Welcome to the first part of a 3 part series of setting up my Dollar Tree Christmas Tree 2020! In this first part, I show the unboxing of the Greenbrier International brand Christmas Tree, which I purchased at my local Dollar Tree. In the second part, I flock the tree and the third part is where I decorate the tree.
So sit back, grab a hot cup of Christmas cocoa or coffee or tea and enjoy this little blog post series!
I put my tree up in December this year, but I purchased it sometime around Halloween. Dollar Tree, like a lot of retail stores during the pandemic, put up Christmas supplies early.
The Christmas Tree is about 18 inches tall and about 10 inches wide at the widest part of the tree towards the bottom.
The brand is Greenbrier International. This is the box:
The box had instructions printed on the back. The box contents were the tree and branches already assembled and the 3 plastic base pieces that you have to attach for the tree to stand upright. This is the tree taken out of the box.:
I took a picture of the simple base assembly. The plastic pieces have a groove that slid into the base.
This is the tree standing upright after the base was assembled:
After that, it was just a matter of gently pulling down the tree branches and adjusting them to complete the look.
This is what the tree looks like after the tree branches have been pulled down:
The branches are made with wire and plastic. The texture is similar to a cheer pom.
I used a glittered faux snow drape as the Christmas Tree Skirt, to cover the base and create the look of winter.
