Recycled Christmas Tree

tinfoilhatDecember 2, 2011

10' tall Christmas tree made with rebar and pipe from junk pile. Hanging ornaments are painted cotton gin saw blades with broken mirror pieces that create a dancing pattern of light on the ground as they turn in the wind.

This is an AZ Christmas tree so it's topped with a roadrunner instead of an angel.

Very interesting! Sure brightens up that area, just like a decorated tree is supposed to do! Clever to add mirror pieces to get more glitz! Jan

Most areas will collect trees after week or two weeks after Christmas for recycling. At the time of recycling they are chopped into mulch, used to slow down erosion or added to compost. Christmas trees are biodegradable .
