We have our eye on this in the Sale:

What do you think are the chances that it might come down in price again? It's a Marmite type of tree methinks so maybe not going to appeal to everyone? It's just that we've had the same one for a fair few years and it's time for something a bit more stylish and different....

here no offence but surely you could really easily do that yourself? and where would you store it?

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Not my cup of Earl Grey TBH.
But I'm the sort of person who could spend £150 on it and it would look like a pile of twigs painted gold.
My very artistic sister would hang a few well chosen decorations on it and it would look like Midas had the tree.

BTW I did similar (though not 6' tall) with twigs from our pear tree painted white for Easter last year.
(Twigs, white paint, wedged into a pot of putty to weight it and hold firm.The pot put in a pretty decorated pot. Then hung with decorated eggs from Poundland shop)

It was lovely smile

Its a bit twig like to be a christmas tree smile imo of course ;)

It is nice though, kinda looks like an all year round type of decoration rather than just christmas though

Don't think its enough to be an actual christmas time christmas tree..

Although it obviously depends on your style and what you plan to hang on it smile hope it drops down in price some more smile

I admit defeat - you have talked me down sad. I can see that whilst in theory it is quite striking (if you like that type of thing) it is impractical for storage, the DCs would probably impale themselves on the twigs when having a spat and/or break the twig bits off so it would be knackered in a matter of days...

Has anyone actually seen any good Christmas Tree bargains online though? Any pointers would be most helpful!
