Can I use a blanket as a tree skirt?
If you are on a budget, a Christmas tree skirt can be pricey. Instead, you can use a blanket as your Christmas tree skirt and get more use from the blanket. Afterwards give your blanket a nice wash after being on the floor for a month or so.
How do you use a throw blanket as a tree skirt?
Start with a standard size throw blanket. Fold the blanket evenly into quarters. In the center, cut a circle just large enough to fit the tree trunk (if you’re using an artificial tree that won’t need to be watered or an inch and a half larger for a real tree). Cut across line shown to wrap around the base of the tree.
Can you use a tree skirt on a real tree?
If you’re using a basket or a bucket, put your tree, with the tree stand, in it at this point too before starting to decorate. If you’re using a tree skirt though, wait until you’ve finished decorating so you don’t get fallen needles on it.
Do tree collars work for real trees?

How do you pick the right size tree collar?

If your tree collar is about as wide as the width of your tree at the halfway height, that should result in an aesthetically pleasing “collar to tree” width ratio!
How do tree collars work?
A tree collar is like a choker for the bottom of your tree that covers the stand you screw your evergreen into. We’ve been seeing them everywhere already so early on in the season, and we love them because they are a chic, unfussy way to cover that clunky base.
