Burlap Tree Skirt

Burlap is such a beautiful yet frugal fabric, is available in a wide assortment of colors, and is a popular choice in a variety of differently styled Christmas tree skirts, like in this beautiful burlap tree skirt from Ballard Designs. If you like the soft weave of burlap but would prefer a more traditional look, linen is also a popular choice for tree skirts, but may cost a bit more than burlap.

Felt Tree Skirt

Felt tree skirts can be whimsical and fun, and are usually quite budget-friendly, like this felt tree skirt from Sierra Trading Post. For the most durable felt tree skirts, look for tree skirts made from wool felt verses polyester felt, which tends to pill and stretch. You will pay more for durability, but a decent felt tree skirt should last for many years. If you would like to make your own felt tree skirt, see the links below to tutorials for fun ideas, or click on "Compare Prices" to shop for budget-friendly ideas.

Quilted tree skirts have long been popular in country-style homes, but today's quilters are mixing in more contemporary patterns to produce some amazing designs, like this one from Garnet Hill. Ranging from a simple black and white pattern to a mix of holiday prints, quilted tree skirts are also available in a wide range of prices. If you are an accomplished sewer, you may easily make your own from scratch or from the wide variety of patterns available, but a simple quilted look can be crafted from cut fabric and glue.

Ruffled Tree Skirt

Ruffled tree skirts, like this beauty in the photograph from Garnet Hill, are quite the rage, probably because their style can range from fun and funky to chic and sophisticated. Ruffles can range from a simple bit of fluff around the tree skirt edge to a tree skirt comprised of layers of ruffles - and they can also range in price from $15 to more than $150. The $15 tree skirts may barely outlast one holiday season, so to have a quality tree skirt at a cheap price, you may want to make your own. Here are some DIY ideas, or follow the link to compare prices on ruffled tree skirts.
