By now, everyone who celebrates Christmas has a tree or two (or perhaps one in every room) up, decked out in colorful baubles and twinkling lights for the festive season. Most people opt for either a real fir tree or a plastic version that bears a striking resemblance to the popular evergreen. In recent years, companies have even sprung up all around the globe that allow people to rent a tree for the festive season before returning it in early January.
Some people, however, have come up with far more creative and wonderful ideas to adorn their homes over Christmas, and the results can be truly stunning, as Powerful Mind noted. From trees made out of nothing resembling green foliage, to those made up of just the decorations that usually adorn the traditional Christmas tree, the power of imagination has proved endless with some of these divine takes on the usual holiday decor.
There is a Christmas tree for every season — whether you enjoy a snowy white Christmas or a hot and sunny one — and for every unique individual, and the more imaginative ones have made their own creations to match. Here are just a few of the beautiful creations some people have come up with.
One for the minimalist
Don’t have the time or the patience to decorate a full tree? Or simply don’t have the funds to buy one? This is a simple take on a Christmas tree that can prove to be just as pretty (and far less cleanup) than an actual tree.
A string of tinsel, a tree-topper, and a few baubles of your choice is all it takes!
You can also go even simpler and use a piece of colored string or ribbon to make this creation if you’re really in a bind.
There are also other minimalist options, ones that are almost as two-dimensional, but with an added bit of flair in between (literally).
This metal frame provides the perfectly sized spaces in which to place your favorite baubles, or stars, angels, or any other decorations you might fancy.
Snowflakes, mushrooms, and acorns work just as well with this design!
One for the medical practitioners
Hospitals and dentists offices are not places anyone wants to find themselves on or around Christmas, but from time to time it can’t be helped. Doctors and nurses do their best to create festive cheer for their patients when they have the misfortune of having to make a visit, and while many have started bringing decorated trees into wards and lobbies, some have much more doctor-y ways of getting in the Christmas spirit.
