This barrel had a cork where the tree trunk is. I simply had to core out a little more to accomodate the tree. I screwed the tree trunk to the bottom of the barrel. This barrel originally just sat on the curved base. I had to secure it once I had the tree in there. Otherwise it would fall over just by looking at it!
A little grapevine garland and rusty star garland...
