Christmas tree skirts are a beautiful way to dress up your tree. However, figuring out what size to get can be tricky, as tree skirt sizes come in many options. In this guide, we share tips and recommendations to help you choose the right skirt for your tree.
What Size Tree Skirt Do I Need?
How big your tree skirt should be depends on the height of your tree and how much coverage you prefer. Below is a breakdown of the sizes we offer and which tree heights they’re most suitable for.
Small Christmas Tree Skirts: 45 to 90 Centimetres
45-cm tree skirts pair well with miniature tabletop trees, while 60 to 90-cm skirts are ideal for trees under 180 cm. The smaller tree skirt size is elegant and adds festive cheer without taking up too much space.
Large Christmas Tree Skirts: 180 to 215 Centimetres
Bigger tree skirts are best suited for 245 to 365 cm Christmas trees. These giant trees are commonly found in rooms with vaulted ceilings, hotel lobbies, and business centres featuring a grand Christmas display.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to more questions about Christmas tree skirts.
Do You Need a Christmas Tree Skirt?
A tree skirt isn’t necessary, but it can help tie the look of your Christmas tree together. Here are some of the benefits of using one for your tree:
Unless you have a decorative tree stand, most stands are utilitarian and have protruding screws. With a tree skirt, you can hide unsightly stands while providing a picture-perfect backdrop for gifts.
Complement the Tree
Whether you have a classic or novelty theme, there’s always a tree skirt that matches your style. Choose one in a colour that contrasts with your floor to create visual interest.
Catch Falling Needles
If you have a real tree, you can do away with sweeping the area underneath by using a tree skirt to obscure small dry needles.
Many families pass them down from generation to generation, adding nostalgia to their décor while making celebrations more meaningful.
What Can I Use Instead of a Tree Skirt?
A Christmas tree collar is a popular alternative to a tree skirt. They can be made from wood, plant fibres, or metal. Household items such as blankets, mohair throws, or scarves are also good options.
How Do You Attach a Christmas Tree Skirt?
Once you’re done dressing up the tree, fan out the tree skirt around the base, then wrap the fabric around the stand. Depending on the style, you can button up or tie both ends of the skirt to keep it in place.
