What Santa Left Behind: Roadkill Rescue Christmas Tree

“This is truly a roadkill rescue!” Candace from Vintage News Junkie says with excitement.  “I found not one, but two real
Christmas trees on the side of the interstate! Yes, the interstate!  The whole time we were loading up the trees, I couldn’t help but think, ‘Beckie is gonna love this!'”

Back at home with the trees, Candace was delighted at the opportunity to have not one but two trees for the price of none!  She’d seen a picture of a galvanized tub tree stand in Crate & Barrel, so using that for inspiration, she and her dad made their own version.  The larger of the two trees is the one that’s “planted” inside the galvanized tub.  Doesn’t that look great?
