The secret is a ‘custom made’ tree collar made from a Bunnings Flexi Storage Clever Cube. They come flat packed and according to Stephanie, it only takes a couple of steps to create.

It comes in a flat pack, I just used the four sides plus cable tied the fifth piece (bottom of storage cube) to make it have five sides. I left the back of the open so I can turn the lights on and off.

GENIUS and just look how PRETTY IT IS!

Of course, if you have your Christmas tree in a wide-open space, you could join two boxes together to completely encase the stand. It’s also VERY handy for hiding gifts from prying eyes.

So there you have it, now you can have your giant tree stand and your tree collar too! The bonus of Stephanie’s Bunnings creation is the higher sides can also support the lower tree branches, preventing your decorations from falling off. Hooray!

What do you think? Is this tree collar hack going to be on your list of things to do before December?!
