And guess what? 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.

"It's time to get building!"

"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 (another) cup of cheer." Sounds pretty easy, right?

Well, people are absolutely loving the idea...

Check out some of my favorite boozy masterpieces!

Let's start off with this one! It's amazing, isn't it?

This one looks like the perfect living room feature.

I mean, at least you won't have leaves everywhere, right?

But I'd hate to see one of these falling to the floor...

That would be messy and very dangerous... Yikes.

At least they're nice to look at!

The reflection of the twinkling lights against the bottles is actually beautiful.

And this user decided to put theirs outside...

At least it saves them from decorating.

Would you ever consider trading your tree in for one of these?

I mean, you'd have to drink a lot of wine, but hey, I ain't complaining!

It takes a lot of dedication...

But this user managed it!

One of my favorites has to be this one...

It's very neat. All it's missing is a few more twinkling lights!

Depending on how big your tree ends up, you can let people know what you've been drinking...

So basically, you're killing 2 birds with 1 stone here.

Now, this is what I'm talking about!

The lights on this little masterpiece are gorgeous!

I mean, you have to be pretty edgy to invest in one of these...

And they might be hard to dismantle, but it's worth it!

And this final one is made from beer bottles too...

It gives it a more accurate "layered" effect.
