Granny Crafter’s elf tree inspired me to seek out other unusually, decorated trees. Here is a few I stumbled across:
The Mountain Dew Xmas Tree
Imagine a tree made with 400 empty cans of Mountain Dew. David Barshow and four of his friends, constructed the tree in four days. Hey, that’s a lot of Mountain Dew to drink, even if it’s split among 5 people!
The Upside Down Xmas Tree
Now, something that is really bizarre is the upside down Xmas tree. Eastern European people hang their trees upside down to symbolize the Holy Trinity. Nowadays, these trees are either attached to the ceiling like a chandelier or placed upside-down in a special tree stand. Are we living in an upside-down world?
Recycle Plastic Bottle Xmas Tree
This tree was created with 5 gallon recycled water bottles and PVC pipes. It was created to bring awareness about the importance of recycling.
With the next tree, we move away from garbage to something quite expensive, diamonds. Soo Kee Jewellery came first with the idea of creating a Diamond Christmas ‘tree’. This magnificent creation is literally worth a million bucks, since it’s one of the world’s most expensive Christmas trees. Encrusted with thousands of dazzling diamonds totaling 913 carats, 3,762 delicate crystal beads and decorated with almost 500 lights, the ‘tree’ weighted more than 3000 kg. Its value has been estimated at US $1,550,000 in 2007.!
