Have you ever bought a Christmas tree, brought it home and realized that you don’t have a stand for it… Either your first Christmas tree is still in your apartment or you haven’t taken everything from a previous year. So, how do you make a Christmas tree stand out of things you already have at home? We have a few suggestions for you:
#Christmas Tree Baskets – Christmas Tree Stand
You can set your Christmas tree in some kind of baskets made of wicker, thick string, or metal.
Use it if you have one at home. If you want the tree to stand in it and you do not have any soil to cover its trunk, you can fill the basket with any things, even with a thick blanket, which will stabilize it. If you want to hide the ground where you put the Christmas tree, arrange baubles on it. They will look great!
#Wicker Boarder Looks Very Impressive
#Braided Containers Can “Lift” the Christmas Tree, Making Room Under the Tree for Gifts
#Thin Wire Baskets Have a Similar Use if You Fill Them With Fabric, or Cotton Wool, or a Mat That Imitates Snow
#Metal Boxes as Christmas Tree Stand
Or maybe you have some container over some flowers? Or even a huge metal bowl? Or an old pot for pasteurizing pots? It will also be suitable as a container for the Christmas tree. A great idea is to light the Christmas tree from underneath. Hidden lights in the container are invisible and the effect – wow!
