Taller Christmas Tree Hack

Wishing you could get a taller Christmas tree, but it doesn’t fit into your budget right now? Sometimes a single foot of height difference between two artificial trees can cost hundreds of dollars, and that can be hard to justify, even when you can afford it!

So this year, I racked my brain for a way to make my tree look bigger without paying a lot of money. I thought about putting it on a stand or a table, but those were too awkward. I thought about building something custom, but that was cumbersome and expensive.

And then, I found sturdy plastic furniture risers for a measly $16!

The risers are rated to hold up to 300 pounds each, and their tops have a lip so the legs of my tree stand can’t slip out. Nestled inside a square tree collar I got from Kirkland’s on clearance, these risers raise my 9-foot tree up an additional 9 inches, making a major visual impact!

As a bonus, this hack also gives you more room underneath your tree, which comes in handy if you live in a smaller space and your tree is nestled into a corner or between other pieces of furniture.

Work smarter and save money!

You can find these affordable, sturdy, plastic furniture risers at most stores that sell furniture or housewares. I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond.
