Mum's Homemade Light Up Christmas Tree Is Made Out Of Wine Bottles
Taking to the Facebook group Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK, the mum posted pictures and videos of the special tree she'd made for the festive season six years ago and still uses today.
We say it's special because, as you can see, it's made up of some 100 empty Echo Falls wine bottles.
It's one thing to be able to get through 100 bottles of wine, it's quite another to be standing up straight enough to make a Christmas tree out of them!
The mum has managed to fasten the bottles into a tier shape, so that it looks just like a festive fur tree.
Just in case we were in any doubt as to what it was, she's also topped it with a star and then added fairy lights, which gives the pretty cool effect of the the bottles shimmer and glimmer in the dark. Just like Jesus would have wanted.
Understandably for such an ingenious invention, the mother was reluctant to give too many tips away as to how she'd put the fake tree together. Instead she simply posted: "My wine bottle Christmas tree. I made 6 years ago and still going strong."

Social media users have been quick to praise her work, with the original post on the group itself amassing thouands of likes and hundreds of comments.
One joked: "Wow you drank a lot of wine. Looks fab."
Another added: "I reckon I could make this in time for Christmas", while a third wrote, "Now that is a piece of art."
In other Christmas news, several of the biggest retail and food names out there have been stepping up their offers ahead of the festive period.
McDonald's Christmas menu was made available on Wednesday (18 November), the new menu featuring a Celebrations McFlurry and a Double Big Mac, among other items.
Meanwhile B&M are selling festive musical doormat sensors. The sensor is simply placed under your usual doormat and will play either 'Jingle Bells' or 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas' every time that it's stepped on.
Of course, at this stage it's hard to know how many people will be visiting houses around Christmas day, with England still in the midst of national lockdown until 2 December.
It was recently reported that the Government's health ministers are currently modelling the impact of groups of more than six meeting, with a view to relaxing measures between Christmas Eve and Monday 28 December.
However, nothing has yet been confirmed and any move is likely to be met with as much trepidation as it is excitement, with many fearful of yet another lockdown come January.
