Vintage bucket Christmas tree stand

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!  I wanted to quickly share with you an idea I had to cover the base of my Christmas tree.

I really wanted my Christmas tree stand to fit inside the vintage bucket, and I thought that it would, but when it came down to it, my base was just too big (or the bucket was too small)!  

So I did the next best thing any mother of a three-year-old would do, I precariously propped my entire Christmas tree on top of the inverted vintage metal bucket. The problem is, it did nothing to hide the ugly stand. I had just bought some pretty plaid fabric for a different project I was working on, and had some left over, so I simply wrapped it around the base of the Christmas tree. 

Problem solved. I love the way it gives it a kind of rustic meets farmhouse look.  Merry Christmas!
