People Are Using Their Empty Wine Bottles To Make Christmas Trees

Christmas 04/12/2019

When it comes to Christmas, some people prefer to take the more tradtional route when it comes to decorating, while others opt to go a little outside the square…

Like these people who have put their empty wine bottles to good use - rather than have them go in the recycling!

Last year, House Beautiful magazine gave some handy hints about how to construct the perfect tipsy tree, with the only requirements being empty wine bottles, tiered bottle drying racks and Christmas string lights.

According to House Beautiful:

Now that you’ve got your supplies, it’s time to get building (while simultaneously drinking, probably). 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.

Now that things are seriously lit, 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 a cup of cheer.
