Forget to make a centerpiece for your holiday table?
Toss that pesky Christmas tree out the front door, grab the tree stand and use it for something really important.
Like a Christmas tree stand candle holder!
All that is required is a tree stand and a candle.
That's it. The faux greenery and vintage ornaments are optional.
OK, fessing up here. I was so in love with this tree stand when I found it at an estate sale in March and then I totally forgot about it when I was decorating for Christmas! It needed to go somewhere. Anywhere. So dining room table it is!
That is wonderful. LOVE it. Merry Christmas.
Oh my goodness, this is brilliant Pam!!! I have an awesome stand a neighbor found for me so I will be borrowing this Idea!!! So cute and what a great repurpose!
You are so creative Pam! This is amazing 😉

Aren't you clever, Pam! Wishing you a blessed and very Merry Christmas!
That's a neat use for an old stand. I'm afraid my old ones all rusted out. Pretty repurpose! Merry Christmas!
Great idea, that I may just be Grinch like and steal!
Hey Pam, that is a very neat, retro stand, no wonder you had to have it displayed. It is very cool and looks perfect on your table.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season!
I have been trying to think of a use for an old cast iron stand that I picked up at a yard sale last year. This is perfect! And just in time too, the family is arriving tomorrow. Thanks so much, I really enjoy your blog.
Being a child of the 50's I have fond memories of scooting under the Christmas tree to put water in our tree stand...passed on to my girls born in the 60's & 70's. Recent years have not needed "ye olde stand" but I know what I'm going to do with it this year!!!! And because we must be kindred spirits I will likely incorporate it amongst my red plaid thermos collection. Happy Decorating!!!
I remember those used to be sort of "tippy". Or maybe it was because of our cat trying to climb it 🙂 Enjoy using yours in a new way this year. BTW, when I was on Pinterest today I saw someone had taken three of the old tree stands of different sizes and stacked them to make a small Christmas tree and then hung ornaments on it.
