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.)
