I’ve never given much thought to Christmas tree skirts until recently when I had to find a solution for my own petite tannenbaum. Instead of purchasing a mini tree skirt for my faux tree, I wrapped the plastic stand with a pretty scarf, but I realized that if I had a full-size, real needle-dropping tree, I would definitely need to find a better solution. That being said, just like buying actual apparel, there’s a big difference in beauty and quality depending on how much you’re willing to spend on your tree’s holiday outfit.
HGTV.ca site manager Mia admitted to buying hers from West Elm for way too much money but gushed "I love it so much!" And apparently there’s a market for upscale skirts, just look at Pottery Barn’s monogrammed Jewel Quilted Velvet Tree Skirt (on sale for $99 so put in your order for next year now!).
I have to admit that while a designer skirt is tempting, I’d probably go the knock-off route and buy a lower-end but pretty version like the $20 Basket Weave Tree Skirt from Canadian Tire.
What about you? What’s your tree skirt: discount or designer?
