Trend Alert: Christmas Trees in Buckets

Off with your skirts!
There's a tree in the bucket...dear Liza!

Ditch the skirt, and disguise the bright green, plastic tree stand this year with a vintage bucket or woven basket. These alternative vessels create an all new appeal and will elevate your tree to top-trending status!

they're a great way to bring in a pop of color too!

add casters for industrial appeal

Lacking space for a larger tree? No problem!
Arrange a few snowy branches in a small bucket for a similar effect!

I love this idea of surrounding your tree with galvanized buckets filled with presents.
The buckets will also come in handy when it comes to toting gifts from house to house.

woven baskets are another great tree-skirt alternative

coordinate a grouping of smaller trees in ceramic pots and other vintage vessels

You can find unique buckets and bins at antique malls, flea markets and estate sales.
For newer models, check out your local hardware store!
