How to make a tree skirt

Picture of how to make a tree skirt
I am trying my hardest to not be a grinch this year. I bought a little tree, some lights, and some ornaments and set it up in our living room. But then I realized it looked a little naked on the bottom - I needed a tree skirt! :)

Making a tree skirt is super easy to do and you can make one in any size! You can sew it or use fabric glue - whatever is easiest for you. I did a mix of both since I plan on using it over and over. The tree skirt can also be made from all kinds of fabric - I made mine from quilting cotton since I have lots on hand, but I think it would be lovely in felt, fleece or linen!

You can really make a tree skirt of any size - head to the next step for more info on that. You'll need to increase the amount of fabric and binding as needed. :)

If you're not the best at sewing or want to get this done quick, you can easily make this no-sew by employing a hot glue gun or fabric glue. If you go the fabric glue route, I really recommend Beacon Fabri-Tac. I've used other fabric glues and they just don't hold up - but Fabri-Tac is wonderful. Dries and adheres quickly and stays nice and strong even after washing!

This is beautiful! I'm having fun with Christmas this year - bought a bigger fake tree :) during the online black Friday deals and recently bought a TON of lights and going to decorate everywhere! :) I definitely need to make one of these - so beautiful and simple. I have basically draped fabric around the bottom to mimic a tree skirt - although hopefully I will take some time to make one this weekend! Thanks for the inspiration!
