I need to get a Christmas tree skirt. Where did you get yours? I saw that Target is having some on sale today for $25... is that a good price? Seemed a bit high to me.

I got mine at a Hills Department Store about 28 years ago.

I got my stepmom one last year at Kmart. It was clearance priced and the colors fit her scheme perfectly.

$25 sounds about right, but I buy mine on clearance on 12/26 when the price is lower.

If it is the exact tree skirt that you want, you have to decide to pay that price now or wait it out until after Christmas.

I would write down the SKU number, just in case, sometimes, you can find it online after Christmas.

I can't remember if ours came from Walmart or Target but we paid about $25 for it.

I got mine at menards. It fit my scheme perfectly (peacock feathers) so I paid full price for it. I'm pretty sure I paid about $25

Every few years I go to Joann's and buy about 3 yards of some really pretty fabric...then I drape it all around the bottom of the tree. One year I had gold lamé, another year red and green plaid with a gold thread through it, other years other fabrics. The fabric is on sale this time of year and it looks really full and pretty under the tree. Then I can just fold it up and store it in the box. And I can change it if I change the decorations on the tree or my room decor.

Ours is from Pottery Barn and I really like it. We've had it since 2000 and it's still in excellent condition and super cute to boot. I recall that it was a bit on the expensive side, but this is our 12th year of using it and it shows every sign of lasting as long as we want it to, so I think it's a good value.

ETA: Another thing I like about it is that when we got it, it was just DH and me. We also got coordinating PB stockings. We've since had DS and have different pets (and yes, we have customized stockings for our pets LOL). Since PB uses the same color palette from year to year for holiday decor, we have been able to get other stockings as we've needed them that coordinate perfectly with what we already have. I didn't think about that when I bought them at first, but it turned out to be very handy.

Instead of a tree skirt I bought some fabric and wrapped it around the bottom. It looks so pretty and very cheap.

There's a local craft show held every year that is known for the quality of the crafters. I came across a tree skirt that I loved and bought it there. Every year when I get it out, I'm glad I spend the $$ on it. I love it still and it must be about 10 years old now.

Hobby Lobby for the main tree and Target for the fun tree. I think I paid $40 at Hobby Lobby and $25 at Target.

I paid $40 for mine at Kirkland's 8 or 9 years ago. I love it. It's in great condition.

I see tons at Hobby Lobby and you can always use a coupon. But I can't speak to their quality.

Good luck finding one you love!

I think I got ours last year at Menards. Don't remember what I paid for it, but I looked at a LOT of tree skirts, online and in stores. Funny thing is, that I couldn't remember if I'd actually bought one; asked my husband the other day if we'd had a new one last year. Wen we brought up the boxes the other day I found it.

I bought mine at Disney. It's the Bohemian themed one.

I have a beautiful green and red velvet skirt that I've used for years. Decided to change it up this year so got a new one.

My tree skirt is a couple of yards of red plaid fabric left from a costume made years ago. I just spread it out around the tree and it looks really pretty; except when the gifts are under the tree you can't even see it!

Crate & Barrel for $100 three years ago and it's absolutely beautiful. White and silver, heavily beaded, soft and huge.

It was a splurge...

I don't have a skirt, just some gold cheap fabric laid around the base of the trunk. I figure what's the point, when there are gifts under the tree you can see it anyway. I only have an empty tree for about a week.

I bought one a Bombay Company years ago. It's gorgeous. I also have one from K-Mart by Martha Stewart. It's really nice, gold with beading. It was only about $25-30 but looks really expensive.

Marshalls/Ross/TJ Maxx...one of those. I spent a couple years looking for one that fit my color sceme that I liked. I bought one from Crate and Barrel that once it came (I ordered it online) I didn't like it. There was one a couple years ago at Pottery Barn that I liked, but couldn't justify the cost. I paid under $25 for the one I finally bought.

Our tree skirt is actually a round tablecloth. I made a straight cut to the middle on one side. Didn't even finish those edges. It all gets covered up with presents. I think I bought the tablecloth at Walmart 20 years ago.

For many years, I used the skirt part of an emerald green bridesmaid dress. It worked really well.

For the past several years, I have used two woolen blankets that are red and green plaid. They have been in DH's family for years and have special meaning to him.

PB Kids for probably $60-70 I think 9 years ago. It is in perfect condition, had it monogramed and have matching stockings for all 4 of us with our names on them as well. I bought 4 stockings at the same time - we just had DH, myself and DD at the time but I anticipated, hopefully one more little one. Sure enough, Luke came along 2+ years later and I love that we have a matching set.

I do love the more adult/elegant ones, but this one is perfect for our family and very durable and I plan to use it at least until the kids are out of the house if not longer.

I got mine at K-Mart, maybe 5-6 years ago? I think it was either $20 or 25. You can find a ton for that price (half off the original) at Hobby Lobby.

ETA: Mine's purple. Do you know how hard it was to find a purple tree skirt? LOL! I like the fabric idea. I somewhat do that with my little tree, but it's a gold lame' table cloth. I wrap it around the little tree and the box it sits on.

I got one at Dillard's years ago. I'd imagine it was in the $30range.

The second tree has a skirt that I got at Hobby Lobby. The price on the package was ridiculous, like $55 or some crazy amount. I waited until it was on sale for 50% off before I purchased it. They've got some cute tree skirts, but their marked price is highway robbery.

The tree skirt I use with my family room tree was bought over 10 years ago at K-Mart right before they went out of business in my area. It was on sale for $20 and rang up for $9. The tree skirts I use with my office and bedroom trees were bought last year at hobby lobby for 50% off for $25 and $30

I use a table cloth from Target. They are much cheaper than the tree skirts. One year I used a fleece blanket with snowflakes on it. It was from Target also.

I have one with a train cross stitched around the hem that I made and we used for about 20 years.

Last year, I bought a new one. I think it came from Homegoods and was about $50. We are in a new hose and had a 12 foot tree. I needed a bigger footprint for the skirt.
