Poinsettias are a very popular decorating choice during the holidays. Personally, I love the poinsettia flower, but I opt to avoid using real poinsettias in my home because we have pets. A poinsettia can poison a dog or cat and make them sick, so I prefer to find other ways to incorporate the beloved flower into my Christmas decorations.
Making and using a poinsettia latch hook tree skirt is the perfect solution for pet owners who love poinsettias.

An Alternative Tree Skirt
If you can’t find a tree skirt kit that you like, you could select a latch hook rug or wall hanging kit. This is a great idea to create a unique latch hook tree skirt.
One way to adapt the kit(s) to make a tree skirt, would be to attach the completed latch hook to a pre-quilted tree skirt using the fabric tree skirt as your foundation. Use one kit to embellish the quilted tree skirt, or use two or three kits to complete a tree skirt with continuous design all the way around.
If you would like your latch hook tree skirt to encircle the bottom of the tree you can use three kits and connect them edge to edge or by slightly overlapping them. The design itself will determine whether you want them to meet edge to edge or whether you want the pattern to overlap for a continuous finished pattern. This should be done before you actually hook the yarn to the canvas. You will need to cut a circle in what will be the center of the tree skirt to surround the tree trunk. Remember to leave one edge open so you can wrap it around the bottom of the tree.
You can use multiple kits to create a tree skirt, wall hanging, or a welcome mat. You could even make several rugs and continue the design throughout the house.
