Wink Holiday Stripping Baskets

Have you found that your line stripping baskets make great Christmas tree stands?

If you do what I do, center tree in the middle of the basket. Apply 6 -12 boxes of Devon 5 minute epoxy. Don't worry about it yellowing. Will only be used about three weeks. Take the belt buckles and use them as an aid to centering the base of the tree. Remember to cut several inches off the stem first. Epoxy can be handled after fifteen minutes. Baskets with perforated holes won't work unless you silicone and seal them first. Place the tree in the appropriate area. Fasten the belt buckles around something sturdy to protect your children from top overs. If your ecology minded, the CCA sticker is surely a conversation piece at any gathering.

After the holidays, the trunk of the tree with epoxy can be used as a flat anchor. Jeff take note. Drill the appropriate size hole to fit your rope needs.

Any other holiday ideas? Best of holidays. :hehe:

Capt. Ray I think you need to use more ventilation when you are using all this glue!
