How Make a Bottom of a Artifical Xmas Tree

So this year I opened the box to my artificial xmas tree, and the bottom and connecting pieces where missing. I was quite upset, and the tought of going out and buying a new tree crossed my mind. But i would rather spend the $50 that it would take to buy a new tree on xmas presents. So i created a new bottom out of things in my recycle bin. 

What you will need.
1) a sturdy box that is about 1/2 the size of the bottom of the tree or more.
2) pipe or paper towel roll
3) duct tape
4)fabric or warping paper
