Cover that poor thing up with a tree skirt. Sheesh. :)
A very basic, yet classy tree skirt.
I have had several requests on how to make one……so here is a very simple solution. You’re going to love how easy this is. And how many ways you can personalize it and make it your own.
I stopped by Hancock Fabric and checked out their clearanced upholstery fabrics…..and found a Christmas-y color. This fabric was 60 inches wide and I bought 2 yards for a couple of dollars. And this made a good sized tree skirt. Probably perfect for a 6-7 foot tree. Anything larger, and you would need to piece fabric together to make it bigger. Then I found upholstery/curtain trimming on sale for 80% off. So it ended up being about $1.25 a yard. I used about 4 yards.
So first, cut a circle out of your material…(find the center, pin it and then measure out the same distance from the center pin all the way around in a circle, pinning along the way. Then cut out along the outer pins.)
Then, sew some double folded bias tape around the center circle. (I used some scrap bias tape and didn’t quite have enough, so mine doesn’t quite reach the ends…..but it will do.)
