Store-bought tree skirts can be pricey, and there’s no guarantee you’ll find the style or the colors you’d like. Why not customize your skirt by making it yourself? A tree skirt can be simple or detailed, classic and traditional or modern and clean. It can be whimsical, fun, fresh, or chic. You can use it to finalize the tone of your decor, so use these 10 DIY Christmas tree skirts as inspiration for your own!
