However, this year, some people have decided to go for a more alternative and hand-made masterpiece for their homes, as opposed to the usual green pine tree.

Some of the edgier folk online 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!

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.

“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?

Well, people are absolutely loving the idea…

Because who wouldn’t?

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.

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.

Are you willing to swap out your leafy tree for a boozy one? Of course, you are! And if you’re stuck on deciding how you want to decorate your tree this year, then keep scrolling for some Potter-fied inspirations!
