What is a Crabpot Christmas Tree?

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


What is that sturdy wire looking contraption? Happily, it’s a very cool looking Crabpot Christmas Tree!

This little beauty of a tree was created with PVC-coated crab trap wire. The wire is hard core sturdy, not a bit flimsy, which means it’s going to stay upright in my yard  (or in my house), like it’s supposed to, and not fall over.  It also means it’s going to be durable and sustain in the outside, sometimes harsh winter weather.


A Crabpot Christmas tree is amazingly simple to install. What does it include? Inside of the box you’ll find (6) metal upside down ‘U’-shaped placers to secure the tree, 2 packages of replaceable lights, and the tree itself. That’s it? That’s it. Sounds easy, yes? And it is!!! Simply open the tree, secure it in place, and plug it in. Voilá, you’ve got an amazing looking decoration to help ring in the holiday season.  It’s a super simple, super fast way to make your home look and feel instantly festive.


Crabpot Trees come in different sizes. This one stands 3 ft. tall and has 200 lights. That’s just right for me, though I do think the bigger ones are beautiful too. You can purchase a Crabpot Tree with multi-colored lights,



or with just white lights. I like both styles, and would be happy to call either kind my own. You can use it indoors or outside too, which I really appreciate.  I think we’ll be using ours outside this year, though my youngest really, really wants to have it inside. He likes the way it makes the room look when it’s dark outside and the tree is plugged in. So… we’ll see, I might bend and let him keep it in the house…though I suspect he’ll love it more when he sees it outside.


This handy and very pretty decoration stores flat, which is perfect for off-times when you’re not using it. It’s a cinch to store and really doesn’t take up a lot of room.  I love my tree, and do happily recommend it for holiday decorating this year.

Well at least that is one the cats won't chew or try and knock over, both of which they have done lol

We don't decorate anymore, but I like this. I had no clue it was called this either.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Oh how cool!! I had no idea that something like this existed.

I think these types of trees are awesome in the yard. Now I know what to call it. I never did before.

That's a nifty looking Christmas tree. I always buy a potted tree for outside but I live in town and don't have a yard so I can't replant them. I need to consider this instead of putting money into trees I put at the road to giveaway after the holidays.

I have seen this a few times and I really want it to decorate the outside. We just bought a house and I can't wait to decorate it!

I have never had a crabpot Christmas tree before, but I have seen them! I didn't know what they were called until now. They are very pretty.

This would look great out on the patio or porch! It looks so beautiful all lit up! I'd love to have this crabpot Christmas tree!

Annemarie LeBlanc said...

This will look lovely on a porch or patio! It looks so pretty all lit up like that! I'd get my own crabpot Christmas tree too!

Liz Mays said...

These look so nice. They seem so easy to put up and take down for storage too. I love how it folds up.

Whoa! I also had no idea that something like that existed either. It'd be so pretty outside in the dark! We live in an apartment so I guess I could hang it out on my balcony or something... oh one day we'll live in a house with a front yard lol :(

That's so cute... My husband and I wanted to purchase a christmas tree yesterday but decided to skip it. I have to check out this product

MyTeenGuide said...

What pretty Christmas tree. I love that this one is already lighted and you only have to put it up.

Crystal said...

I have seen these a lot this year! I love that they are an easy setup and clean up. It is always such a pain when you have to worry about putting a big thing up and with this it is pretty much all in one!

Thirty Something Super Mom said...

Wow this is so cool, what a space saver! I want to get one of these it seems so easy to put up and take down but very festive!

Ann B said...

These trees are so easy to put up and they look great. I would love to have a few for my yard.

Chubskulit Rose said...

I want one, please Santa, bring me one of these! This would look great on our front porch.

Lisa said...

I've never seen one of these. That is pretty awesome

Wood Arts Universe said...

I just heard of this now. It's easy to put together. It's quite amazing!

Katherine Phillips said...

This is a really cool tree. I would choose that over a real Christmas tree any day. I hate cleaning up Pine needles and I would love to not have that much to clean up after Christmas.

Audrey Kidwell said...

I really like the one with white lights!

Tiffany C said...

That tree is so pretty and simple! I love the look and style of it, and it seems easier to clean up!

Jennifer Pilgrim said...

I like this. I would maybe put it outside though. It kind of looks like a decoration for outdoors.

CourtneyLynne said...

Omg how cool is this?!?! Would look perfect in my entry way of my house!

That's really awesome! I wish I had a spot for a full tree but with the sectional I have and a large dog just no room. This looks really fabulous.
