1. VELVET RUFFLED TREE SKIRT
I made this tree skirt last year for my client Tara and it’s one of my all time favorites. Probably because of the apple green velvet. There’s no probably about it. You guys know how much I love velvet. Especially this time of year.
The tree skirt features the same shade of velvet we used on Tara’s kitchen cafe curtains on the 2″ ruffle around the edge & ties. The 3/4″ flange is from a red & gold dot while the body of the skirt is made from a fairly heavy weight linen/canvas like fabric and lined with white cotton.
One tree skirt down, 13 more to go…
This tree skirt was 54″ in diameter.
2. REVERSIBLE BEIGE & WHITE RUFFLED TREE SKIRT
This is another favorite…but I sold it and have yet to make myself one.
This tree skirt is made from Ikea “Lenda” curtain panel fabric in both beige and white. I love the texture of this fabric, especially after it’s been washed. It’s a great fabric at a great price for all sorts of projects.
With the beige side up you have a white ruffle and tie…reverse it and you have an all white tree skirt. This tree skirt measured approximately 52″ in diameter.
3. BURLAP & SCRIM RUFFLED TREE SKIRT
I see a pattern developing. So I like ruffles on my tree skirts.
I’ve lost track of how many of this little skirt I’ve made. Simple unlined burlap with a 2″ gathered scrim ruffle and ribbon ties. Due to the width of the burlap this tree skirt measures about 44″ in diameter but can be made larger by piecing the fabric.
4. MONOGRAMMED BURLAP TREE SKIRT
I’ve only experimented one time with a stenciled monogram on burlap but I love the idea of a monogrammed tree skirt.
5. RAG QUILT TREE SKIRT
I’m working on a tutorial for this guy. I adore the look of this tree skirt! Again, made this one and then sold it but I was so tempted to keep it myself.
This was also made using the “Lenda” curtain panels from Ikea.
6. PATCHWORK RUFFLED TREE SKIRT
This cutie was made using 100% cotton quilt fabrics in bright holiday colors and patterns. One of my favorite details on this skirt is the tiny ruffle along the center and back opening.
52″ in diameter.
7. GREEN CHENILLE WITH BLACK & WHITE CHECK RUFFLE TREE SKIRT
I made this one several years ago to use with my “kids” tree. The black & white check fabric is embellished with a tiny red & green flower. The skirt is unlined. I finished the raw edges with black seam binding and used the same for the ties. 50″ in diameter.
8. SQUARE RUFFLED TREE SKIRT
For years I used bright colors on my main tree (aka We Three Trees). One year I made a square tree skirt just for fun.
This year the kids tree is on the upstairs landing. The square skirt is made from the same green chenille as seen above but with a black, green & pink dot fabric for the ruffle. This one measures 46″ square. I got a tad carried away and cut the center opening too big. I cut most of the center circles at 5″ in diameter.
9. VINTAGE WHITE CHENILLE BEDSPREAD
Here you see Loki modeling Courtney’s super cute and easy tree skirt from last Christmas.
I love the idea of just throwing something around the base of the tree. I’ve used bunched up fabric and quilts many times.
10. TABLE CLOTH/SCARF TREE SKIRT
This tree sports sheer red & green table cloths/scarves as it’s tree skirt.
11. BURLAP BAGS and 12. BASKETS as TREE SKIRTS
Here I used a reproduction French Grain Sack from Online Fabric Store to wrap the base on one tree, a linen lined basket for another and a random piece of fabric for the third tree.
The last two “tree skirts” are included because of their uniqueness.
13. GRAPEVINE WREATH TREE SKIRT
via Pinterest and Country Woman Magazine
I use grapevine garland in my trees but I’ve never thought to use it as the base.
14. FAUX FUR THROW TREE SKIRT
I pretty much love everything about this last pic…from the tree to the ornaments to the roman shades to the b&w artwork to the white washed beams to the sofa and lastly the adorable faux fur tree skirt.
