We’ve already taken a look at a few unusual Christmas trees in earlier posts, but some are so cleverly designed, so inventive, we thought they merited a list of their own. Here are 15 wonderfully alternative Christmas trees, which we hope will inspire you to do something a bit different with yours. Enjoy!
1. Tree of Branches
This tree made entirely of branches is the perfect choice for the more rustic home.
2. Tree Mobile
A metallic foil paillette tree mobile? Why not? As long as it still glitters and shines like a real Christmas tree.

A Christmas tree made out of antlers anyone? Great if you’re looking to foster that hunting lodge feel in your home.
