Now that we’ve indulged in all things fabulous and fashionable when it comes to Christmas tree skirts, let’s address some burning questions you may have:

What can I use instead of a tree skirt?

For those with narrow spaces or a desire for something different, a tree collar is an excellent alternative. These collars come in various materials, such as metal, wicker, and wood. They fasten around the tree trunk, keeping the focus on your stylish tree, rather than showing off the tree stand.

How big should a tree skirt be for a 7-foot tree?

Balsam Hill recommends using a tree skirt that is 6 inches wider than the diameter of your tree. For a 7-foot tree with a 54-inch diameter, your skirt should be at least 60 inches wide. Remember, fashionistas, we want the skirt to extend beyond the branches for a balanced and elegant look.

Should a tree skirt be bigger than the tree?

Absolutely! A tree skirt should extend beyond the branches, creating a harmonious and polished appearance. However, be mindful of the space available around your tree, as you want to avoid any unnecessary tripping hazards.

Do people still use tree skirts?

Oh, yes! Tree skirts may be considered old-fashioned by some, but for us fashion lovers, they are essential to complete the overall look of our beautifully decked-out trees. Not only do they protect your floor from pesky needles and sap, but they also add an extra layer of sophistication and style.

So, dear readers, it’s time to embrace the fashionably festive spirit and dress your tree in a skirt that will make heads turn. Whether you prefer classic elegance, rustic charm, or a touch of Disney magic, there’s a tree skirt out there just waiting to transform your tree into a thing of beauty. Happy decorating, and may your holiday season be filled with fashion and joy!
