Sewing: Christmas Tree Skirt
A Christmas tree skirt – it’s so adorable and fits well with our farmhouse holiday style. Do you remember the Holiday Home Tour from 2016? Well this tree skirt matches our stockings – it’s super fun.
I’m making a 60 inch diameter circular tree skirt. Let’s get started!
Christmas Tree Skirt Supplies
- 72 inches of 3 inch wide faux fur
- 2 yards of 60 inch wide fabric
- sewing machine
- matching thread
I made mine double sided, so if you’re going to do that, too, then double up on the fabric and trim.
First, wash and dry your fabric – but not the fur.
Next, fold the fabric in 4, with the middle point taped to the floor. Get out a string and tie one end to a fabric marker and measure 57.5 inches. Then tape the non-marker end to the middle point already taped to the floor. Once that’s done, trace out your circle (you’re actually only tracing out 1/4 of the circle).
If you’re making it double sided, repeat the process on the second fabric.
Find the middle and cut out a 2 inch circle and cut a straight line from the outer edge to the middle circle.
Serge on the trim and then top stitch if you’re not doing double sided. If you are doubling it up, serge on the other trim and then match both skirts, right sides together and serge all around leaving about 5 inches open on the straight line cut. Turn it right side out and stitch the tree skirt closed.
It looks so festive and cozy!
I love how it turned out. Most likely it’ll be on this side, but the weight of doing the tree skirt double sided will help keep it structured and not flimsy.
Are you getting excited for Christmas? Only 4 more sleeps! Ho-Ho-Ho!!
