This year we’re starting a week later in getting our Christmas decorating on the go, but that was a deliberate decision. Last year our fresh tree and cedar boughs were way too dry by the time we took everything down. I’m not ready to take you on a photo tour just yet, but here’s a look back a last year’s, and a sneak peek of this year’s tree below…
Imagine waking up to our just decorated tree leaning way to the right? Especially when we fiddled with it’s corkscrew trunk to make sure it was not only straight in the stand, but also secure!
So where does the DIYing come in?
Well, for some hoarding reason I saved the disc scrap we cut off last year’s tree trunk. I had aspirations for a rainy day project, but even though the rainy days came and went, the project never happened.
The little disc however, has now become the wedge we needed to keep this year’s tree secure and upright. Even though I grew up in a logging family, I draw the line at guy-lines on the Christmas Tree – NOT.GOING.TO.HAPPEN!!
Moral of the story – saving your good intentions might come in handy down the road! Beware, this could become a hoarding habit!
Do you have any tips for keeping your tree upright and straight through the Holidays? What kind of tree stand do you use?
Thanks for stopping by!
