People are creating Christmas trees from their empty wine bottles

There are plenty of things we associate with our favorite holiday of the year. Presents, inordinate amounts of food, and cheesy Christmas hits are all part and parcel of the festive season.

And of course, there's also the Christmas tree - a vital addition to your living room during the holiday season. But if you're the sort of person who likes to go all out for the festive season, why not make your own one out of empty wine bottles?

Because it seems to be something of a trend this year. Just check out these fabulous creations:

Last year, House Beautiful magazine provided its readers with some tips as to how best to construct a Christmas tree from wine bottles.

House Beautiful writes:

"Now that you’ve got your supplies, it’s time to get building (while simultaneously drinking, probably). Place your wine rack where you want your tree to go and wrap the frame in string lights.

"It’s just like decorating a regular tree, except pine needles aren’t sticking you in the face every time you wrap your lights around.

"Now that things are seriously lit, start stacking your empty bottles, working from the ground up.

"Once you’ve got your bottles stacked, add one at the top to look like a tree topper. Plug in your lights and pour yourself a cup of cheer."

And if you needed any more proof that this Christmas is going to be a boozy one, well, Amazon is now selling a wine stocking that holds two liters of the beverage (or, of course, any other drink).

Known as the 'Stocking Wine Dispenser', the item is one of Amazon's best sellers this holiday season and will set you back just £9.95.
