Christmas trees help make your home so festive during the holidays, but no one wants to look at an ugly tree stand. Placing tree skirts under the Christmas tree started many decades ago when Germans placed real candles on their trees. They would put a cloth or mat under them to catch the drippings from the candle and the pine needles, and the tradition of tree skirts was born.
Once artificial trees came about, along with the invention of the tree lights, the tradition of tree skirts continued, as people wanted to have something to cover up the tree stands, which often distracted from the beauty of the other decorations. The tradition of using a Christmas skirt, or, alternatively, a Christmas tree collar, continues today.
Christmas Tree Skirts
Over the years, people have found unusual and festive ways to make the tree skirts more and more beautiful by adding all kinds of decorations. Christmas skirts may be decorated with berries, poinsettias, and holly for a traditional look, while others may have angels or cherubim as reminders of the meaning of the season. The Christmas tree skirts you'll find at BJ's may include needlework or other artistic touches. In addition to helping you dress up your tree, we can help you plan your holiday parties.
Christmas Tree Collars
Someone came up with the idea of making a Christmas tree collar by recycling other materials, such as cutting the bottom out of a basket and using it to hide the tree stand under the tree. Another type of Christmas tree collar could be poster or plastic rolled into a circle and glued together to hide the tree stand and used in place of a Christmas skirt.
