Wow! Am I ever late posting this morning! Every year I forget how long it actually takes to decorate the house for Christmas!
With deciding to change the colours of our Christmas decorations this year to match the colours from redecorating earlier in the year, I didn’t even think about the tree skirt! 🙄
I was looking around the craft room and the laundry room and anywhere else I thought might give me some inspiration lol.
I came to our old light gray tablecloth. Note: light gray tablecloth + 2 messy men = bad idea lol.
I remembered seeing a video somewhere about turning a square of fabric into an alternative to a tree skirt, so that’s what I did!
Note again: if using an artificial tree like me… do it before you assemble the whole tree lol 😳, much easier.
The first thing is to lay your piece of fabric on the floor with the tree stand centred on it.
Fill in around the stand with some kind of stuffing. I was out of stuffing/batting so I just used some old curtain sheers I had washed and out away. You could use blankets, sheets, whatever you have. Just remember if you have a real tree to leave a space for watering.
Then all I did was gather it up in my hands and tie a nice sparkly ribbon into a bow to hold it in place. Fluff up the ribbon and fabric until it looks how you want it!
Now I don’t have to rush around trying to find a tree skirt to match!
