Sometimes you don’t see that the Christmas tree you’ve selected has a big bare spot until you get it home and into the stand. If your tree stands next to a wall or corner, that’s an easy fix—just turn it around. But if that’s not the case, cut a few branches from the bottom of the tree before putting it into the stand. Then, zip tie those branches onto the interior of the branches just surrounding the gap. Trim and shape them with some pruners to help those “new branches” blend in. Once you’ve got the lights and ornaments on, no one will ever notice.
