Say Goodbye To Your Christmas Tree Stand With This Genius Hack
A Christmas tree needs the right support to keep it in place. Luckily, there's a TikTok hack for a DIY Christmas tree collar and base that is both sturdy and stylish.
Per the TikTok by @stefyplants, you'll need a woven basket with a flat bottom, a plant holder that fits into it, a polystyrene or styrofoam block, and small, decorative stones.
The TikToker uses a 15x15x15 foam block, but the size you use depends on the size of your plant holder and basket. The basket can be made of any material you prefer.
Put the small plant holder inside the big basket and pour some small stones into the bottom. Make a hole in the foam block and fix the tree in it, ensuring it's firmly inserted.
Pour in more stones until they cover the block so it looks like the tree is planted in the container. Now you have a sturdy and attractive Christmas tree holder.
It's important to keep in mind that this DIY Christmas tree base is better suited for artificial trees since it doesn't have a water reservoir.
