Repurpose Your Christmas Tree Collar as Storage Throughout the Year!

3 Materials
10 Minutes

Christmas tree collars are so pretty; and come in all shapes and textures. They are also big and can take up lots of space to store. I decided to put mine to use throughout the year!

I found this beautiful wicker tree collar basket at the Goodwill for $10! When I first spotted it, it was full of Christmas wreaths. The basket caught my eye; and it was a bonus when I discovered it was a tree collar! I have been looking for one!

Baskets can be so expensive, and storage tight (especially for big items like this tree collar.) I'm going to show you how I created a pretty storage spot for random Christmas decor, linens, and pillows using a Christmas tree collar!

This is the beautiful wicker basket tree collar I found at the Goodwill! For $10, it was a steal!

I placed it in a corner, where I knew it would stay the entire year. I would suggest finding a place you plan to leave it since it is bottomless.

I decided to store some random Christmas decor in the bottom. I knew I would not need it until next year; so being on the bottom will work perfectly.

I then decided to add some random linen type items I use throughout the year here and there. I included random table runners and curtains.

I added a layer of white curtains I am currently not using to cover the other items.

I then added a few pillows I had lying around. I tend to switch those out throughout the year as well.

I added a cozy blanket, a couple floral stems, and a decorative sign to finish it off!

I love how pretty and useful this little corner turned out!

    I love that you made storage but I have to admit I've never heard of a "tree collar". I've always used a "tree skirt". Can you tell me how they are used?
