Why Christmas Tree Collars Are the Christmas Decoration You Didn’t Know You Needed!
Last year, I was in the store, and snapped a picture of the cutest hammered metal Christmas tree collar, and showed it in my Instagram stories. My inbox filled up with questions. I had no idea how much discussion that little story would spark! So I put together this guide, All About Christmas Tree Collars-Why Christmas Tree Collars Are the Christmas Decoration You Didn’t Know You Needed!
1) What are Christmas tree collars?
Christmas tree collars are an accessory to go around the tree, hide the stand and base of the tree, and replace tree skirts.
2) Do they hold water?
No, they do not hold water. Use the stand that you normally use for a real tree and put the water in it. The collar goes around the stand.
3) Do tree collars fit all trees?
They should. Round tree collars range from about 21″ in diameter to 27″ in diameter, and between 9″ and 11″ in height. If you have a very small, slim tree, you might want to consider purchasing a smaller collar, and if you have a very large, full tree, a bigger collar. But I have seen all sized tree collars on all sized trees, and you just about can’t go wrong!
4) Will they work for real or artificial trees?
Both! The collar surrounds the tree stand and the base of the tree-both real or fake trees just stand inside the collar.
5) Will it prevent pets from getting in the tree?
It might! I supposed a very clever and limber animal could squeeze in the top, but I bet it would deter most!
6) What are the advantages of a tree collar?
Tree collars are like a new accessory to an old outfit! They add a fresh look to your tree. Tree skirts seem to attract pine needles, dust, pet hair, glitter, and flocking. And have you ever seen a washable tree skirt? I’m not sure I have. Pets always seem to think a tree skirt is a blanket to lay on and mine was always covered in dog hair. Tree collars stay MUCH cleaner than a tree skirt. Dust, pet hair, glitter, and flocking don’t stick to it, and if anything does get on it, it can be wiped down easily!
