Christmas tree of bottles sparkles in Lithuania

VILNIUS, Lithuania — Here’s a recycling project just for the holidays: A 4-meter (13.2-feet) tall Christmas tree made of 1,100 empty bottles of champagne and sparkling water.

 

Lithuanian policeman Dalius Valukonis says he spent three years and hundreds of hours of his free time to create the tree using bottles he got from restaurants, bars, family and friends.

 

The non-drinker said Saturday a metal structure with special hooks and construction foam holds the bottles in place. It’s an eye-catcher that makes motorists in the town of Lazdijai near the Polish border snap pictures.

 

Valukonis says he intends to build something even more impressive next year.
