As we get into the holiday spirit, we thought we’d share a very special final Upcycle Idol of the year.This one-off festive edition brings to you, innovation at its finest, with a modern take on a Christmas classic – the tree.
Mountain Dew Christmas Tree. Made from 400 cans of the American fizzy drink, (which colours are conveniently red and green), this impressive tree took over 3 months of drinking and 4 days to construct. We don’t know the names of the guys involved, but whoever they are we salute you for your patience, innovation and sheer determination to put a modern spin on Christmas.
Taking inspiration from the bicycle sculpture in London’s Bermondsey square, this Sydney-based giant Christmas tree is made entirely out of 100 recycled bikes, standing at an impressive 23 foot tall complete with a star on top, constructed using front forks and tyre parts.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the BODO Team! X
