My own tree skirt (seen above and at the top of the post) is candlewicking, a very 1970s-1980s revival of a much older craft technique. You can read about my tree skirt here: candlewicking tree skirt. This was made from a kit which my parents had given me many years ago. I looked on eBay and saw a few similar kits, but nothing just the same. They are pricey.
I keep thinking I would like to make a new one. I've seen some lovely patchwork ideas, and some cross-stitch ones which are especially beautiful. But then, we usually place a lighted village beneath our tree, so not much of the tree skirt is seen anyway!
Hope you've enjoyed these ideas!
