A tree skirt made from men's tiesThis was made from men's ties that I got from friends who's husbands no longer wore them. I did open them up but if you have enough you would not have to open them up.

Cut the length you want from each (should be the same length), then hand or machine stitch them together. Leave the last one open so it will go around the tree. Cut a hole in the middle and use one of the cut off pieces as a binding. Some men have quite a collection of Christmas ties that would work perfectly for this.
