easy diy christmas tree stands
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.

If you need a country style tree stand but don't want to work traditionally with wood or tree stumps, give tires a try. How do you make a tire rustic? Add jute!

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. Your galvanized tub Christmas tree collar has some stretch. But just to make your life easier, place it over your Christmas tree base before putting the tree in place. This is important.
Tree skirts look very buttoned and neat, but if you have a tall tree it needs a solid base to hold it upright.

In just a few steps, you have a sturdy, low-key base that you can surround with pretty packages! Read the tutorial to do it.
Here's another galvanized metal idea for a Christmas tree stand! Two small galvanized buckets became stands for the mini-trees.

However, if you don't like it, just skip this step.
This tutorial will show you how to make your artificial Christmas tree look absolutely real! This stand contains a pot with soil and a pot with jute rope glued to it.

Moving or rotating a Christmas tree to show its best angle or simply repositioning it is not an easy task.
