You probably have a fake Christmas tree like many other people do. Even though such trees aren’t as cool as real ones, they definitely are less problematic. In case you still want some naturalism you can make a natural stand for this tree. Stephen Loidolt and Shauna Alterio come up with a very simple idea for such stand that is really easy to make.
All you need is a stump, drill, and a paddle bit of the size of your tree’s center post. Using the drill bor a hole in the center of the stump, insert the tree there and you’re done!
