This is the most simple tree skirt ever and there is no sewing involved (you can sew it if you are so inclined)! Follow these steps and you’ll have a beautiful skirt in no time.
Make or buy a cheapy tree skirt. You can make one from batting or an old t-shirt if its a small tree. Just cut a circle of fabric and cut a hole outta the middle. Cut a slit up one of the sides all the way to the middle hole. I also bought a few for other trees at a second hand store for 99 cents. You can also use a cheap dollar store skirt if you want.
Chose a fabric that coordinates with your decor and cut it into strips. My skirt is really large so my strips were around 6″ wide and as long as I could get them. For a smaller skirt use a smaller width. My choice in fabric was this gold fabric that matches the wedding decor for a wedding I’m decorating for. I would usually choose something bright and funky like an Amy Butler or Kaffe Fassett fabric. Check out or fabrics and I’m sure you’ll find something you just love!
Take the strips and hot glue them to the outside of the tree skirt. Make sure that you overlap the fabric onto itself to make it look ruffled and glue where needed. Make sure the fabric hangs over the skirt by a few inches. You can sew it if you would rather, but I am into shortcuts in anyway possible.
Continue gluing and overlapping the fabric until you have covered the entire skirt. I let my fabric strips overlap one another by at least 2 inches on each row. If you are making a smaller skirt you can overlap it by maybe an inch or so. Use common sense.
All Done! These are fun to make for your miniature trees too. My daughter is begging me to make one for her pink tree so we’ll be working on that one soon! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
