If you have a live Christmas tree, you already know how important it is to keep it watered regularly. Nothing can spoil the Christmas mood as much as a dry tree that sheds its needles every day by the pound.
To keep from having to stoop down and pour water into a tree stand every other day, and risk spilling it all over the floor, try this.
Attach a small section of garden hose to a funnel. Make sure the diameter of the funnel spout will fit snugly into the hose. Feed the hose up the trunk line and place the funnel just inside the branches of the tree about three feet off the floor.
Now when it’s time for watering, simply pour the water into the funnel.
