Yup! That's what we did here at Eventually Cottage this year!
I love the look of beautiful Christmas trees with beautiful tree skirts. I've tried those beautiful tree skirts...many times. With 4 dogs, and 2 cats it.just.never.worked.out! All those beautiful tree skirts ever did was frustrate me!
So when I was searching Pinterest (shocking, I know) I found this pic and a lightbulb went off in my little head!
I dragged the hubs to Michaels with me. We picked up two unfinished wood crates like these...
The tree stand obviously didn't fit in just one so we took a side off of each crate. The hubs then stained the crates.
We picked up Betsy (the tree), and slid the crates under her stand.
I didn't like the way you could see the handles, so I made this sign to attach to the front. It covers them up nicely!
So whatcha think?
I'm also offering the sign for sale in case you want one like mine! It's 4"x18", painted a pretty off white, sanded, and stained for a rustic look. It'll be $18 plus $6 shipping. Email me at email@example.com if you want one!
