A No Sew Ruffled Tree Skirt For Chelsea

I made this no sew ,Easy , ruffled tree skirt for my daughter's tree...Last week I helped my daughter decorate for Christmas at her new house. One of her trees was white so we used book page ornaments , snowflakes , and ball ornaments in aqua , light blue and silver. We also used burlap woven through the tree for a garland. I used white fabric with aqua snowflakes to make the tree skirt..

 
It looks perfect under her tree!


To make the skirt , I used one of my purchased tree skirts for a guide to cut felt for the base. I then ripped the white fabric into about 4 inch strips. Start at the bottom edge and using hot glue make a line of hot glue about 2 inches up on the felt and start putting down the strips pushing it together in the glue as you go to make the ruffles. Keep going and overlapping the rows until you get to the top .




 If you make your rows closer together it looks more ruffly , also you can use different colors for each row or make the strips smaller or bigger.. this is the 5th ruffled skirt I have made.. I just love them under the trees! you can see them here and here and here !
