With all my though process on what to put our Christmas tree in – galvanized wash tub, wooden crate, or half of a whiskey barrel – the brilliant folks at Crate&Barrel have a solution all their own.
(Half of a whiskey barrel won, btw.)
It’s a galvanized tree collar……
It looks like an inverted washtub, but I think I can live with that.
Pretty clever folks over at the Crate & Barrel,
Pretty clever indeed.
James, I love this idea and reusing other containers such as a whiskey barrel. Next year I will make a copper version of this from a bucket.
That sounds so cool….I’ll bet copper will look amazing…
Of course Crate and Barrel did. Love it. (p.s. I just featured your barrel from last year’s tree)
Looks great!!! Wish I had a big crate laying around the house…..maybe next year…:)
Lovely idea. But check out Terrain. They carry a basket…..http://www.shopterrain.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=search.results&searchString=basket
Ok, the basket is a great idea too
I like the idea but $59.95!!!!!!!????
Pretty sure a galvanized wash tub from the hardware store is about 20$…same look
