Top of the morning to ya! I’m having a wonderful Wednesday morning, hope you are too. I was looking through some old pictures and found this one of our first Christmas tree.
This was when we lived in our apartment. Ahh, I love those memories.
Today, I’m going to share a tutorial with you that I can’t fully lay claim to. I found this tutorial on Miss Mustard Seed’s blog and tried it for myself. I have never owned an official tree skirt before this year but have always used a Saree Joel bought me while he was in India. So, I super excited about this tree skirt and I have to say I think I created one of the cutest ruffle tree skirts San Marcos, Texas has ever seen! It reminds me of lingerie from the 1920′s! I do have to warn you if you plan on making a ruffle tree skirt set aside 3-4 hours because it is pretty time consuming.
I put my own spin on it, instead of using all one material like Linen, I alternated with burlap, lace and scraps of material I already had.
If you don’t have scraps of material and want inexpensive material, you can buy a twin size flat sheet from Wal-mart.
DECORATING TIP: Choose a color scheme for your tree and use that to determine the ornaments you use. Hang unconventional items like I did with an old spur or antique door hardware. I made sure these items kept with the style and color scheme for my tree.
