If you can, drill holes close to the bottom of the trunk so that water can be absorbed again. If you didn't recut the trunk of the tree when you brought it home, the sap probably has hardened and sealed the bottom so no water can wick up. By drilling holes, water can start to wick in.

They also make a flame retardant spray that you can use on a dry tree but I don't know if you can use it after you have decorated it or not.

Other than adding more water I don't know of any! Be very careful though if your tree is dry when turning on your Christmas lights. You could have a short somewhere in the wiring and could possibly start a fire. A dry tree can go up in flames very quickly and your house could go up in flames as well. If you can't revive the tree I would suggest getting another because yours is unsafe.
