I wanted to share a quick tutorial with you all today! If you're anything like me, you cringe at the price tag that comes with the store bought tree skirts. That's why I decided to make my own this year! I wanted something quick and inexpensive. My first thought was to use oilcloth fabric but then I came across a round vinyl tablecloth for less than $4! It was 60" which was way too big...so I just cut it down to size. I can't give you an exact measurement because I just eyeballed it. :) Here are the supplies I used: vinyl tablecloth in a festive holiday print
Step 1: Fold the tablecloth in half. Cut out a semi circle from the center of your folded material. This will be where the tree will sit.
Step 2: Unfold your tree skirt and cut a straight line down one side, clear to the circular portion that you cut out in the previous step.
Step 3: Slip your bias tape over the cut edge of your fabric so that the bias tape sandwiches the fabric. Squeeze a thin line of glue onto your fabric and press the bias tape firmly down.
Step 4: Continue gluing the bias tape, a little at a time.
Step 5: Turn your tree skirt over and glue down the bias tape along the back as well.
Step 7: Allow the glue to dry and then place the skirt under your tree!
Sit back and enjoy your beautiful tree! :)
