What is a Christmas Tree Collar?

A Christmas tree collar is simply a structured woven, metal or wood covering for your Christmas tree base. And while tree skirts have been the tree base covering options for decades, in the past few years, tree collars have made a rise in popularity.

The benefits of a collar over tree skirts are many, including that you don’t have to worry about getting a skirt flat or getting the wrinkles out. Collars can even deter pets from messing with the base of a tree or trying to climb a tree! (I have been known to use both a collar and a skirt, 😜 so it’s a totally personal choice, of course.)

Where did Tree Collars Come From?

I have been a longtime fan of tree collars, going back to the days of 2013 when I made my own wooden “crate” collar because you couldn’t even buy them back then.

Then the trend toward tree collars started when decorators were looking for any kind of new and different way to hide a Christmas tree stand. As an example, before retailers caught on to the trend, decorators would use any kind of basket they could find. But finding a basket with a large enough base proved to be difficult.

A couple of years ago I created an easy DIY Christmas tree base with a bucket, concrete, rocks and a PVC pipe. I love how versatile it is and allows me to set it inside any size basket.

So, it’s been really fun to see all of the collar selections that retailers have brought to the market in the past few years. Moreover, they are made the right size to cover most tree stand and make it easy to create a beautiful finishing touch for your Christmas tree.

Tip: Always be sure to measure your tree base and check to make sure the one you’re ordering will fit.

And over the past few years I’ve purchased several of them for my trees.

They are so cute and popular, that they sell out early each season and I didn’t want you to miss them this year! I will usually suggest waiting to buy large purchases until a big sale weekend or holiday, but when it comes to tree collars, you’ll want to grab these while they are still in stock!
