Best news ever: You have a legitimate excuse to drink extra wine all year long. Here's the deal — you can make a Christmas tree out of wine bottles, and even though it might sound a little tacky, the end result is seriously stunning. We're for sure swapping our evergreens for vino this year.

It sounds complicated, and when you see the end result, you might be slightly intimidated, but it's actually stupid simple and totally idiot-proof. Seriously, setting up your live tree and stand is way more of a hassle with this. The only hitch is that you need a copious amount of wine bottles lying around your house, but we're willing to bet that's a challenge you'll fully accept to get this job done.
What You'll Need:
- Empty wine bottles
How It's Done:
Now that you've got your supplies, it's time to get building (while simultaneously drinking, probably). Place your wine rack where you want your tree to go and wrap the frame in string lights. It's just like decorating a regular tree, except pine needles aren't sticking you in the face every time you wrap your lights around.
Now that things are seriously lit, start stacking your empty bottles, working from the ground up.
Once you've got your bottles stacked, add one at the top to look like a tree topper.
Plug in your lights and pour yourself a cup of cheer.
