Are fairy lights and dangling ornaments a breakable objects hazard? Do your coworkers not want to spend January picking pine needles out of the lobby?
There are plenty of reasons not to have a traditional Christmas tree at work, but if you’re missing Christmas decorations, you might be able to convince your colleagues to put up some last-minute cheer with these clever ideas that will make a fun team-building exercise, show what you're about and make anyone who walks in smile. Here are some pictures of creative and fitting trees that people made at work with whatever they could get their hands on.
You could also recreate some of these ideas at home if you skipped getting a tree this year and you have a well-stocked bookshelf or office. These people show that you can turn just about anything into a Christmas tree!

Another reason why more people each year hesitate to get a Christmas tree is the perceived impact on nature. Most people are unsure whether the greener choice is a real tree, or an artificial one that saves another tree from being cut down.
It turns out that environmental organizations don't recommend contributing to the manufacturing and shipping of plastic products by getting an artificial tree. (Of course, if you already have an artificial tree, you should make the most of it and use it for at least 10 years.)

Real trees provide all the oxygen-producing benefits of any tree while they are being grown, and can be disposed of by composting, so they are actually recommended over artificial trees.
But if you still can’t stand the thought of cutting one down as a decoration, and you're not prepared to maintain a potted tree, assembling a creative “tree” out of whatever you have lying around might be the solution you’re looking for. Try using things that you already have a lot of, and preferably that you can use again for their intended purpose after you disassemble the tree.
