Day 899: Christmas trees in containers
I've had a small obsession with table-top Christmas trees for about a year now. Specifically, with trees sitting in pretty urns. I fully planned to apply these instructions to our own 5-6 foot tree (with a bigger urn, of course) but Wes was skeptical (that's the engineer in him, I guess).
The problem with my plan was the center of gravity. The darling urn I picked out was fiberglass, and Wes was certain it would tumble over. Plan B was to place the tree stand in a basket, but I couldn't quite find what I was looking for.
Plan C is to make it my mission in 2010 to find a suitable urn for our tree. And if that doesn't work, I think a galvanized bucket will do just fine. What is your tree in?
