The World’s Top 10 Most Unconventional Christmas Trees

Some people have real ones, some have plastic ones and some people (like myself) even have fakes ones with built in lights! I am of course talking about Christmas trees! We all think out own trees are works of art, but some people like to make a nice festive tree out of anything they can find, so I would like to show you….

It might only be 8ft tall, but this Christmas tree would set you back more than most of us will make in a life time! Made from 6 pounds of pure gold it took 15 craftsmen four months to make it! I think I might stick to my plastic one.

This rather stunning festive tree is made from over 230 bicycles and is a quite impressive 39ft tall! Seen in a shopping mall in Shenyang it is a representation and monument to the amount of people killed while on a bicycle in the city streets that year.

2 – CD/DVD’s (New York, USA)

Made by the artist Tom Deininger created a huge tree made entirely from used CD’s and DVD’s! Best of all is that it was all held together cassette tape and placed on a bed of the same stuff! Eco-Friendly, festive and rather beautiful, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Anthony Schmitt Christmas Tree Made From Shopping Carts / Trolleys

1 –  Shopping Carts / Trolleys (California, USA)

Looking even more amazing than a real one, this tree made by artist Anthony SchmittIn is entirely made from shopping carts! The artist says that the tree “symbolizes both generosity and abundance, as well as acknowledging those less fortunate”, but I see it as a point that Christmas has become a compulsion to spend and lost its original meaning.

    Ok, I have to admit that is rather impressive, but sadly i have just found that because you told me about it. Maybe next year it will make the top 10.

    Why no revolutionary Xmas Tree in Ukraine??? Looks very unique

  3. Definitely preferable to the glass tubes!

  4. The bears is cool, and easier to survive if it fell on you!

  5. It’s hard to pick a favorite. I love the bears, the bikes and the CD/DVD cassette tape tree. By far the most photogenic.

  6. Thank you so much, it is nice to hear that.

Which one did you like?
