Just because traditional Christmas trees are gorgeous, doesn't mean your holiday decorations have to look like everybody else's. You can upcycle, modify, chop, and paint, and come up with your own Christmas tree this Christmas. After all, not everyone wants to "Martha Stewart" their way through life, right? So this year, get inspired by these uber creative Christmas trees that are anything but basic. Some of them are pretty clever while others are the embodiment of lazy. A few of them are pretty weird, but most of them are totally #ChristmasTreeGoals. But who are we to judge? We'll leave that up to you!
