Wall Mounted Christmas Tree
Every December my family drives out to our local Christmas tree farm and my husband tries to find the biggest tree that will possibly fit into our home. The scary part is our house isn’t very big. That doesn’t stop Rob from making sure the tree we choose will hit the ceiling and branch out as far as possible in the living room. Last year I believe our Christmas tree was about 9 feet tall and 6 feet wide… in the small living room of our one-story modular home.
When I lived alone in a small basement suite before I got married, I never bothered with a tree. There was no point. I didn’t have enough space, I wasn’t home often enough to enjoy it and who the heck wants to clean up all those needles? Not me, especially now with the gargantuan trees that Rob keeps hauling in.
I decided to come up with a renter friendly wall mounted Christmas tree that people who live in small spaces can enjoy.
This cute tree wall decor can be displayed without ruining the walls with nails and hooks. It is hung with Command™ Brand Hooks and Strips so it can easily be attached to the walls and removed after the holidays without damaging your walls. The strips remove cleanly from your walls without leaving holes or sticky residue.
The wood planks can be stored in a slim box after the holidays and take up very little storage space.
Go grab yourself a cup of hot cocoa and turn on the Christmas tunes. Let’s make a fun wall mounted Christmas tree!
For this project I used slats of bead-board that I had left over from my laundry room make over project. These supplies can be purchased at your local hardware store. Command Brand Strips and Hooks were purchased from my local Target. They are located near the holiday section.

I laid down my bead-board slats and decided how I wanted my tree to look. The tree was measured and taped and the background was painted with red paint.
I used Command Brand Strips to adhere the wood planks to the wall.
- Begin by cleaning the surface with isopropyl rubbing alcohol and wipe gently.
- Let it dry.
- Separate the strips. Press them together until they click
- Remove one green liner and position one set of strips on the back of the wood plank. Press firmly. Repeat. Remove remaining green liners.
- Position each set on the wall and press each set firmly for 30 seconds
- Grab wood piece at the bottom and peel off the surface. Do not pull straight toward you to remove. Firmly press all three areas of each strip for 30 seconds each. Wait one hour to mount planks. Press fasteners firmly together until they click. If item is not level, re-position.
The exact product used was the Picture & Frame Hanging strips. They can hold up to 16 lbs.
Start with the top plank and then work your way down the tree.
Now, decorate with wild abandon!
After waiting an hour for the adhesive to set, you can use smaller Command Brand hooks to attach your twinkle lights and ornaments.
A basket was placed at the foot of the tree to hold the extra twinkle lights. Gifts can be placed on the floor in front of the tree.
