This week is going to be super busy, but I managed to squeeze in a project last night in between play practice and some serious couponing. We put up my mom's Christmas tree this weekend, but she did not have a tree skirt. I remembered seeing a DIY ruffled skirt somewhere last year and decided to try it.
You will need
- a large square of inexpensive fabric (I recycled this dropcloth)
- 2-3 yards of fabric
- glue gun
- LOTS of glue sticks
Repeat this process all the way around the circle.
My strips weren't long enough to go all the way around, so I seamed them together with hot glue, of course.
|I have no future as a hand model.|
Just keep adding tiers until the whole circle is covered.
I left a small circle in the middle open.
Then, cut a slit where you started and stopped the tiers.
Cut all the way to the center and then cut a hole a little bit larger than a silver dollar for the tree stem.
Cut six strips 1 inch wide and about 4 inches long. Glue them in pairs on each side of the slit. One pair at the center, one in the middle, and one at the outer edge to tie it closed.
There you have it, a no sew ruffled tree skirt.
I love it and it should look great with my mom's tree!
