Every year after Christmas,
Christmas trees are dumped on the streets.
MORE THAN 2 MILLION XMAS TREES ARE SOLD IN THE NETHERLANDS
A big bunch of them end up outside. Apart from me feeling sorry for these trees (you feel that too don't you?) I also thought it really was a waste of all that beautiful wood. Evergreen wood is very strong and has a gorgeous pattern.
So, for the past three years after New Years Day, I went outside late at night, and like a true mad woman, brought my saw and took the Christmas tree trunks to my workshop. I let the wood dry and started my project: I wanted to use the wood to create something new and close the loop. And show people how 'trash' can be treasured.
So I create Christmas trees, made from Christmas trees, to hang in your Christmas tree.
How cool would it be to have generations of Christmas trees in your Christmas tree? Or maybe your Christmas tree from last year, in your Christmas tree this year? Next to all your other Christmas ornaments, these babies will give your tree a friendly look and you will have a great story to tell your friends and family when they come over for a gluhwein. Plus, they are unbreakable, so cat proof.
Want to recycle this years Christmas tree?
Don't trow away your tree, just chop off the trunk and send it to me. I will make a custom handmade ornament for you for your 2018 tree (or multiple ones, depending on the size of the trunk)

Now that's a big tree...
Last year, the great people of Nederlands Hout called me and offered me the Christmas Tree on the main square of my hometown, Haarlem. I said YEASH of course! We let the wood dry for 9 months, chopped him up and created new Christmas decorations from all that wonderful wood. And you can now buy them here!
Put it back where it came from.
When I collected the wood, I took pictures of the places in my hometown where I found the Christmas trees and cut of the trunks. I wrote down the locations so I could come back and hang the little xmas trees back on the spot where I found the big tree. I put a sign next to it saying: 'Made from your old Christmas tree'. MERREXMAS fellow citizens!
Mer-re xmas everybody!
Don't throw your tree away, hang it in your 2018 Christmas tree
