How can we keep Christmas trees fresh longer? Here are some handy tips and hacks. The following tips are an easy way help you to keep your real Christmas tree alive for as long as possible.
These tips have been provided by owners of real Christmas trees not an artificial tree. Remember that the most important thing this holiday season is that you want to remember when caring for your real tree is never to let it dry out.
1. Hannah says, “Our tree lasted from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day because we mixed sprite and water together and checked the levels on a daily basis.”200
2. Constance says, “In order to keep my tree from drying out, I pick up a solution from Lowe’s that helps prevent it from doing so. It was recommended to me by a family member last year, and I told him I was definitely going to use it next year as well.”
3. Lena says, “There are times when I use water, but I make sure that it is kept away from windows so that it won’t be dried out by the sun. I would also like to point out that my Christmas decorations and tree toppers on the top of the tree don’t fade in color as well if I follow this tip!”
4. Beth, “If you cut the tree down, one of the tips I would give you is to make a few cuts into the bottom of the tree. This will allow water to pass through it as you cut the tree down. In order to keep my water fresh, I also add a pinch of sugar to it.”
5. Shauna says, There is a Christmas tree preserver that you can add to the water to help keep the tree fresh for a longer period of time by Miracle Grow.”
6. Christina says, “Don’t worry about getting too complicated. I’m a busy mum and my Christmas tree hack is to use water. I make sure the water is full every day and I also ensure to keep it away from any heat sources.”
7. John, “Water. Water. Water. It does the trick every time. Make sure you keep about a gallon of water in your tree stand. It’s also very important to check the water daily so your tree doesn’t dry out.”
If I was to give you a step-by-step tutorial of diy projects for the whole tree. I would start with making sure when you cut down the tree that as a reader suggested the base of the tree needs to have a few cuts in it. This is very beneficial to allow water to pass through.
I love using Christmas lights whether it is inside our outside but of course on my tree. Christmas tree lights in my living room are my favorite!
A tiktok user I saw had big bows all over her color scheme, and I was reminded of Barbie because she had those different types of ribbon. With the wide ribbon in her holiday decorations, it made a huge difference in how they looked.
It’s hard for me to remember whether she purchased the items from a craft store like Hobby Lobby, but I know the strands of lights was purchased from Amazon.
In my opinion, it was a very festive tree and it was impossible to tell if it was a real tree or an artificial Christmas tree. What a clever idea! I am sure it will be a hit with family and friends!
On social media you can find all sorts of ideas for a festive season when it comes to a Christmas tree look. I love decorating my own Christmas tree with my husband and kids.
It’s a great craft to do as a family during the most wonderful time of the year. It’s a precious time to fill the Christmas tree branches with white lights, our favorite ornaments, colors of ribbon, and in a matter of seconds we have a beautiful tree.
A personal touch you could also do is use wired ribbon and add visual appeal with pine cones or stick them on with a hot glue gun. It’s just a simple trick that takes up less lights, Christmas ribbon, and can be a bright idea on your own tree on a holiday budget. It doesn’t take much time.
The best part is making sure your tree skirt is big enough for your tree. If you have a thin tree trunk, your dream comes in different sizes, just remember when Christmas decorating the unique look you want for the bottom of your tree. The foot tree, lol.
