My husband and I have a tradition of creating an unconventional Christmas tree every year. Do you remember our DIY Christmas tree from last year on Bored Panda? This year we used mirrors and reclaimed wood to create a futuristic-looking tree. As this decade comes to an end you can say we’ve done a lot of “reflecting”!

With the lights on in the room it’s very plain and reflective, but with the lights off and tree lights on the look changes entirely. The result is very abstract but perfect for entering the year 2020!

Lights on

With a black light and string lights, it goes from elegant to otherworldly

Lights off and tree lights on

I used a black curtain for some shots to cover the mirrors on the wall

First, we removed the mirrors from their frames

We then built boxes to glue the mirrors to

I found cheap full-length mirrors for the wall behind

Broken up mirrors for the mosaic garland. Good thing we aren’t superstitious!

Mosaic garland was added before decorating

Finished! Which effect do you like best?
