"Christmas Trees" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Dog repellent. Boughs positioned vertically around tree trunks may help discourage neighborhood dogs.

 

 

2. Bean pole. Drive a 6-foot metal fence post into the ground. Cut the branches off a Christmas tree, leaving short stubs, and attach it to the fence post with string or twist ties. (Collect extra trees from your friends and neighbors or get unsold ones from local markets the day after Christmas.)

3. Fishing habitat. If you drop a Christmas tree into your favorite fishing hole, the fish will very likely gather around it, and you’ll know just where to catch them.
 

4. Bird shelter. Make a winter shelter for neighborhood birds by piling several trees in the backyard. They’ll be especially grateful if the trees were decorated with popcorn or cranberry garlands.

 

 

5. Holiday trimming. Insert the branches trimmed from a Christmas tree into a chicken-wire wreath or wire them together into evergreen swags to decorate mantles or railings.
 

6. Bathroom freshener. Tie a bow on a freshly cut branch and hang in the bathroom for an evergreen scent. Mist frequently.
 

7. Animal deterrent. Cut off the branches and mulch flower beds and shrubs with them; they’ll also serve to ward off animals.
 

8. Fire starter. Use dried-out sprigs to ignite kindling in a fireplace. Don’t overdo it—they burn furiously.
