It’s December again, and we all know what it means. It’s finally that time of the year again when we feel the smell of Christmas wafting through the air.
One of the best things about the festive season is the actual Christmas tree, and some people have opted for a more modern twist on the old tradition for this year. Instead of getting a normal tree, just like anyone else, some people have decided to take matters into their own hands and create a true masterpiece by themselves: A Christmas tree out of empty wine bottles.
Yup, you read that right. Just imagine that in the corner of your living room! Marvelous, isn’t it?
House Beautiful magazine has given us some good tips on how to make the “wine bottle” tree. As it turns out, 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 like.
“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.”
