You Can Now Buy An Upside-Down Christmas Tree If You're Short On Space

In a year which has been well and truly upside down, it's only right that your Christmas tree should be the same.

Introducing the new trend of upside down Christmas trees - the perfect festive home decor hack for people who are tight on space but still want to make their homes as festive as possible.

Made famous by the likes of Ariana Grande and the late Karl Lagerfeld, the quirky tree acts almost as a chandelier, and actually looks pretty spectacular.

The idea is it doesn't take up any room on the floor, and allows for decorations to be showed off from all angles.

Plus, just think of how many conversations it'll start when entertaining (hopefully!) over the holidays.

It might seem like a pretty modern innovation, but believe it or not, the tradition of hanging a Christmas tree upside-down trees actually dates back to the middle ages in Europe, and used to be a religious symbol.

It was also a popular tradition for many families in the 19th century, where it wasn't uncommon for many to hang Christmas trees from the rafters of homes.

You can buy a specially designed upside down tree from loads of places across the web, including Christmas Tree World, where prices start at £19.99.

With a hook to hang the tree from the ceiling, or anywhere else you can hook it on to, this tree even comes professionally strung with dazzling white LED lights, so you don't have to faff around with loads of extras.

You can order the tree in three ft (£19.99) four ft (£44.99) and five ft (£71.99) online.

If it's a snowy Christmas tree you're after, Wayfair have one online, too. It'll cost you £50.99 and looks well and truly festive with white dustings of 'snow' on its branches.

This one really takes festive to the next level.

And if you don't have anywhere to hang your tree from then Amazon have the solution: an upside down Christmas tree on a stand.

The tree, by brand TY&WJ, is six ft and comes with a metal bottom which connects to a pole which holds it in place.

And it'll set you back £140.99.

Another space saving option is the half Christmas tree - a solution for anyone who doesn't have the time, energy or inclination to commit to 360-degree tree decoration.

Offered by retailer Hammacher Schlemmer, the Against The Wall Christmas Tree looks a little, well, bonkers to begin with. Take a look for yourself:

But once sitting against a wall and styled with the deccies, ribbons or tinsel of your choosing, they're oh-so-festive - and appear as though they're magically popping out of the wall behind them.

What fun!

Whatever you go for, all we know is that ordinary Christmas trees are so last year.
