- Revellers shared eco-friendly alternatives to Christmas trees on Bored Panda
- A clever librarian use its green books to create a row of shelves shaped like tree
- Elsewhere soldiers used tyres and crates to create their own tree while deployed
Not everyone can face the thought of the needle-dropping that comes with a real Christmas tree, but that doesn’t mean you have to reach for the artificial kind.
A group of crafty revelers from around the world have revealed their alternatives to the festive fir, in a fascinating new gallery compiled to Bored Panda.
Many were office workers, who used materials relevant to their industry to create Christmas tree-shaped decorations.
A clever librarian used their green books to create a row of shelves that resembled a tree, while an IT worker did the same- craftily using a stack of monitors.
Elsewhere, soldiers used tyres to create their own tree, while a sheriff’s office used yellow tape and hand cuffs in place of their tree ornaments.
Getting even more creative, a science laboratory grew bacteria in the shape of a Christmas tree for slightly more gruesome decor, while another used glass cylinders in place of baubles.
