Creative Alternative to a Community Tree

Over on Design Boom, I came across this image of a unique and charming version of a community Christmas tree. By encouraging locals to donate the materials used, the tree becomes a sort of homage to the individuals in the community and their personal history.

The tree is made up of plates and cups donated by community members in Hasselt, Belgium. The end result is stunning and represents neighbors coming together. I can't think of a better representation of the Christmas Spirit.
