After researching all of the options, I decided to purchase a faux maple tree from Crate & Barrel (sadly, this one is not currently available). I especially love the sparse, minimalist look, muted red tone, and 7.5 ft height.

Artificial maple trees make a statement and do not require a lot of styling. Above all, I would recommend adding a large stone or ceramic planter pot if your tree comes with a small plastic pot. Keep reading for ideas for styling a faux tree in a planter!

In addition to adding a planter, give your faux fall tree room to shine and style the rest of your living room or bedroom simply with earthy fall colors and neutral decor.

I also wanted to mention that I considered choosing a shorter tree and propping it up in a tall basket or large planter to add height. This is a great way to get the look for less, since shorter trees tend to be less expensive. I especially love this autumn eucalyptus tree and this artificial maple tree!

How to Make an Artificial Tree Look Taller

Finally, here is how to make a faux tree look taller! This is a budget friendly option if you already have a large planter pot to use, or want to purchase one to reuse with different season trees.

  1. Place a cardboard box, plastic container, or small planter upside down inside of a large planter.
  2. Place your faux tree inside of the large planter (so it is propped up near the top).
  3. Wrap towels or blankets around the tree pot to make the tree sturdy.
  4. Cover the top with Spanish moss to complete the look.
