Everybody’s puzzling over what Christmas tree décor to choose, what ornaments to make and which style is better this time. But most of us forget that covering or decorating a tree base is also necessary and your tree base décor should correspond to the style and maybe colors of the whole tree. Let’s consider some of the most creative ideas to cover your tree base and make it look more magical.

Baskets

Baskets are the most popular covers for Christmas trees because they bring a chic and cozy rustic touch to any space and look rather neutral at the same time, they will fit many interiors and décor styles. Your tree can be decorated with various ornaments, garlands, buntings and other things, or you can just have some lights on or maybe no décor – with a basket your tree will be fabulous!

Buckets And Baths

Wanna make your tree super rustic? A galvanized bucket or bath is your thing then! Choose a proper piece that fits your tree and put it there, this is especially cool with a tree with no décor or just some pinecones – as if you’ve just brought it from the wood. Another idea is to decorate the tree with bold vintage ornaments to get vintage and rustic style in one.

Fabric

Tree skirts will never go out of style! They look cool, they can be easily DIYed and will fit any tree style – just choose or make a skirt according to your tree. Don’t want to sew? Take a chunky knit blanket or some faux white fur and cover the tree base with it, it will imitate snow.
