This past Thanksgiving, my mother-in-law, a lifelong needlepointer, arrived for a visit. Packed in her bag: an intricate needlepoint Christmas tree skirt, commissioned by my sister-in-law (“It took months to make,” she told me). I dropped a few hints and now she’s making one for me, in black-and-white (of course). In the meantime, here are a few appealing tree skirts I’ve been eyeing.
Above: The Hawaiian Quilt Tree Skirt in Pine is exclusive to SF kitchen shop March; “these hand-appliquéd quilted skirts are made by master quilters in the Pampanga region of the Philippines, who learned the craft from their Hawaiian teachers. Each quilt is hand-produced following a unique design originating from Hawaii”; $600 from March. Above: Designed by Celina Mancurti, the Canvas & Leather Tree Skirt (with personalization option for an extra $10); $142 from Food52. For a less pricey, similarly neutral option, consider the Natural Burlap Christmas Tree Skirt from Etsy seller the Artsy Hippie for $35. Above: The Woven Jute Tree Skirt is $128 from Terrain. Above: The cotton velour Ferm Living Christmas Tree Blanket has gold embroidered is available in three colors: green, rose, and off white; €42 ($49.87). Above: The Cross Stitch Tree Skirt is made of linen with cotton threading and polyester fill; $104 (down from $149) from Rejuvenation Hardware. Above: The handmade Stitched Linen Tree Skirt from Schoolhouse Electric (we also like the Buffalo Check Tree Skirt); $148.
