How to make an alternative Christmas tree

Tired of the same ol’ leafy trees? Here’s another option. (You just need 1,050 glass bottles…)

WORRYING ABOUT THE mountain of recycling that lies ahead of you following the Christmas party season?

One way to reuse those glass bottles and still retain the festive spirit (figuratively speaking) is to create a rather unique alternative Christmas tree.

Materials required: 1,040 bottles, 200 lights, 300m wire, 1.5m lamp and a good bit of spare space.

A steady hand and a high level of patience and are also recommended.
