I know, I know…..we are about two months away from Christmas. But it’s never to early to plan and organize all your festive decorations. This may be something that’s been around for a while, but it’s new to me, so I thought I’d share.

Because COVID ruined so may plans last year, folks are going all out for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. And the experts are predicting a fun decorating trend for the Christmas season: Tree collars. Instead of plaid, velvet or felt pieces of fabric around the bottom of your tree, people are using tree collars. They are stiff metal, wood or woven forms that cover up your tree stand.

Much like tree skirts, tree collars can be used with an artificial or live tree. I realize tree skirts are traditional, but I’m loving these!

Yahoo Finance found 20 of the coolest and cutest tree collars for Christmas 2021. No matter what your style, you’re sure to find one you love. Some of them can be pricey, but if you’re crafty you could make your own. And of course Amazon has some that are adorable and affordable.
