With two dogs and a three-year-old, my tree skirt never stays straight, and my tree's water is always being splashed. Why must they play there?
Solution! Instead of a tree skirt, I put my tree and stand in one of these buckets. What a great look, plus it is totally practical (no splashing water on my hardwood floors).
Where to buy- I bought a galvanized bucket at IFA $25 (It is silver instead of brown) and found the perfect fitting tree stand at Smith's Market Place (a local Salt Lake City grocery store). Fortunately, I have two left over from last year if anyone would like to purchase them from me. I will even throw in the tree stand.
My tree is not up yet - but I wanted to post this before you all got yours up just in case you wanted to use this idea.
