How to Store a Christmas Tree Skirt

In this brief article, we will answer the question, “how to store a Christmas tree skirt?” and provide you with insights on how you can enhance your Christmas ornaments storage to make the most of them and not have to buy new ones each year.

How can you store a Christmas tree skirt?

You can store a Christmas tree skirt by wrapping it up in bubble wrap and keeping it in a box with the other ornaments.

You’ve chosen your Christmas tree ornaments, untangled the lights and added your sparkly topper, but there are still ways to level up your decoration game this year. 

A Christmas tree skirt can cover up the unattractive plastic (if you have a faux tree) or metal (if it is real) stand and create an overall smarter finish.

Once the skirt is used, you can fold it. Then you should wrap it in some bubble wrap. The next step would be to put it in a plastic bag to make sure it is airtight.

The last step is to put the skirt in the container where the other ornaments are being stored. 

Types of tree covering ornaments

There are two types here: tree skirts and tree collars

Christmas tree skirts fan out around the base of your tree, making a dramatic statement. And providing a space to lay presents on so they’re not just lying on the floor. 

Collars wrap more tightly around the stand to give them a more aesthetically pleasing finish. Make sure to measure carefully to ensure it will fit properly around your tree.

Tree skirts are available in a range of materials and styles, and there really is something for everyone this year. 

From wicker tree skirts to felt, faux fur and jute tree skirts, you can always find one to suit your colour scheme, regardless of whether you’re decorating a real tree or an artificial tree.

We love a tabletop Christmas tree displayed on a table in a grand entrance, or placed on a buffet in a dining room. 

A bigger sized tree and tree skirt are often popular with apartment dwellers, retirees, and those who travel during the holiday season. 

It’s small enough to put up with ease, but is simple to decorate and brings just the right amount of Christmas cheer to a home. 

You can find 3’ – 5’ live tabletop trees at Whole Foods, Fresh Market, and your local grocers/plant nurseries. The standard, most popular size tree skirt because it generally works for trees from 6’ tall to 8’ tall. 

We recommend measuring the width of the lowest branches of your Christmas tree, and adding 4-6” to determine the appropriate tree skirt size. 

There’s nothing that makes us hurt more than seeing a beautiful, gracious Christmas tree being “choked” by a too-small tree skirt. 

Note that if you choose to display a slender Christmas tree, a 52” skirt can be used for trees taller than 8’.
