When using an artificial Christmas tree many larger durable tree stands are too large. Buy some PVC pipe and cut it in small and equal pieces to place inside the tree stand to make a circle around the smaller tree base. If you have pets, you can drill holes in the PVC pipe and place the screws in the tree stand through the PVC pipe for extra durability to hold the tree in place (so even when animals jump on the tree or rub against it, it is very study and the tree does not fall over).

Why not use the stand that comes with the tree? I have never yet had one tip over, and I have a really small living room and four overly tall, clumsy because of their height rambunctious grand kids.
Do you mean stand them up by/around the "stem" of the tree? I have several artificial trees as I like to decorate! One broke a piece off of the base, I would like to put it in a regular stand that I have. Thanks! You may have helped me to keep the tree out of a landfill!
