How to make a cute felt tree skirt


Happy December!
Are you all busy getting your homes decorated for Christmas?
We've been having lots of fun decorating our home, I can't wait to share it all with you, and I'm just as excited to see all of your homes.

So my Mother in law saw this idea for a tree skirt and shared it with me.
I loved it and had to make me one. It looks so adorable under my tree this year.
It was really simple to make so I wanted to share a how-to with you today.

 

The Supplies you will need are:
-A felt tree skirt ( I can't remember where I found mine,  but one can be made very simply with a piece of felt.  I found this video HERE that will show you how to make one.
- About 3 yards of Yarn (I found one that was very thick and plush)
- 36 White Pom Poms
- A small piece of white felt, used for cutting out leafs
- Tacky Glue
-Scissors


 Step 1: Lay out your tree skirt. I just did mine on the floor.
Step 2: Cut out 27 leaf shapes out of your small piece of felt.


Step 3: Lay out your design using the yarn, felt leaves, and pom poms.

I used the tree skirt edge design as a pattern, at each point I made a loop with the yarn, alternating the direction of the loops.

 I created little holly's next to the yarn loops.  I used 3 pom poms and 2 leaves on the above loops, and 1 pom pom and 1 leaf at the bottom loops. Just play around with it until you're happy with the design.


 The last step: Glue it all down. The tacky glue worked perfect for this.



I love how it looks sitting under my tree.
 And here is a quick peek at my Christmas tree this year. . . more pictures to come!


 So if you don't have a skirt for your tree yet, this is a super simple one, it's easy and didn't cost a lot to make. You could also play around with the colors, white on red would be cute, or red berries and green leaves would look very festive as well.

Thanks for Stopping by,
Emily

  5. I love that tree skirt! We've had our tree in a galvanized bucket for the last several years but I'm tucking this idea away for when the day comes that I'm ready for a skirt again. Beautiful!
