Build Your Own Sustainable Christmas Tree
Have you ever considered building your own Christmas tree? Here are a few ideas for creating a festive substitute, utilizing reclaimed wood.
Above: The PossibiliTree is designed by architect Richard Babcock, who was “tired of finding, hauling, displaying, watering, and disposing of the bulky, needle-dropping, space-guzzling evergreen every Christmas.” The tree, which is handmade using reclaimed or “deadfall” wood, is available in a 2- or 3-foot tabletop model or a 6-foot-tall suspended version.
Above: Ingrid Jansen’s The (Christmas) Trees are crafted out of various reclaimed wooden planks.
