Pic only. My husband and I built a Christmas tree stand "crate" to use instead of a tree skirt/dog hair magnet. There's still enough clearance for our tree to rotate in the rotating tree stand. It measures 20"x20"x10"h. Spray painted with Valspar Brilliant Red FLAT from Lowes. I cut vinyl with my Cricut and used them as stencils and filled them in with white craft paint.

(OMG) This is a Putz Village display from the 2002 Golden Glow of Christmas Past convention. Using a regular Christmas tree, every third row was removed and the remaining two rows were adjusted to create a full surface for the houses. Add lighting, cotton batting, icicles and just about anything else to create a wonderful Christmas Village. Set the tree in a rotating tree stand for full visual impact.

A year- long search for the perfect thing to hide the tree stand. A small galvanized washtub from the antique mall. I used a 4" hole saw to cut the hole in the bottom of the tub to accommodate my rotating tree stand, and used a small piece of clear surgical tubing to go around the hole to cover the sharp edges. Absolute perfection!
