It is the eternal forgotten. We care about decorating the center, which is usually the part that looks the most, and we even place the star very carefully on the tip of our Christmas tree. But what about the base?
The base of our tree is usually the least decorated part. However, it also looks great. And when we see a superbly decorated Christmas tree and discover that its base shows part of its skeleton, we get a little disappointed! And who does not? That’s why we want to help you decorate the base of your tree with great ideas.
Fiber baskets and pots
If the classic goes, nothing better than opting for natural fiber baskets. The baskets will give a very authentic and natural touch to your decoration. In addition, the baskets are super fashionable, so you can use them after Christmas in many other ways. For example, to store your magazines, plaids, cushions, dirty clothes, etc. It all depends on the size of your basket.
If you are looking for realism, you can always opt for a pot. Of course, try that the design and even the materials of your pot keep relation with the one of your tree. In other words, make sure that the style of your tree and that of your pot are similar. In this way, both pieces will be integrated into your decoration and the effect will be more realistic. Our suggestions? A pot of vegetable fibers. It is decorative, light and very natural. The porcelain and cement are very decorative, but too heavy.
