Finding small cloth tree skirts can be a pain, and they may or may not have the colors or patterns you want. Never fear, you can always print one!
What do I mean? Read on to find out!
Step 1: Materials
Also necessary are: a pair of scissors, a glue stick or other glue, a sheet of aluminum foil and a printout of a 'tree skirt'. I got mine off of the internet, though any circular pattern would do. Just make sure it's big enough to cover the base of your tree, and you're good to go!
Step 2: Step 1: Cut and Paste
Step 3: Step 2: Cut and Cut Again!
After that, you'll want to cut one line down the back, or wherever you want the back to be.
Once you've done that, carefully cut out a hole big enough to go around the very stem of your little tree, so that the foil doesn't get too crinkled until you're ready to arrange it.
Step 4: Step 3: Add to Your Tree!
Crease or fold, flare or mold, crinkle or leave flat to your heart's content. Remember, this is YOUR creation, and you can have it molded any way you want.
If you want it bigger, you can always make one out of construction paper or use bigger printing paper, or a different design altogether. The choice is yours.
You can also save it, or make another one entirely for whatever theme you want to go with for next year. It's disposable, so if you want to give a christmas tree to someone who doesn't have one, it won't cost you but maybe five minutes and a piece of foil.
It's a great way to keep kids busy as well, if they want to help with decorating and you happen to have a small tree for them to play with.
