Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how geeky are your branches? Baubles and bangles are great for creating classically beautiful Christmas trees, but you know what's even more fun? Stormtrooper helmets, magic wands, ruby slippers, and inflatable KISS tongues! We had a blast repurposing a bunch of costumes and accessories to create 4 awesomely geektastic Christmas trees. We hope these make you giggle, guffaw, and inspire you to create a geeky tree of your own!


4 Geeky Christmas Trees



1. Star Wars Tree

Star Wars Christmas Tree

Who wouldn't want to curl up on a furry Wampa rug with a mug of eggnog and take in the beauty of this tree? It's sure to impress geeks from any galaxy. Never fear if you don't have a Star Wars tree skirt- add a Wampa rug to add Star Wars pizzazz from top to bottom!
