EVERY year new Christmas tree trends appear, but one woman is taking it back to basics with her minimalistic look.
The mum has made an incredible ‘floating’ Christmas tree – out of fishing line, a clothes rail and some old board.
She came up with the idea as part of an Elf on the Shelf prank, and people are seriously impressed with how it turned out.
The mum shared her minimalist tree to Facebook group Kmart Home Decor & Hacks Australia, where she said: “Oops! My son's elf Trixie made the tree disappear.
“For anyone interested in making: All baubles from kmart (of course!)
“Fishing line from $2 shop. Cheaper than from kmart.”
The mum, thought to be from Australia, explained she used a freestanding clothes rail to create the look, saying: “I hung the board using fishing line to the freestanding rail.”
She tied on baubles in strategic places, and while she used fishing line, you could probably use fine thread to re-create the look.
Her novel tree has gone down a storm online, with hundreds of people liking her unique tree.
Commenting on the design, one person said: “You are very very clever!”
Another wrote: “That is the best thing I’ve seen.”
A third posted: “That's dedication.”
Someone else thought: “A good job! amazing well done.”
While this person added: “Maybe we need to up our game.”
