24 of the Most Creative Christmas Trees We’ve Ever Seen

Christmas is truly a wonderful time of the year, and one of the things that makes it wonderful is all of the beautiful decorations. First and foremost, there’s the Christmas tree.

Christmas trees come in all shapes and sizes. Many people have a traditional tree standing tall in their living room, and some people choose a smaller tree that fits on a table or counter. 

While some people are team real tree, other people are team fake tree, and other people yet are team rainbow Christmas tree. No, we’re not talking about the decorations. There’s actually an artificial tree that looks like a rainbow.

If you think a tree with branches that are rainbow colored is a little unusual, you haven’t seen anything yet. It turns out that a Christmas tree doesn’t actually have to be a tree at all.

Many creative people out there are celebrating the holidays with something that’s tree-shaped but composed by whatever they feel like using. For some, this is because they don’t have room for or the means to get a normal Christmas tree. For others, it’s just because they want to be original. Either way, we’re loving it!

Here are 24 of the most unusual yet most awesome Christmas trees we’ve ever seen.
