WFMW – Easy Christmas Tree Skirt

A couple of years ago I desperately needed a new Christmas Tree skirt but wasn’t finding anything I really liked. It was either too cutesy or too glam. Until I stumbled on a really pretty round Christmas tablecloth – simple white with gold stars.

I folded it into quarters (like a big triangle) and cut about 2 or 3 inches off the point. Unfold, cut from the center to the edge and tah dah, new tree skirt. If you sew you can hem the edges really quick or use some no-sew fuse tape and an iron.
