A whgite tree skirt with circular stitches within the skirt.

I love a good tree skirt. Whether you have a real tree or an older fake tree that drops needles, you know how the little needles seem to end up in so many different parts of your house.

This pattern by The Unraveled Mitten is super cute and chic for those who want a more modern Christmas tree.
