this alternative christmas tree by carla szabo is the sixth one in the project i’m running on the blog until christmas day. i’m very excited to show you the 7+1 alternative christmas trees! we are trying to show you that we can celebrate with little to no costs, only with some patience and a bit of imagination. are you in?
carla szabo is my favourite romanian jewelery designer. i love her pieces. they are not necessarily decorative, but rather conceptual. they look very modern and i often identify with her themes. usually, i’ll be wearing at least one of her pieces!
carla did a pocket knife christmas tree. it fans in and out, depending if you want to store it or use it. you can take a look at how simple and efficient the design is. i like the minimalism of the tree. the decorations are included in the collapsible branches. and i love the contrasting pop of red of the plexiglas star on top!
i love carla’s foldable and re-usable christmas tree! i can totally see myself making an uglier and less durable version of it with some cardboard and a cutter. i just need to find some shiny, red cardboard for the star!
