Here Are the Wackiest Christmas Tree Alternatives People Are Decorating This Year
Is it possible to be too creative? Apparently so.
One of the biggest trends this holiday season appears to be coming up with an alternative version of a Christmas tree. After all, we all love a spruced up, well, spruce, but coming up with a festive alternative can be a great way to showcase your creativity and save a little money in the process. Some of these alt trees, like this plant strung up with lights, are very pretty and perfect for a small space.
Since moving, I now live in a small (but perfect-sized) studio in Chico. I have everything I need… except room for a big Christmas tree in my tiny lil living space. I decided to improvise. I think I'm happier with my version than I would have been otherwise. 🎄 pic.twitter.com/qeqz63hpL3

Others, like this tree made from chocolate ornaments, are both original and yummy.

This "tree" made from polaroids stuck to a life-size cut-out of its maker doing a yoga "tree" pose is highly personalized and fun.
Thanks to all those who joined in with their version of tree pose for my "tree" at Burton Overy Christmas Tree festival – great event for good causes. Classes resume in the beautifully renovated hall in January. #burtonoveryvillagehall pic.twitter.com/L5rCn1L5Ny

And this tree makes good use of all the spare parts left behind by children doing arts and crafts.
Fancy a tree that changes as often as your children want it to? Monksfield Way Children's Centre has created a loose parts Christmas Tree…all you need is a roll of masking tape and any objects from around your home to decorate!! #alternative #ChristmasTree pic.twitter.com/hEAeQ7qFEe

Others, however, are a bit bizarre, like this tree made from blown-up surgical gloves that looks like something out of a child's nightmare.

Or this tree made out of traffic cones.

You gotta admire the craftsmanship that went into welding this one, but it does look a bit Tim Burton-esque.

And you really can't just hang decorations around your shower curtain and call it a tree.

This one is just sad (though bonus points for being eco-friendly!).

And while the idea behind this is sweet, it could have used a better photo.
