We’ve shared a few different Dalek Christmas trees here over the years, but now, thanks to John Smith, we get to watch a Dalek decorate a tree of its own in this short video E-card entitled “A Very Dalek Christmas”.
How does a murderous cyborg trim a Christmas tree? We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say it’s going to be quite a toasty holiday for this particular Dalek. This awesome little video couldn’t be more perfectly titled.
Santa had better be careful when placing presents beneath this awesome Dalek Christmas tree. Just because it looks festive doesn’t mean it isn’t anything other than hate-filled and hostile.

We’re still trying to figure out who created this fantastic tree. If you know, please contact us so we can update this post with proper credit.
To complete her outfit for an ugly Christmas sweater contest at work, Nikki (of The Scarlett Rose Garden) created this spectacular Christmas tree hairdo. She used a styrofoam cone to give her hair the proper coniferous shape, then painted it green and decorated it like you would an actual Christmas tree - complete with a star on top. It’s nothing short of amazing, as is that impressively hideous sweater.
The days have grown cold and short, Lovecraftian Solstice Carols can be heard on the wind, and in the Portland, OR home of Maika, co-editor of the Geyser of Awesome, the spot on the living room floor where betentacled trees have stood in years past has suddenly begun to darken and roil. Cthulhumas approaches and it’s time to pay tribute.
Dread Cthulhu still waits dreaming, but this year the Cthulhumas tree awoke. Its eyes are a pair of Giant Christmas Tree Googly Eyes that were altered with spray paint, paint pens, and markers. The wings were made using wire hangers, floral wire and tape, green cellophane, and the helpful guidance of a wing-making Instructable created by mercifulmaenad. Small sacrifices of blood, skin, and cherished cloth were made in the process and eldritch incantations were murmured.
Now the tree watches, unblinking. Sometime, just of the corner of an eye, the blue lights flicker and its tentacles appear to writhe. In the middle of the night the soft rustling of cellophane wings has been heard. The tree never sleeps.
Merry Cthulhumas friends. May the deep dark sleep of the Great Old Ones continue undisturbed.

Holy smokes, it’s a bright pink Christmas tree monster. Christmas Kaiju!
This is a “Pink” holiday Garamon Tree created by Atom Gray and Kiera Harrison (aka Miss Magpie) of Maneki Nekro studios. The sculpture stands “approximately 30” tall on a turntable base, comes pre-wired with bright pink lights, includes the ultra-ornaments as well as the gift-wrapped city buildings, and can be purchased HERE right now…”

Christmas is over, but we had to share this: Julie Coulter brought her delightfully nerdy Christmas tree to life using a pair of our Giant Googly Eyes and then enhanced the scene with a creepy Horse Head Mask. We hope Santa Claus filled her Bacon and Krampus stockings full of awesome goodies.
Christmas + Science = Aweome
These awesome little Christmas trees are made of colourful fungi grown in petri dishes by scientists at the J. Craig Venter Institute in Rockville, Maryland:
“In a relatively unknown place, on the 3rd floor of JCVI in Rockville, MD, is a small fungal room where art meets science (and of course where all our fungal research takes place). Fungus often gets such a bad reputation for being gross and somewhat ‘standard’. We fungal folks know better and I am hoping to educate others with the underlying beauty that fungi possess, in a funky way. I recognize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I felt this might convince some that fungus can be fun and not just something that grows in the back of your fridge or a nuisance that contaminates your plates. Please enjoy these funky fungal holiday art forms.”
