Tree skirt.

It’s a very felt-y Christmas this year. I used the leftover hot pink felt I had from my jewelry box project and whipped up a skirt for my tree; then I cut out bright green reindeer to prance around the border. If I can pat myself on the back for a moment, several hours of meticulously cutting out santa’s favorite woodland creature was well worth it, look how cute it turned out:

More crafts later,I still have to share my felt garland project!

    LOVE! question: Did you just lay it over the tree stand before putting in the tree, or does it fasten some how in the back?

    It’s not fastened, but I left a slit in the back so I can easily pull it up to water the tree

    HOLY COW! This is amazing!! I NEED to know how you cut out the right shaped circle!! I have been dying to make a tree skirt for my tree, but have been lost when it comes to cutting out such a huge circle. Did you use a pattern?

    And a HUGE pat on the back for you for cutting out all those tiny reindeer- I love love love this!

    I just folded the felt into a square and free-hand cut the circle. It took a little trimming, but it turned out ok!

    The hand made tree skirt adds such an original touch to your tree. What a perfect way to add a homemade surprise to any “themed” tree too. So creative!
    Thanks for sharing, and happy felting!

    Just copied your adorable tree skirt, mine turned out super cute. I used a glitter red felt and lime green and added 3 holly with lime green leaves and pink berries! Thanks for the idea girl!

    To make a perfect circle cut a piece of string, tie it to a piece of chalk or pencil or whatever and then hold it in middle of the folded in half fabric and draw a half circle as far as the string reaches from edge to edge! Happy sewing 😉
