A tree stand is a must have for any Christmas tree – it should be kind of sturdy and you can also cover an ugly tree base, which sometimes happens. I’ve prepared a whole bunch of DIY ideas to make them a reality and you’ll find lots of tutorials here, from box-like covers to mobile stands.
Rustic stands and covers
If you want a natural or rustic Christmas tree stand, here is a cool idea! This is a tree stand made from a stump, a real one! Just take a stump, tree, drill and drill a suitable hole in the stump to introduce your tree. Very easy and very easy, DIY it quickly!
Make this country style Christmas tree stand complete with a plastic container for pouring with a metal bucket and clothesline hook. Perfect for smaller rooms, a cozy corner or a veranda.

This piece is really rustic because what can be more rustic than a galvanized bucket? This tree cover is inspired by a galvanized tree collar from Crate and Barrel and is made from a standard galvanized steel tub, which makes the price much lower.

Tree skirts look very buttoned and neat, but if you have a tall tree it needs a solid base to hold it upright.
