The pagan roots of the modern Christmas tree tradition may have considered the evergreen needles of the pine to be essential to the winter ritual. This Stick Christmas Tree, on the other hand, has an entirely different physical appeal.

This example has been assembled from segments of branches. They've been left with their bark in tact and they exude the natural beauty of their crooked forms. The general conical shape of the Stick Christmas Tree is created though the stacking of longer branches on the bottom to shorter ones on the top. This winsome specimen has a wonderfully rustic, crafty and yet completely contemporary look about it.
