35 DIY Christmas Tree Skirt Ideas

Christmas tree decoration can be quite a personal ritual, as every family seems to have their own traditions, whether they’ve been created recently or passed on through generations.

Real trees remain popular, but some are opting for mess-free, long-lasting and ecologic fake ones. Ornaments, however, are never optional.

Christmas tree skirts are a whole other story. While it does provide a decorative finishing touch, serves as a base for ground decoration and of course helps catch fallen needles, not everyone feels like they need a skirt at the base of their Christmas tree.

If you are one of those people who think Christmas trees look incomplete without a skirt, then this gallery is absolutely perfect for you.
