so, did you take the plastic bucket out of the inside? or does that stay in?
also, I would think (after working on a Christmas tree farm for years going through lots of things people do to their trees and then wonder why they dried out so soon)
that that drilling into the truck would cause it to dry out faster as it would cause
a wound in the trunk. and one other question. why would you need a concrete tree stand? no criticism… just wondering 🙂
Chelsea Lipford Wolf says
The plastic basket stays inside to hold the water for the tree. I don’t know about it making it dry out faster, but I keep it well-watered and haven’t had any issues with it in the past. I don’t need a concrete tree stand per se, but I wanted something different this year!😊 ~Chelsea

Interesting idea and looks so simple. Isn’t it really heavy though? I can say my kitties would not be knocking over the tree so easily. 😊
I love your show and these projects. I rarely get to do them but you never know when you find that perfect time and project.
Merry Christmas, Chelsea!
Yes it is heavy! I’m planning to drag it to the front porch and use it as a planter when the Christmas season is over! ~Chelsea

On a tv show a while ago you and your dad helped a couple up date their bathroom and at the end you shared a shower cleaner that used once a week or so. Will you tell me the name of the product again please. Thanks so much. Have a safe Holiday
Hi Ruth! It’s called Wet & Forget Shower. Here’s a link to find where you can buy it: https://www.wetandforget.com/wet-and-forget-shower.html

Hey Chelsea, Hope all the family have a wonderful holiday. Just another way to use your discarded Christmas tree is to bungee it to a fence post, small tree or anything that will hold it upright. When the winter weather gets bad, the birds will harbor in it to stay out of the weather. I also put pinecones with peanut butter and seeds, overripe apple and orange slices, strung popcorn, etc. for them to eat. When spring comes, you can recycle for firewood or mulch. Stay Safe, Grateful and Jolly.
Love this idea, Mary! Reuse it before you recycle it! Thanks for sharing! ~Chelsea
