16 Unique Christmas Trees MINUS the Tree (Photos)

I’m old-school, each year our family goes to a local lot and picks out a Douglas Fir which had recently been cut down. Yes, it may not be the “greenest” thing to do, but it’s our family tradition. But I may have to rethink this tradition after seeing all the clever, unique and interesting Christmas trees made from a variety of things from wine corks, to burlap scraps to Legos.

Check out these 16 Christmas trees minus the trees:
