A Virtual Christmas Tree Brought to Life

Categories: DIY + How To, Modern Decor + Objects


We were immediately struck by the moody prettiness of this Christmas tree, only to find that we were fooled by a terrific home-made optical illusion—and the most artful no-fuss tree we’ve seen in a while. As illustrated on Almost Makes Perfect, the beauty of opting for this tree is that it requires nothing more than a photograph of a fir tree (in this case, a poetically beautiful photo by Hermann Platzer), enlarged to poster size, and a string of carefully strung baubles. No wonder we suddenly feel like a walk in the woods with camera in tow.
