5. Make Your Own Coasters and Trivets

If you hate to see water circles, heat damage and stains on your furniture, one of the most useful things you can do with your Christmas tree after the holidays is to make your own coasters and trivets out of it. Cut some thin slabs off the tree's trunk, sand them until they become smooth, and then apply a thin polyurethane coat. The only thing left is to convince your SO or roommate to use the god damn coasters this time!
