I basically followed the instructions on HGTV, but with a few of my own modifications:
-I used muslin instead of linen... cheaper!
-I used a little wider strips
-A couple days before I started making it, I found a plain white felty looking tree skirt at the dollarama that I used as a base, rather than make my own. At a only a dollar, I thought saving that step was worth it.
-Also, instead of forming the ruffles as I glued the material down, I sewed them on my sewing machine. This was an extra step at the beginning, but I felt that it made putting the end product together a lot easier.
I totally love this tree skirt! And I hope I continue to love it for the next couple of years, because it was very time consuming.
Here's the full view of the tree... no presents under it yet, though!
This ornament that one of my brothers gave me years ago fit in perfectly!
And last but not definitely not least, I had to hang this ornament, because, after all, this is the true reason that we celebrate Christmas.
