The Twelve Days of Craftsmas: Tree skirt
December 13, 2008
I believe Brenda Lee said it best:
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree,
Have a happy holiday;
Everyone’s dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way!
- Thrift-store skirt (the fuller, the better)
- Hook-and-loop tape (a.k.a., Velcro); adhesive and fusible are fine
- Sewing machine, and an iron if using fusible hooks ‘n’ loops
Says ReadyMade: Remove the zipper and cut the skirt down the back. Pleat and sew the waistband so it’s about 14 inches around. Apply Velcro to the waist opening (long enough so that you can adjust the skirt based on the size of the trunk) and along the cut edges. Wrap it around the tree below the branches and anchor with gifts.
Shazam! Feel free to share your skirts (and trees) in the comments.
