The base cover for the Christmas Tree is an extra stylish detail to make your holiday home even more beautiful and original
Base covers for Christmas trees Well, yes, this is also part of the endless solutions to decorate our Tree on the occasion of the most beautiful party ever. We have published many articles in the past advising on how to decorate the Christmas Tree, which colours to choose for the decorations (or for the Tree itself), and which style. Today we are talking about the underneath Christmas tree, or basic bodies, or even skirts for the Christmas tree, a seemingly obvious accessory, but which can make the difference between a successful set-up and a sloppy and clumsy one.
The Christmas tree cover is nothing more than the covering that hides the base of the tree, whether it is a vase, in the case of real Christmas trees, or a support of some kind, in the case of artificial Christmas trees. Especially in the case of the latter, the support is usually made up of rather ugly metal elements, which make adequate coverage even more necessary. Here, then, is the ‘skirt’ for the Christmas tree, which with a little imagination and taste can become an integral part of the Christmas decorations. Not only that but since gifts are also arranged under the Tree, the presence of a colourful base cover, which harmonises with the furniture and other homely decorations, will make the moment of the exchange of gifts even more pleasant.
Usually, the base covers for the Christmas Tree are made of fabric mats, because they must wrap the vase or the base of the Christmas Tree softly. There are also more rigid models, which create a kind of cone around the structure. They are equipped with a hole in the middle, from which the trunk of the Tree comes out, and usually also have a side opening, which allows them to be inserted and removed easily even once the Christmas Tree is already set up. In this way, when the work is finished, we can hide metal supports, lighting wires and everything that could ruin the final effect of our Christmas set-up.
You can also choose other solutions to cover the base of the Christmas Tree, such as the timeless crepe paper, which is ‘shaped’ around any type of support, or a wicker basket, a wooden box, or wanting to remain on the idea of the fabric an old scarf, a coloured carpet, a wool shawl. Some use a lot of jute, a material used for many skirts for the Christmas tree, parcel paper and, why not, coloured boxes that simulate fake Christmas gifts… but the latter solution seems really sad!!
