I got this Christmas tree holder today at the local King Soopers for 90% off retail. So I have a ghetto fab carboy dryer and Christmas Tree stand for the low low price of 1.84. It hold both 5 and 6 gallon carboys.

I am totally going to decorate it next year. One word of caution. I had a 6 gal in there drying today and it slipped and fell out and onto the floor. A loud bang but no breakage and no cracks
