Christmas Tree Skirt

Lately I've been finding all sorts of awesome ideas on Pinterest. For Christmas I decided to make a ruffled linen Christmas tree skirt for my sister. Here is the finished product:



I had such a hard time giving it to her on Thanksgiving! I love it! I made it 60" wide and it used 6 yards of linen! It was a really fun project!

Re: Christmas Tree Skirt

Thanks everyone! Here is the tutorial I used although I decided to make it more durable and sew it. I cut my strips of linen and then ruffled them with my ruffling foot on the machine, pinned them onto my canvas base, and then sewed the linen on. It still has the unfinished edge but since it is all stitched together it should last for years to come.
