The size of the Christmas tree skirt is probably one of the most important factors to consider, since a skirt that is too small or too big will look out of proportion with your Christmas tree.
Tree skirts that are too wide can also become a tripping hazard for people moving around the tree. A good rule of thumb is to choose a Christmas tree skirt that is no wider than the widest branches on the bottom of the tree.
It is also a good idea to make sure that your skirt will fully cover the tree stand underneath.
You could opt for a Victorian design made of velvet and lace, or choose a simple satin in a metallic hue for a bit of glitz.
Country trees are made for a quilted Christmas tree skirt, or perhaps one that is crocheted in festive yarn.
In some cases, the prettiest Christmas tree skirt may be a simple wrap of artificial snow for a natural look, or a festive throw for a more homey touch.
For smaller trees, decorative napkins can be draped around the base of the tree for a sophisticated look.
Making your Own
If you love crafting, making your own Christmas tree skirt will be the perfect way to get into the spirit of the season.
Whether you enjoy quilting, crocheting or stitchery, you can find many lovely patterns and styles on the Internet or in craft books.
Handmade skirts can also make a lovely gift for someone special on your list. Consider the couple who is just beginning their life together and may not have much in terms of holiday decorating just yet.
These pieces often become family heirlooms that are treasured and used by generations to come.
Christmas tree skirts make a lovely finishing touch to your holiday décor. With so many styles and colors available, you are sure to find a Christmas tree skirt that will complement the rest of your seasonal home perfectly.
