We all decorate the Christmas tree and around the room, but under the tree can sometimes get neglected. Once you have opened all the presents it can look a bit bare, and depending on your choice of stand or pot for your tree it can even look quite ugly. This is where a Christmas Tree Skirt can come to the rescue by covering the base of the tree and the floor directly under it.
You could always buy one from a shop, but where is the fun in that! If you have already sewn your table decorations and seasonal pillow covers, then you will want your tree skirt to match.

Handy hint: You could sew this in an organised pattern of fabric colors, or go for a more random effect. Or you could even sew two and sew them back to back rather than having a plain backing fabric to your quilt.
