SEATTLE -- Believe it or not, this is not photoshopped. But, it s not quite as real as it looks, either.

A Seattle man used some creativity and construction skill to make it look like the top of his Christmas tree broke through the roof of his house.

It s actually the tree cut into two parts, but he put the top part on the roof with some extra roofing material around it to create the illusion.

I built the prop using a quarter sheet of plywood, sheathing and spare roofing tile, said Kruger. I then bought a 14-foot tree and cut the top 6 feet off and mounted it to the prop. The first attempt was blown off the roof, so I bolted it down with the help of my buddy, Scott Douglas.

Well played, gentlemen.
