Felt Tree Skirt Instructions

  1. Take a piece of wool felt and cut it into a pretty scalloped tree skirt.To dress it  up a bit, you can use some green vines, holly leaves, and white berries.
     
  2. After cutting the scalloped tree skirt, free-hand cut some holly leaves out of green felt. If you're not comfortable free-hand cutting, try die-cutting your image at your local scrapbook store, or find some clip art that you can print out, cut out, and trace on your felt.
     
  3. Use a piece of chalk to lightly outline the vines around the edge of the skirt, laying the leaves and buttons along it to make sure it looks even.

  4. Start stitching. It took me about 5 hours to stitch all the vines, leaves, and buttons on. I guess that's why tree skirts are so expensive! I did use long stitches to make it go a little faster, and only used three stitches to sew on the leaves (rather than stitching around the edges like I had planned).

  5. My next step is only for all you other crazy crafter out there who love to add tiny details that probably don't need to be added. But I really thought the scallops needed a little white french knot in the middle of each one. This added another 2 hours to my skirt.

  6. My last step was another unnecessary one. I added ribbon ties to keep the skirt in place. I think it would have stayed put without them, but I couldn't help the cuteness factor once again! I cut six pieces of ribbon, each about 2 feet long.
     
  7. Then I doubled-folded the ends over and sewed them down to keep them from fraying. You could also use Fray-Check.
     
  8. Then I sewed two pieces across from each other and tied them in a bow.
     
  9. Repeat with the other two sets of ribbon, spaced out evenly. I really just eye-balled the whole thing since the ribbons are going to be in the back and hardly seen at all!

  10. And voila! Two days later it's finally finished! I'm going to have to use this for at least 10 years to make all that work worth it, but I do love it!
