If you don't own a tree skirt, or don't want to spend money on one, take a cue from Gap and wrap your Christmas tree stand up like a present! You can use any old piece of fabric to do so, be it a scarf, a tablecloth, or just a remnant. Lay the fabric down, place the tree in the center of it, and then lay packing peanuts or any other sort of stuffing around it to create a more round shape. Then, pull up the corners of the fabric and tie it with a simple knot! Voila!
