Tree skirts are the final touch when decorating a Christmas tree. They certainly make a big difference in the overall look of the tree.
No one wants to see the tree stand. No matter how long you spend decorating a tree, seeing the tree stand diminishes it’s beauty. A tree skirt not only adds design, color and appeal, but it covers that ugly tree stand. It also hides the electrical cord used to light the tree.
There are times before Christmas, when I think what a shame it is that the Christmas gifts cover the gorgeous tree shirt. However, on Christmas morning, once all the gifts are opened, I am grateful to have it in place. The Christmas tree looks different without gifts, but thanks to the tree skirt, it is just as pretty to admire.
White Faux Fur Tree Skirt
The faux fur tree skirt featured here is available in off white or bright white. It is totally fitting for the winter month of December and even resembles the trim on Santa’s suit. Truly beautiful with or without the presents.
White Christmas Tree Skirts
Since we have two Christmas trees in our home, I have several different tree skirts. For the last few years, I have been decorating the tree we display in the front window with gold and white decorations. My mother gave me a coordinating white satin tree skirt with gold trim. It is truly a stunning effect to have gold and white from the top to the bottom of the tree.
Other years, I have chosen to decorate that tree with silver and white. Therefore, I also have a pretty matching tree skirt for that color selection. Nevertheless, white is the dominate color whether I accent with silver or gold.
White or ivory tend to compliment any home decor, therefore they make an excellent choice for a very elegant appearance. You won’t have to worry about them clashing with your furniture upholstery either, which can be the case with the traditional Christmas red and green.
Cleaning an Embellished Tree Shirt
The biggest mistake often made with tree skirts is washing them. Most tree skirts can not be washed. They should be dry cleaned. Because I can’t tolerate the dry cleaning chemicals, I started using Woolite Dry Cleaning sheets on clothing that requires dry cleaning. The Woolite dryer sheets are my personal favorite, but I have used Dryal too.
If your tree skirt has sequins, beads or other embellishments that could be harmed by the tumbling action of your dryer, then you will probably prefer Dryal. It comes with a bag that protects items.
