Originally, Christmas trees, which were usually real trees, were illuminated by candles instead of light bulbs, which means that a wax and needle-filled mess awaited the poor soul in charge of cleanup. Christmas tree skirts were the perfect solution to this dilemma, but now, with most trees being made of plastic, and lights made of LEDs, Christmas tree skirts serve just one purpose: to make your Christmas trees look more festive than ever (unless you have a real tree, in which case this will still serve a functional purpose as well). Check out these festive crochet Christmas tree skirt ideas and see which ones fit your sense of style.
