6 Easy DIY Christmas Tree Skirts
Use a Basket
This decor option is a great way to use things around your house. Chances are you might have a basket or two laying around that you can repurpose.
First, place your real tree or artificial tree in a basket to make sure it will work well. Usually a basket is smaller than the base of the Christmas tree. Making your own base is an easy way to ensure everything fits.
Measure the width of the bottom of the basket. Use that measurement to cut 2 pieces of wood. These wood pieces will be utilized to make an X shape that will fit snug inside the basket.
Then, drill a hole down the middle of both the X wood pieces. The hole should be the same size as the tree post. Push the tree pole through the wood and stick it in the basket.
The basket holder is a great option if it goes with your personal style. Plus, it's hard to resist a project when cost is minimal or non-existent. Here is another low budget DIY to go along with your holiday projects.
Faux Fur Fabric
If classical style is more of your preference, try making it a little more unique with this faux fur white Christmas tree skirt. This would be a fun way to tie in a little more traditional style with modern taste. (shop here)
Try a Tree Collar
Tree Collars are a modern version of the traditional tree skirt. They are easy to find on Amazon or in some home decor stores. A few of favorites, including the one above are available here! (affiliate link)
One of the best things about tree collars is not having to constantly adjust the strips of fabric around the trunk of your tree. It's an added bonus not to have pets or your vacuum chewing on the outside edge of your tree skirt.
Whoever said that planter boxes or baskets are only for outdoors? Outdoor planters can make a beautiful Christmas tree skirt. And what a great idea to reuse what you already have! Minus all of that outside dirt, of course.
Solid and sturdy tree skirt options are ideal if you don't want to constantly restyle fabric or a traditional tree skirt.
If woodworking is more of your style, a classic wooden box is a great thing to consider. I made this one out of 10 inch wide pine. I opted to add color to this stand, but leaving the natural wood is also a stunning Christmas tree skirt.
Using a Blanket or Piece of Fabric
The size of your tree will dictate how much fabric or blanket you will need. A blanket is a good option if simplicity is your preference. Wrap the material around the base of your Christmas tree, making sure to tuck in ends.
A simple tree skirt is a perfect way to accentuate those gorgeous Christmas decorations.
