Christmas season isn’t that far, most of us will decorate our Christmas trees beforehand to create that unique atmosphere and mood. Everybody’s thinking about decorating and ornaments but don’t forget to hide the tree base itself, which is often ugly. A tree skirt might help but what if it doesn’t fit your style? Make a box or a crate! Here are some DIYs to try.
This tutorial is pretty easy but it requires very specific assembly. If you are interested in making these for outside, remember to use exterior wood. You could use these also inside for potted plants (just slip the pot inside) or other artificial topiaries. You could also add small casters to the legs making them easy to move around. I love the bold traditional Christmas red color, though if you don’t like it, go something different.
A tree box is great as it would make the tree sit up a little higher and it would better hide our unappealing stand. If you feel like rustic appearance, this is an ideal box for you: it looks weathered, it’s placed on casters and is decorated with a cute snowflake. For more practical reasons it could be really helpful to have the tree on wheels when you are decorating so you can roll it out away from the wall to easily decorate all sides. Read the tutorial and make the piece!
If you have babies who are fond of running around the tree and grabbing it, a tree skirt isn’t the best idea for you. Think of having a tree box that would make your tree much more stable, this tutorial will help you to make one. You can hide your Christmas tree base with a gift – check it out! The idea is simple: it’s a box decorated with gift wrapping paper, so cool!
This is a cool Christmas tree crate for rustic spaces and it features several sides and a hole, which means that you may place the tree inside or put it on top to make it higher (which is great for small trees). The crate looks totally rustic, it’s a cool piece built of wood and stained with a dark stain. Enjoy the stylish rustic look!
This super stylish modern box is what you need for Christmas! This box is done in black and features an amazing red deer silhouette – so cool and so bold! You may go for any color combos that fit your Christmas tree decor, here it’s black and red. Building it won’t be difficult, just decorating it can take you some time. If you have a cricut machine or a vinyl sticker, it’s easier. That cute deer adds such a cozy feel to the box, wow!
Take blocks of wood and turning them into a useful toy block tree stand for the holidays! The idea is about building a plywood or wooden box and then paint it in toy style – framing and putting letters on each side. It looks super cute and super toy-like, your kids will really love this idea!
