Go retro this Christmas! An aluminum Christmas tree would make a groovy addition to your Christmas decorations!
Retro is in. And the aluminum Christmas tree made popular in the late 1950s for its "futuristic" look is back by popular demand.
Back in style
If you look online, you can find a great selection of vintage aluminum Christmas trees that were originally manufactured in the 1950s, still in mint condition. Some even in their original boxes! Or, if you want a new aluminum Christmas tree, you can easily purchase one. Manufacturers are coming out with a wide selection of new styles of aluminum Christmas trees to meet the demand.
Many sizes and styles
You can buy a 2-foot high aluminum Christmas tree to set on your table, or you can buy a larger tree to be the focal point of your holiday decorations. The 6-foot tall aluminum Christmas trees are the most popular size. The aluminum trees have long-lasting aluminum foil branches that insert into a hardwood trunk. The branches are of equal length and are interchangeable.
The bigger the tree, the more branches you'll have to assemble. For example, the 6-foot tall aluminum Christmas tree has 60 branches. But even when there are a lot of branches to insert into the trunk, it is easy to do, so it goes very quickly. Plus, the aluminum Christmas tree is very lightweight. A finished 6-foot tall tree only weighs four pounds, so you can easily move it from room to room.
For a real retro look, you can use a color light wheel at the foot of your aluminum Christmas tree for a psychedelic effect. Groove on, man!
