Want to know how you can make a sad, little 4-foot tree look like this beautiful, 6-foot Christmas tree?

I turned this $19 Christmas tree into a tree that looks a lot fuller and taller. Click here! for the tutorial on Dagmar's Home!

It was so much easier to get a shorter tree home than lugging a 6-foot tree home.

This is what the tree looked like all fixed up! The full tutorial is on Dagmar's Home.

The before.

Add these to the bottom. Find out in the post where I got these for free.

I added an extra branch to fill in the top of the tree and secured it with a bread bag tie.

After adding extra branches, the tree looks so much better!

The finished product! Make sure to mist the extra branches with water every day so they don't get dry.

    U purchased a live 4 foot tree for $19.00?

    I live in NYC and tiny little live 2 feet trees are $100 or more. Can I put live tree branches òn my fake tree? Hope that question makes sense!

    My dad used to ask the salesman at the lot for some extra branched if we could not find the perfect tree. We would buy the best we could find. My dad would drill holes in the truck and whittle down the extra branches and fit the into the truck. Your idea is great for people who don't have power tools.
