Everybody’s puzzling over what Christmas tree decor to choose, what ornaments to make and which style is better this time. But most of us forget that covering or decorating a tree base is also necessary and your tree base decor should correspond to the style and maybe colors of the whole tree. Let’s consider some of the most creative ideas to cover your tree base and make it look more magical.


Baskets are the most popular covers for Christmas trees because they bring a chic and cozy rustic touch to any space and look rather neutral at the same time, they will fit many interiors and decor styles. Your tree can be decorated with various ornaments, garlands, buntings and other things, or you can just have some lights on or maybe no decor – with a basket your tree will be fabulous!


A crate is another cool option for covering your tree base, it will bring an industrial and maybe vintage touch to your tree and decor. Take any crate you like and use some finish that you prefer or just whitewash it to make more delicate. Prints left will make your crate look more industrial.

Buckets And Baths

Wanna make your tree super rustic? A galvanized bucket or bath is your thing then! Choose a proper piece that fits your tree and put it there, this is especially cool with a tree with no decor or just some pine cones – as if you’ve just brought it from the wood. Another idea is to decorate the tree with bold vintage ornaments to get vintage and rustic style in one.


Tree skirts will never go out of style! They look cool, they can be easily DIYed and will fit any tree style – just choose or make a skirt according to your tree. Don’t want to sew? Take a chunky knit blanket or some faux white fur and cover the tree base with it, it will imitate snow.

Other Ideas

Don’t want anything standard? Make a whole snowy scene under the tree, your kids will definitely love it! Put your tree into a drum or into a sleigh or just into a fitting gift box, that won’t take a lot of time and will look cool.
