50 Alternative Christmas Tree Ideas

From High Heeled Holiday Trees to Exploding Tannenbaum Decor

— November 10, 2014 — Art & Design
These alternative Christmas tree ideas range from high heeled holiday trees to exploding tannenbaums that celebrate the holiday season with a big bang.

While a traditional tree may appeal to the masses, these alternative Christmas tree ideas are more fun and than any run-of-the-mill holiday decor.

A standout from this list is Christian Louboutin's high heel tree that was unvelied as part of the shoe designer's holiday window display. This seasonal tree marries festive details with impeccable styling and is constructed using Louboutin's iconic red-bottomed stilettos.

Another favorite from this list is art collective Luzinterruptus' upcycled tree design that was exhibited in Durham, England's town square. The eco-friendly art piece was built using recycled plastic bags that were illuminated to reveal a gorgeous design.
