Guy Build A Gorgeous Smoke-Breathing Godzilla Christmas Tree

Decorating the Christmas tree is a fun activity at Christmas time but turning it into something so unique, its just brilliant. Check out this magnificent Godzilla Christmas tree made in the shape of a fiery beast, the enormous prehistoric sea monster awakened and empowered by nuclear radiation that lays waste to everything in its path and it also breathes smoke. Awesome!

It’s remarkable what you can do with some wire, weed mat, 4 Christmas trees, decorations & a fog machine

“I got the idea from my 4-year-old nephew who loves dinosaurs,” explained Newland. “I thought I could do a dinosaur tree, but why stop there?  If it could also breathe smoke, it would make it amazing!”

The impressive Treezilla was built using a handful of regular household items: 10 meters of chicken wire, a weed mat, plastic teeth, paper claws, Christmas lights, and four different fir trees. For an added special effect, it was outfitted with a fog machine that is controlled remotely and can be filled with fog machine fluid.

The tree stands 1.8 meters in height, a bit higher than the average person. So, it may not be as large as the actual Godzilla monster, but at least it may seem like it for the kids.

After some time, the Treezilla was auctioned off with partial proceeds going to charity

Like most indoor Christmas trees, Treezilla is placed on a stand, which is necessary to hold it upwards due to its non-traditional tree shape. However, it is barely noticeable if covered with Christmas presents or other holiday decorations.

Newland decided to auction it off online. 34 bids later, he sold Treezilla on TradeMe for 415 New Zealand dollars (270 US dollars). He set a 250 dollar reserve, so everything above that number went towards the Canteen children’s charity, which supports young people with cancer.

“Also, remember all of the trees I’ve made in the past—I didn’t have children,” continues Newland. “Now that I do, I can go over the top, and I have a prop!”
