With three weeks until Christmas, families have festively decorated their homes – and some have opted for unique decorative trees.

From a Star Wars-inspired themed tree to keeping it simple and making festive pillars with baubles, shoppers with a range of budgets have been sharing their creations on Facebook.

Another woman decided to make a Christmas tree out of sticks and a third chose to hang her tree from the ceiling to ensure it would not be attacked by pets.

A creative shopper bought baubles from Bunnings Warehouse to make topiaries for Christmas.

Alongside images on Facebook, she wrote, “Christmas tree made from Kmart’s huge baubles. Easy and fun to make.’

She also shared the six-step process, which requires a no-glue hot glue gun.

How to make baubles:

1. Pull the top hook off the bauble

2. Using a small hacksaw, carefully cut off the end where the hanging part was clipped on.

3. Heat a hot glue gun without glue. Once hot, carefully insert the hot tip into the opposite end of the bauble and melt a hole in it

4. Find a suitable pot you like and mix plaster of paris to put the dowel in. Let that all go

5. Thread Christmas baubles onto the dowel

6. Once you have screwed the baubles onto the dowel, fill the gaps with smaller baubles, or you can leave the large baubles sitting flat in the jar

A mother of three from Newcastle also shared her household’s impressive Star Wars-themed tree, which looked just like Darth Vader.

“House full of boys, we went a little different this year,” the mother wrote on Facebook.

The black tree was decorated with silver, red and black ornaments from Kmart along with a Darth Vader costume from Big W.

The tree was decorated with Darth Vader’s lightsaber, mask and cape.

Other Star Wars fans were deeply impressed by the unique tree.

Another said, ‘Omg my seven year old son would love that tree, he’s obsessed with Star Wars. Can’t wait to show him this when he wakes up in the morning. He goes [have his] stunned.’

Although some admitted that their children would be afraid to see the silhouette at night.

On Facebook, a fourth woman shared images and wrote, “This year with the forest theme for Christmas, all from Kmart except the tree.”

No glue, scissors or zip ties are required as the branches are simply wrapped in the rope hanging from a hook on the wall.

Branches of varying lengths are needed to create the triangular shape of a tree; the smallest stick should be placed at the top and the longest at the bottom.
