Crafts are a great project for you to sit down and relax. It gives you something that you can focus on besides work, bills, and buying gifts during the holiday season. Plus, if you have children, crafts are a great way to spend more quality time with them. When it comes to the holiday season, you're probably a little busy, but you can always make time for your children or yourself.

Instead of purchasing a pre-made skirt, you can make one. It's a great craft for adults and children (if supervised).

There are many different Christmas tree skirt kits that you can purchase. These felt applique skirts are pretty simple to put together. The kit will come with the overall tree skirt pattern so that you can make sure every piece is placed in the right spot.

Plus, if you decide to make your own tree skirt, you can personalize it. You can make it simple or elaborate. Even if you purchase the skirt kits, that doesn't mean that you can't add more pieces to make a personalized tree skirt or that you can't take a material marker or sharpie and write a loving note, your family name, children(s)' names, and year on the skirt.

All of the details are up to you when you make your tree skirt, even if you start off with a tree skirt pattern.
