A stunning cable-knit throw skirts the base of this Christmas tree like a soft blanket of snow. Easy to stitch, the top is cut in one piece with the cable textures running parallel across the entire shape -- no piecing required and no need to match patterns. Polish off the look with pretty poinsettias.
Snowflakes are an iconic symbol that indicate winter's arrival, and during the holidays, the motif is available in abundance throughout stores. For this tree skirt, cut a desired-size circle from white felt fabric with a slit for the tree. Collect gray and blue felt snowflakes in all shapes and sizes and hot-glue them to the white felt. Embrace the wintry theme by adding snowflake embellishments around the house.
Ring your evergreen with colorful circles in this super-easy tree skirt. Cut a large circle from green felt with a slit for the tree. Decorate the edges in a festive ball ornament theme by adding various-size felt circles in shades of red and green.
Tie together your Christmas color scheme with this Christmas tree skirt made from richly colored ribbons. Cut varying lengths of thick, wire-edge ribbon in different colors, then attach them to the tree trunk with florist’s wire.
Keep your under-the-tree decorations simple and classy. Pair two burlap shapes for a rustic tree skirt that works with a variety of decorating colors. All you have to do is cut the burlap, leaving the raw edges intact, and attach the two pieces together using a single topstitch.
This Christmas tree skirt bears a merry message applied with custom-cut stencils and black fabric paint on linen. Machine-stitch the outside of the linen-stenciled circle together with a base tree skirt circle cut of matelasse fabric. Then, weave-stitch the fabrics together on the inner circle of the linen fabric.
This handmade felt Christmas tree skirt is so fun to make (and festive under the tree), you won’t want to cover it up with gifts. For the skirt, cut a desired-size fabric circle with a slit for the tree. Cut holly leaves in two colors and sizes (about 24 and 26 inches) of felt and red felt circles for berries. Hand-stitch long, straight stitches with embroidery floss down the center of the leaves. Glue on leaves and red berries.
Give your nontraditional Christmas tree a unique tree skirt. Glue wedges of colorful textured felt or fabric to a circular base for an instant pop of color and festive flair. Trim the felt or fabric seams with different colors and sizes of rickrack. Finish the outer edge by gluing on a pom-pom fringe.
