Christmas tree's signal that the festive season is beginning. Which ever way you dress it up is up to you, whether you douse it in tinsel or simply hang chocolates, it's your festive creative expression that perfectly sums up your household.

However, some legends have decided to head down the less traditional route and create Christmas tree's out of wine bottles. Incredible scenes.

Let's face it, everybody enjoys a little tipple over the festive period but these people have really paid a homage to wine (let's hope it was mulled).


Crazy as it sounds, they actually look pretty good, especially when the fairy lights hit the coloured glass.

Cast your mind back to last year and House Beautiful magazine rolled out some handy tips on how to construct the perfect tree with the only requirements being empty bottles, easy, right?

The mag said: "Now that you’ve got your supplies, it’s time to get building (while simultaneously drinking, probably). Place your wine rack where you want your tree to go and wrap the frame in string lights.

"It’s just like decorating a regular tree, except pine needles aren’t sticking you in the face every time you wrap your lights around.

"Now that things are seriously lit, start stacking your empty bottles, working from the ground up.

"Once you’ve got your bottles stacked, add one at the top to look like a tree topper. Plug in your lights and pour yourself a cup of cheer."

If you and your housemates don't want to fork out 20 quid for a tree we think this is the perfect alternative. Once deadlines are out the way, we think it's time you got creative. Enjoy!
