Today I am sharing how to put your Christmas Tree in a basket.
Well, you are going to be surprised. There is no science behind it lol. It’s super easy to stand your Christmas tree in a basket, but because I get lots of questions about it, I thought I would share a post on how I did it. This is my second year using a basket as a Christmas tree skirt and I love it. The image above is from last year’s Christmas decor and believe it or not; I pulled the same decor out this season as well because I LOVE it so much. This neutral Christmas decor even made it to Better Homes and Gardens December issue!!(pretty please)
The basket idea blends into my decor as I have baskets all over in my house so adding one more was a great move. I think I started seeing Christmas trees in baskets a few years ago and I immediately was intrigued by the idea.
This is my current decor and I am so happy with my tree in the basket again. And this time we did not go with our usual Fraser Fir tree, but we bought a White Pine tree. Eeeh…I think I will go back to Fraser Fir next year!
So let me show you what you need to stand your Christmas tree in a basket.
Some people asked how I water my tree..? Well, you need to put your tree on a tree stand first. There is no other way around it! Your tree won’t stand alone in the basket. Period!
My large ( 19.5″) basket is from World Market. After the holidays I just put some of my plants in it, and they looked great!
My inexpensive tree stand is from The Home Depot.
That is it, my friends.
Oh and definitely don’t decorate your tree first. It was a last minute idea to share a post on it, so my tree was already decorated but before you decorate your tree, have it stand in the tree stand and place the tree with the stand into the basket.
Can you add the basket idea after the fact that your tree is decorated? Sure! But be careful not to ruin your ornaments by lifting the tree up.
Have a fabulous day, friends!
