Hi, I’m Clara from Online Fabric Store, A tree skirt adds that finishing touch to your Christmas decorations. This tree skirt is an easy project that doesn’t require any sewing. The ruffled burlap is great for a rustic yet refined look. So let’s get started. The materials you’ll need are: felt, a variety of burlap, ribbon, a marker, scissors, a hot glue gun, and also string. Make a mark in the middle of the felt. Use string, a marker, and a pin to draw circles. This tree skirt will be 3 feet wide, so I’m tying the marker 1 and 1/2 feet from the center. Use a pin or something with a point to hold the string on the center mark. Draw a circle all the way around. You can make your tree skirt any size you want. Then re-tie the marker so it’s 3 inches from the center to create a 6 inch circle. Also mark a line from the outer circle to the inner circle. Cut out the large circle, then down the line, and around the small circle. Next, cut strips of burlap that are 8 inches wide. I’m going to use several colors of burlap. Fold one of the strips in half and glue it down so it covers the edge of the felt. Create the ruffles by pinching the burlap and gluing it down. Continue to make pleats until you go all the way around the circle. By folding the burlap in half, the raw edges aren’t exposed so it won’t fray. It also creates more volume. To add a new piece, just fold under the edge of the new strip and overlap it a bit with the first. At the end, cut it a little long and glue it to the back of the felt. Then, glue down the center of each pleat so they lie flat. Repeat for the second layer, overlapping it with the first. Continue to add layers until you get close to the top. It works best to make larger pleats at the bottom, and smaller pleats that are closer together as you get towards the top. On the last layer, leave some burlap overhanging the felt at the top. If you need to make the final strip a little bigger, you can fold it so the front side is wider than the back. Create small pleats all the way around. Again, glue down the center of each pleat so they lie flat. Fold under the sides and glue, then trim off the extra burlap at the top so it’s even with the felt. Also glue down the sides of the pleat so they’re flat and won’t fray. Finally, cut 6 pieces of ribbon that are about 2 feet long. You can use any ribbon you want. On this burlap ribbon, I’m cutting off the edges so it will tie easier. Glue the ends to the back of the felt at the top, bottom, and middle of the opening. Tie knots or bows to close it and the tree skirt is complete. If burlap’s not your thing you can use any other material like muslin, canvas, decor fabric, or cotton prints to create a look that will complement your other holiday decorations. Thanks for watching this OFS project.
