Christmas is just a baubles throw away, and speaking of decorations, one mom has gone viral for her incredible tree made out of empty wine bottles.
Yep, that’s right, and it’s inspired hundreds to get involved. Take a look at some of the best below…
Now that we’re officially in December, it is acceptable to start putting Christmas decorations up.
There’s nothing better than picking out the perfect Christmas tree…
It’s a time when the whole family gets involved.
However, this year, some people have decided to go for a more alternative masterpiece for their homes, as opposed to the usual green pine tree.
Some of the more edgier folk have decided to trade in their classic tree for a wine bottle version. That’s right, this year is all about the wine. And the best thing about it is that it’s the perfect excuse to start drinking early!
One mom has shared her tree, giving us all some insight into her favorite tipple, and people have shared their ideas…
It’s a pretty simple process once you get the hang of things. All you need is a bunch of empty wine bottles, tiered bottle drying racks, and twinkly lights. You can also add some baubles if you’re feeling up for it.
“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.”
“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 (another) cup of cheer.”
Sounds pretty easy, right?
Let’s start off with this one! It’s amazing, isn’t it?
I mean, at least you won’t have leaves everywhere, right?
That would be messy and very dangerous… Yikes.
The reflection of the twinkling lights against the bottles is actually beautiful.
This is what the tree would look like with the lights on and off. And the addition of the snow just adds that extra little bit of something.
At least it saves them from decorating.
I mean, you’d have to drink a lot of wine, but hey, I ain’t complaining!
But this user managed it!
It’s very neat. All it’s missing is a few more twinkling lights!
So basically, you’re killing 2 birds with 1 stone here.
The lights on this little masterpiece are gorgeous!
And they might be hard to dismantle, but it’s worth it!
It gives it a more accurate “layered” effect.
Amazingly, it is made out of a hundred empty Echo Falls wine bottles, which the mom then taped together to make the classic tree shape.
However, the mom didn’t give all her secrets away, refusing to delve into how she assembled it. She captioned her post: “My wine bottle Christmas tree ? I made 6 years ago and still going strong.”
One wrote: “Wow you drank a lot of wine ????? looks fab”
“I reckon I could make this in time for Christmas,” joked another, while a third commented, “Now that is a piece of art ???”
Are you willing to swap out your leafy tree for a boozy one? Of course, you are!
