A Christmas tree skirt easily covers the base of your tree and adds the "pretty factor." It finishes the look of the Christmas tree decor and makes a welcoming place for presents under the tree. Available in many sizes of Christmas tree skirts and motifs. A tree skirt may have been originally been used to catch wax drippings from real candles once used before Christmas lights were available. Now it can also be a convenient way to protect the floor from catching pine needles in carpet. It can also hide a Christmas tree removal bag positioned around the base of the tree for those who prefer a real tree to an artificial Christmas tree.
