diy Small Christmas tree stand

A week ago my daughter asked me for a small Christmas tree for her room. I figured, why not and pulled out the very top portion of our artificial Christmas tree. The problem was finding a stand for the thing. I tried a metal waste paper basket that came with the house but that sucker was solid and I couldn’t put a hole in it for the tree at all.

In the end I took 2 empty coffee cans of differing sizes; one tall, one wide; that used to hold Lego blocks but the kids dumped out. Hey, if I need more of them, we just keep drinking coffee. I coated the wide one with Mod Podge and tinsel and left the tall one plain. I put the tall one in the wide one and the tree in the tall. Voilà, small Christmas tree beside bed.
