line of the same item repeated. You definitely get a lot more bang for your buck when the ornaments make the tree instead of just decorate it. (via Love It So Much)

4. PVC Tree: Fill in these cut PVC pipes with Christmas knickknacks and ornaments within you holiday color scheme. Before you know it, this piece will go from hardware store bits to a Christmas tradition. (via She Knows)

5. Minimal Ball Tree: It’s time to raid your craft drawer. Cut wooden dowels down in increasing sizes, tie them together and hang your little ornament family. (via Hank and Hunt)

6. Balsa Tree: These twig-like branches hold timeless memories, and when they’re looped together with delightful garland, this tree becomes instantly festive. (via Swoon Studio)

7. Tape Tree: This tree’s best quality is that it’s mobile. You can prop it up in whatever room you want for that Christmas feeling. (via Minted)

8. Chalkboard Tree: If you don’t already have a chalkboard wall in your house, this is definitely the perfect excuse to make one. (via Simply Radiant)

9. Branch Tree: If rustic is more your thing, it doesn’t get more lovely than this. Go on a winter walk and gather up some branches with personality. Mount them on your wall with lights and other natural winter odds and ends. (via Free People)

10. Monochromatic Tree: If you’re drawing your tree, you don’t have to sketch a traditional one. Instead, try drawing a wooden tree and using the straight lines as the base for your decorations. (via Colorfully)

11. Christmas Card Tree: Put those cards to good decorating use by hanging them in an adorable tree shape for all the world to see. (via Home Life)

12. Light Tree: It doesn’t get much easier than this. Just make a tree shape out of white Christmas lights and watch it glow. (via A Merry Mishap)

13. Washi Tape Tree: All your washi dreams are coming true. Last year we made this row of tape trees with much success. You can go big or small to fit them in any area. (via Brit + Co.)

14. Bunting Tree: The shelves. The bunting. The cake plate. Oh, my! This would make quite an elegant statement in an entryway, especially with some Christmas photos in those frames. (via Minted)

15. Minimal Leaf Tree: Just zigzag some twine on your wall, and this tree will certainly encourage regular autumn nature walks. Pin your findings for a new look all the time. (via YOKOO)

16. Honeycomb Tree: Talk about a party tree. If you want people to be ready to party every time they walk into your house, just make one of these, and they’ll never want to leave. (via Studio DIY)

17. Velcro Tree: It’s not often that we use Velcro as garland, but turns out, it’s kind of genius, because duh. You can stick stuff to it. Get some lovely fabric and get to stickin.’ (via Brit + Co.)
