I have an extremely easy tree skirt project to share with you today. But, I must warn you, if you are looking for a highly technical and by the book tutorial, this is not the post for you! :) This project took me five minutes tops and I was totally winging it the entire time. There is absolutely no sewing or gluing involved, and it will certainly never grace the pages of a magazine, but I got the perfect tree skirt I was looking for, so I'm ok with it! :)
I found a white ruffled tablecloth at an estate sale recently. I picked it up, unfolded it, saw it was for a round table and had a perfect ruffled edge. And.......it was only $.75! What could I do with it?
I put it down.
A few seconds later I picked it back up.
Then it hit me!
It would make a perfectly ruffled no-sew $.75 tree skirt!!!! Score!!
So, when it was time to break out the Christmas decor after Thanksgiving, I got to work on my tree skirt.
I laid it out and using a bowl traced a circle in the center, then cut it out.
Next, I made a large cut to go around the tree stand.
Here's where I got lazy. I cut three strips down each side.
So they could be tied around the base of the tree.
And voila!!! A beautiful tree skirt!!
Would you have been able to pass up this perfect ruffle?
