The PET bottle Christmas tree is a beautiful, practical, environmentally correct and super low-budget option for this Christmas. The main element of this type of tree is sustainability, where items that are thrown away enter a new cycle and have other uses. Plus, you can put your DIY skills into practice and make your own personal tree for your holiday celebrations.
The material allows a lot of variety and creativity when assembling your Christmas tree from PET bottle : You can enjoy the green or transparent packaging and play with different colors and lights. The textures can also vary a lot depending on the technique you are using, there are models that use the correct format of the PET bottle and others that ask for cuts to make the reference less obvious.
This is a decoration that serves both inside and outside the house, not only part of the decoration of the room, but also the garden, courtyard or public places such as the city square, entrance of the residential complex and courtyard of the school.

For those of you who want to be sustainable but don’t want to wrap the shape of the PET bottle in the decoration, cutting the plastic from the bottles into strips helps to de-signify the material a bit and still have the creative freedom to assemble your tree as you want.

Plastic can be cut, folded and handled as desired. To shape a tree, simply put all of the inserts in a spiral wire. This makes your relationship with PET bottles less obvious and more creative.
