Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt

By: Roseanna Beck for FaveCrafts.com

Crochet a lovely Christmas tree skirt using one of Roseanna Beck's free crochet patterns.  Red, green and white give this tree skirt a festive look that will match your other Christmas decor.  This is a simple and fun pattern that will help add a touch of classic Christmas to your tree.  Feel free to use whatever colors you'd like to help accent your decor scheme.  I think it would look equally beautiful using white, silver, gold, and blue yarn.  Crochet this simple Christmas tree skirt for yourself or someone you love.
