DIY Ruffled Tree Skirt

I would like to start off by announcing the winner of the Holiday Giveaway: CONGRATULATIONS to Kiara Ficklin on winning a free set of serving spoons from Melanie's Marketplace!


This project is very easy, and only requires three supplies: 
old tree skirt, fabric, and hot glue.

You see, I was tired of my ugly, boring old tree skirt from WalMart, so I decided to jazz it up a bit with some new fabric and some ruffles. 



I picked up my favorite fabric (duck canvas), and my favorite pattern (chevron) from Hobby Lobby. I bought four yards of the fabric, but still had plenty leftover to make pillow cases.

I cut my fabric into three inch wide strips and began gluing it, starting at the bottom of the tree skirt. I folded the fabric over a little bit for every ruffle and just kept on gluing. I went around and around and around until the whole thing was covered! 


 Notice the ribbon falling off the tree? That would be from Lucy's tail. I readjust it at least 10 times a day.



Although simple, this project was pretty time consuming, but totally worth every minute!
I love the way it looks in our living room under or green red and silver tree. 
Ahhh... Christmas time is here at last. 

Has anyone else ever attempted one of these ruffled tree skirt beauties? 
I would love to see them!

Keeping checking back for more Christmas Projects! I have a whole slew of projects in the works and in my noggin. We'll see how much I can get done after finals this week!
