A few years back the puddle under the tree said it was time for a new stand. The faithful plastic one (with a cool built-in adjustable tilt feature) had cracked. A scramble to find a new stand a few days before Christmas proved fruitless...with the popularity of artificial trees; a live tree stand was no where to be found.
Improvisation once again found itself hot on the heels of necessity.
With some spare parts from Santa's workshop... A floating Christmas tree is now part of our family tradition.
Why would we ever go back to a conventional stand, with all the advantages the Anti-Gravity Tree Stand offers?
- Its off the floor so its easier to clean-up the needles
- The tree spins, so you can decorate it standing in one spot.
- It won't tip over (a plus around small childen and pets)
- And best of all, It always points straight-up North!
In keeping with the spirit of the holidays and all...the instructions are roughly influenced (and I do mean roughly) by the poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas"
