When our sons were little guys, they just couldn’t resist fiddling around with the presents under the Christmas tree, seeking to discover the contents of the tantalizing packages. I told my husband how the most disappointing Christmas morning of my childhood was when I had snooped my way through all my gifts and completely destroyed the element of sweet surprise. So he and I decided that at our house all the presents would remain out of sight and out of reach until the boys were asleep on Christmas Eve. Sometimes this did not occur until quite early on Christmas morning!

If you too have adopted the practice of hiding presents until the big day, you will appreciate having something visually appealing under the tree where wrapped gifts normally would be – like this handpainted tree skirt with meaningful messages. This 54” diameter skirt contains quotes from the New Testament in gold textile paint on upholstery fabric, accented with two-tone gold herald angels. It is backed with solid cotton fabric and interlined with light quilt batting for body. Closes with mesh fabric loops over real seashells (it was made at the beach, after all).

The phrases are “Great joy”, “Peace on earth”, “Glory to God”, “Good will” and “Glad tidings”., with an angel between the script. Durable, gentle washable, destined to become a family heirloom. Made with love and a deep appreciation for the meaning of Christmas. Goes nicely with the "Love Joy Peace" Christmas stockings in this shop. Packaged in a shiny cellophane bag with colorful hangtag (no financial documents included in the packaging, so it can be shipped directly to the recipient without disclosing cost).

Fifth photo shows this skirt under a twelve-foot fundraiser upside-down tree at a hospital benefit auction. It would look gorgeous under your tree, even if it's right side up! Designed, painted, sewn, signed and copyrighted on a small island north of Seattle, where Christmas is far and away the most-loved holiday of all! And may God bless us, every one.
