Ok…I am breaking the bank on the first day. Sorry. This project actually cost me $5.98 for the drop cloth, I had everything else. But, I promise I will make up the 98 cents…..next time!
The inspiration for this tree skirt came from this Pottery Barn pillow which I think is darling and the drop cloth idea from Miss Mustard Seed. Although I thought hers ruffle tree skirt was a drop cloth–it’s not, it’s linen–that was my failure to read
The other funny thing is I had remembered the pillow wrong and thought that the holly leaves were white on the oatmeal linen. Add to that this Christmas tree skirt that I saw last year (and took me forever to find again)….so I guess it really came from my mixed-up mind!
If you want to make one, here’s what you need to do.
An afternoon’s worth of work….and a Christmas tree skirt that didn’t cost $100 and will match any color scheme. Yippee.
