Hi everyone! In this blog post, I’m going to show you how to put a Christmas tree in a planter using a bucket, fast-setting Quikrete, and a galvanized pipe. This is a fun and creative way to display your tree indoors or outdoors, and it looks amazing! Most importantly it will not topple over!

Here’s what you’ll need:

A fishbowl planter (mine: topping opening 12.5  inches in diameter, widest diameter 19″,  and 17.5 inches in height) 

– A bucket (mine is 2.5 gallons)

Quikrete (about 30-50 pounds) fast setting

A galvanized pipe (mine is 1 1/4 inch in diameter and 1foot long)

– A level

– A tape measure

– A marker

A Christmas tree (mine is 7.5  feet tall)

– Water

SHOP ALL SUPPLIES

Here’s what you’ll do:

1. Cut the pipe to the desired length. (My hardware store already sold 1 ft pieces). Choose the diameter of your pipe by measuring the diameter of your tree pole.

2. Fill the bucket with water and add the Quikrete, following the instructions on the package. Stir well until you have a thick and smooth mixture.

4. Insert the pipe into the Quikrete mixture; making sure it is straight and level. You can place a piece of tape over the bottom opening or just stick the pipe in and pull it out. Then shake out the excess Quikrete and replace the pipe in the hole opening in the bucket.

5. Check that the pipe is straight and level, using the level and adjusting as needed. Let the Quikrete set for at least 40 minutes to an hour, or according to the package directions.

7. Once the Quikrete is dry and hard, place the bucket into your planter.

8. Place your Christmas tree pole into the pipe, making sure it fits securely and doesn’t wobble. 

9. Decorate your tree as you like, and enjoy your beautiful Christmas Tree in a planter.

Best Artificial Christmas Trees 2022

Best Artificial Christmas Trees 2022

I know we are still waiting on Halloween, but Christmas trees are already going fast this year! Christmas trees are probably one of the biggest (pun intended) staples in holiday celebrations. There is something so exciting about having a big beautiful Christmas tree in your living room with twinkling lights and ornaments. Christmas trees go with all occasions, be it when some special friends or family are coming over for Christmas dinner or when your child wants to put on a school play and needs to practice acting like a tree.

Christmas Trees We’ve Had Over the Years

Our first Christmas tree was a small, fake one that we got from Dollar General. It was a little bit crooked, but we didn’t care because it was our first one.  So in 2016, when we moved into our forever home, we decided to buy a real tree for the first time. We went to our local nursery and picked out a 10-foot Noble Fir. It was beautiful, smelled amazing, and was perfect for our home.

BLUE AND GOLD CHRISTMAS

BLUE AND GOLD CHRISTMAS

Greetings! I hope this post finds you well. It’s officially the holiday season for my crew and me. All trees are up and decked. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on a new theme for our dining room, and I am all about sustainability, so I decided to use the living room theme in the dining room this year. The blue and gold are such a royal and elegant color theme for this formal setting. I used our 9′ Blue Spruce, and I think it accommodates our dining room well.

 

 

While this tree is in our dining room, it would make the perfect tree for any entryway or family room. This year I added smart plugs to all my trees to prolong the life of the trees, both the artificial ones and our real ones. I hope to share more of our home over the holidays on the blog. If not, be sure to follow me on Pinterest or Instagram for more daily home decor, recipes, and lifestyle inspirations. I don’t have anything on my list this year for Santa. I’m already blessed enough. Be Well.
