I'm thinking I should make a Christmas tree skirt. The first year Jed and I were married we went to a Christmas tree farm and bought a real Christmas tree. We still have the stand, I've lugged it on all of our moves and stored it away hoping for the day to come when we have a real tree again. The next year we were living at my parents' but wanted our own little tree as well so we bought a little decorative tree that was only about 3 feet high and meant to be an accent, not a Christmas tree, and decorated it with our family's ornaments. Somehow it ended up being our tree for the next several years. Last year I finally broke down and spent the least amount of money possible for a fake tree at Walmart that was a decent height. But because our tiny tree was so little, I just wrapped a fancy Christmas place mat around it's base. I'm not sure what we did last year with our "bigger" tree, but this year I'm thinking I should sew a skirt. I'm thinking something like this.
