Christmas tree collars and baskets an alternative for Christmas tree skirts.
I have always loved the look of a basket or a tree collar under a Christmas tree but always had a hard time finding one. Well I finally found one this year and actually learned that they were called tree collars! I thought it would be a great idea to round up some of my favorites for you. Since posting my tree on instagram and on the blog a few days ago I have had a lot of messages about the collar. So let’s talk about the tree collar.
Now tree collars can vary from $150 to $35. They are hard to come by while browsing you really have to seek them out. I sought one out this year because my cat would just not stop playing and attacking my tree skirt last year. The skirt also left glitter and burlap all over the place. I loved the idea of the tree looking as if it was planted or self contained, even if it was an artificial tree.
What is a tree collar?
Is typically used instead of a tree skirt. It is usually made out of a hard material that collars around the bottom of your tree. It is purely decorative to cover the base of the Christmas tree. They can be woven, plastic or made out of galvanized metal.
I purchased my tree collar from Target as part of the Hearth and Hand with Magnolia collection. Now I was really impressed with the quality of this collar and the metal. At only $40 it is definitely the best deal I have seen on a tree collar before. Best part was you can order online and pick up in store or have it shipped. See a similar tree collar from Target here.
Below are some other tree skirts I had researched when looking for one for myself.
