More Questions About Christmas Tree Skirts?
Here are answers to some commonly asked questions about Christmas tree skirts.
Do You Need a Christmas Tree Skirt?
Tree skirts aren’t necessary, but they can help tie the look of your Christmas tree together. Here are some of the benefits of using one for your tree:
Tree Skirts Hide Stands
Unless you have a decorative tree stand, most stands are utilitarian and have protruding screws. With a tree skirt, you can hide unsightly stands while providing a picture-perfect backdrop for gifts.
Tree Skirts Complement the Tree
Whether you have a classic or novelty theme, there’s always a tree skirt that matches your style. Choose one in a color that contrasts with your floor to create visual interest.
Tree Skirts Catch Falling Needles
If you have a real tree, you can do away with sweeping the area underneath by using a tree skirt to obscure small dry needles.
Tree Skirts Make Great Heirlooms
Many families pass them down from one generation to another, adding a sense of nostalgia to their décor while making celebrations more meaningful.
What Can I Use Instead of a Tree Skirt?
A CHRISTMAS TREE COLLAR is a popular alternative to a tree skirt. They can be made from wood, plant fibers, or metal. Household items such as blankets, mohair THROWS, or scarves are also good options.
How Do You Attach a Christmas Tree Skirt?
Once you’re done dressing up the tree, fan out the tree skirt around the base then wrap the fabric around the stand. Depending on the style, you can button up or tie together both ends of the skirt to keep it in place.
