Step 1: Tree Base

I started with a long piece of scrap board about 7' long. I needed stability so I screwed the board into a 5 gallon bucket and filled the bucket with sand.
What a great idea! Beats all those trees covered with tinsel garland which look tacky as far as I am concerned. Maybe incorporate wide ribbon with the burlap to serve as garland or cut into long pieces and placed randomly. Or try painting the part of the tree covered with burlap a dark green and maybe it won't show if you miss any spots. I do like itl Very elegant looking I think. Kermit needs a Santa hat.<br>
realyy fantastic
love it!
