This hero turned his Christmas tree into a pen

Updated: 

If you still haven't got round to taking your Christmas tree down yet and can't decide what to do with it, we may have an idea for you.

YouTuber Graz took his old tree and turned all that festive wood into something useful - a pen.

Whittling your own pen out of a tree? Someone award that man 100 hipster points.

Obviously you'll need some half-decent carpentry skills to pull this off, but think of the satisfaction you'll feel every time you write something knowing that you made your pen with your own enterprising hands.

Plus, bonus festive vibes all year long.

That beats leaving your tree by the side of the road, doesn't it?
