Christmas Tree Skirt Roundup - Holiday Crafting Support Group

Wednesday, November 14, 2012


my poor christmas tree has been ahem....naked shall we say for the last 5 christmases.  i've been shamefully using an old white receiving blanket draped around the bottom of the tree.  it's a sad boring excuse of a tree skirt and i admit i hate putting it there every year.  so this year i've decided to "try" to get one made.  no pressure...just adding it to my would love to have done this holiday season list.

after reading a comment on last week's holiday crafting support group post requesting a christmas tree skirt roundup i thought "aha...now that's exactly what i need to roundup".  so here you go!  i got out my lasso and rounded up what i think are some spiffy and purdy christmas tree skirts.  you've got quilted, pieced, felt, no sewing, knitted and crocheted tree skirts.  have fun & most of all i hope you get inspired!  also, if you  know of an awesome tutorial of your own or one you love please leave a link to it in the comments below and i'll add it to the "your faves" section of this post! alrighty...go pour yourself a nice big glass of (spiked) egg nog and let's get crafty!

  1. So I once made a tree skirt in high school. It was part of my sewing home ec class and I'm sure my mother still has it. The thing is as much as I love looking at tree skirts the appeal of actually having one is lost on me. Perhaps it's because we use a fake tree (family allergies) or because I have so many kids that if I were to put a pretty thing under that which they are forbidden to touch would be like telling me not to buy anything in a fabric store.

    Still the round up is delightful and if I ever decide that I really must have one I think I'd make that no-sew ruffle one. It is super pretty :)

  2. I would LOVE to make a tree skirt - all the ones we currently have always seem so short to me. It's like it's barely enough to cover the tree stand, and hardly any of the tree skirt is on the floor surrounding the tree. And forget about putting presents on it! I'd like it big enough to actually put my train on. Hmmm...maybe a new tree skirt pattern coming up? :)

  7. I don't have a tutorial or anything, but I paid a gal who had a lot of experience sewing with fancy fabrics to make the skirt of my wedding gown into a Christmas tree skirt so I can enjoy it every year. My favorite!

  9. Thanks for the roundup! I just made a scalloped felt tree skirt like the one in the roundup, but mine's much smaller (table-top tree) and it's multi-colored!
