15 Christmas Tree Skirts to Make

Are you getting ready for Christmas decorating, but would like to have something a bit more “personalized” for under the tree?

Are you hesitant to pay the bucks required to get a really fancy tree skirt? I don’t blame you. I love tree skirts — we’ve had the same handmade one at my parents’ house since I was little. It’s just about time for me to make one of my own, so I visited the interwebs for some great ideas and found a ton I would like to share.
