DIY Double Ruffle Tree Skirt

If there is one project I wanted to get done this holiday season, it was to make a ruffled tree skirt. I have seen them all over blog land and I knew I wanted to make one for myself. I also knew that my budget was very little..... Under $5 to be exact. I started out like I do with all my projects, I hit up my favorite thrift stores. I have many stores I love to frequent, but my favorite thrift store has got to be The Giving Store. It is a non-profit thrift store, with some of the sweetest people working there. Every time I walk in, they greet me by name. They always ask what projects I am working on. They either have super good memories or I am in that store far too much. Either way, they had exactly what I needed. I found a red and white checked sheet. I knew this would go perfectly with the red felt tree skirt, which came with our artificial tree.


I brought my fabric home and got to cutting. I cut my strips, which were about a foot wide and were the length of the sheet. Once my strips were cut, I began pinning them onto the felt tree skirt. I ended up pleating my fabric as I pinned it. This was much easier than doing a running stitch down each long strip. 




I also hemmed the bottom of the ruffles. Once my ruffles were pinned, I sewed them onto my tree skirt. I did two rows of ruffles and then I was done. Quick and easy!



See those stockings on the background? I have a tutorial for those coming up this afternoon. Super quick and easy! What fun Christmas crafts are you all working on
 this week? 7 more days left Lovelies!

I am beyond stoked!
