7. Ruffled Tree Skirt by Sew Much Ado

Is your tree still looking a little bare? This Ruffled Tree Skirt is the remedy! Grab a few of your favorite fabrics, and you’ll have a completely custom and unique tree skirt.

By using woven fabrics, the raw edges of the fabric will naturally fray, creating a lovely shabby chic look! As an alternative, you could also use non-woven fabrics (felt, knit, etc) for non-frayed edges. Another alternative is to sub the glue gun for your sewing machine if you’d prefer, and also finish the raw edges with your sewing machine/serger for a cleaner look.
