"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt

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.

Ms. Beck - Thank you. For this beautiful pattern. I am incurring some issues, on rounds 3 and 4, do you add any chains between stitich set, I.e., after 2dc, ch2, 2dc any chains here? Thank you for your time.

Hi Terry! It looks like no chains are added in between stitch sets. Please let me know if I can help with anything else!

I love this pattern! I'd like to use different colors and make this into a floor rug for my living room!
