Tree Watering Made Easy

I don't know what's with our Christmas tree this year, but it's been drinking water like crazy. (Maybe because it's a pine tree and usually we get a fir?) Anyway, we've been watering it three times a day. That process is always a hassle, but having to go through it so often has made me come up with a way to make it a little easier. Instead of using a pitcher or measuring cup, like we had been doing, we've started using a squirt top water bottle to water the tree.

This has made it so much easier. We can hold the bottle upside down without any leaks. We're able to get the spout closer to the tree so we have fewer spills. Our aim doesn't have to be as perfect. Using a water bottle to water our Christmas tree definitely works for me.


  1. great tip! I have a narrow neck carafe that I use for the tree. Hubs would prolly prefer your method.

  2. My tree was so try this year! It's taking water like crazy! Thanks for the tip! :)

  4. That's a great idea. Thanks for sharing it. I would love for you to join me for Crock Pot Wednesday whenever you can. It's a great way to share and get new ideas for the slow cooker. Come post a favorite of yours.

  5. of course! what a great idea. Why didn't I think of that!

    Congrats on your newly wed status... your header photo is breath-taking. Put a big smile on my face!!

    And I liked the "non-cult" follower thing... hee hee!

  6. great idea, I was just cursing our tree this morning, so I'll give it a try!
