In this post: Christmas tree collars add a neat and tidy twist of decor to the base of your tree. Plus they’re readily available and easy to set up!
Maybe you noticed in this year’s home tour, maybe you didn’t. But we swapped out our beloved fur-trimmed Christmas tree skirt for a white metal Christmas tree collar this year. I’ll tell you why below, and where to find 10 fabulous Christmas tree collars you just might want to try in your own decor this year!
Why We Used a Tree Collar Instead of a Skirt This Year
Christmas tree collars have been around in blogland for a few years. Mostly they’ve been order online at specific places (i.e. not widely available) or DIY versions. But, I’ve noticed this year, they’re a little more readily available!
In years past, I was perfectly content to use our velvety fur-trimmed Christmas tree skirt. It fit most of our decor schemes, it was pretty, and we already had it on hand.
This year, I decided to try a tree collar instead mainly because of how neat and tidy they look.
I mean, you know how it is with Christmas tree skirts. They get shifted and bunched up and moved around. Especially if you have kids or pets, like we do (although our kids are teenagers, the dog still thinks the tree skirt is for him to root around in and make a bed for himself despite the plethora of other options he has in the living room). Leaving a messy, bunched up mess that needs re-adjusting several times during the Holiday season.
Plus, I’ve always find that tree skirts leave the base of a faux tree looking a little naked and that the presents tend to get shoved way underneath the tree at odd angles.
I just loved the idea of the tree collar keeping things:
- neat and tidy
So, this year we thought we’d try it out.
And so far, I’m LOVING it!
