My husband and I make an unconventional tree every December. This year we used an old tire painted white and cut up 40 ft of PVC pipe to create the tree shape.
A plastic bucket from Home Depot was thrown in to add another large circular shape. After securing each piece with hot glue we used gold painted accents, ornaments, and fairy lights for decorations. Enjoy!

This is how it looked finished
This is what we used
Cutting PVC into small circles with a circular saw
3 different sized PVC for size variation
Hot glue worked surprisingly well to place the PVC and bucket pieces at different angles
