Some people have real ones, some have plastic ones and some people (like myself) even have fakes ones with built-in lights! I am of course talking about Christmas trees. We all think our own festive trees are mini-masterpieces, but the ten you are about to see are true works of art. These are some of the most unusual and unconventional Christmas you will ever see, but yet they still give off those festive vibes…
Murano Masters Christmas Tree Made From Glass Pipes
This amazing Christmas tree is made from over 1,000 tubes of Murano glass! Standing at 28ft tall it is a big one for sure and it is said to have weighed over 3 tons! It does have to be said that it looks nice in the dark.
Julian Popko and family Christmas Tree Made From lobster pots
Remember what I said at the beginning of this post?!? Well, this really is a case of “anything they can find” and so I bring you a Christmas tree made from nothing more than local fisherman’s lobster pots! Every year Julian Popko and his family build one of these trees and it is done for the local people, by the local people’s things.
Lyle Wolf Christmas Tree Made From Plastic Christmas Trees
Made by artist Lyle Wolf this tree made from 350 smaller artificial trees and each with its own decorations was 7 storeys tall and took 70 people several weeks to make, it was made to advertise the Yellow Pages, to represent how many smaller things can suddenly become better seen is they are all in one place.
Shogo Kariyazaki Christmas Tree Made From Gold
It might only be 8ft tall, but this Christmas tree would set you back more than most of us will make in a lifetime! Made from 6 pounds of pure gold it took 15 craftsmen four months to make it! I think I might stick to my plastic one.
Christmas Tree Made From Plastic Water Bottles
Every year at Christmas time the Siam Discovery Centre in Bangkok makes amazing trees made entirely from recycled bottles! there were lots of different kinds to choose from, but I went with this one made of massive water cooler bottles.
Christmas Tree Made From Teddy Bears
Made from over 5,000 Conrad Teddy Bears (an official gift of the Conrad Centennial) it really is too cute for words, and super safe because even if you fell into it, it wouldn’t hurt!
Ferrero Rocher Christmas Tree Made From Golden Baubles
Made from over 7,500 golden baubles this impressive tree was made by the Ferrero Rocher Chocolate design team and is one of the most impressive I have ever seen. With no centre supports when you are in the middle, looking up it is simply jaw-dropping.
Christmas Tree Made From Bicycles
This rather stunning festive tree is made from over 230 bicycles and is quite impressive at 39ft tall! Seen in a shopping mall in Shenyang it is a representation and monument to the number of people killed while on a bicycle in the city streets that year.
Tom Deininger Christmas Tree Made From CD’s
Made by the artist Tom Deininger created a huge tree made entirely from used CDs and DVDs! Best of all is that it was all held together cassette tape and placed on a bed of the same stuff! Eco-Friendly, festive and rather beautiful, it doesn’t get much better than this.
Anthony Schmitt Christmas Tree Made From Shopping Carts
Looking even more amazing than a real one, this tree made by artist Anthony Schmitt is entirely made from shopping carts! The artist says that the tree “symbolises both generosity and abundance, as well as acknowledging those less fortunate”, but I see it as a point that Christmas has become a compulsion to spend and lost its original meaning.
