Beautiful Christmas Tree Skirts and Tutorials.
Tree Skirts Patterns
Everyone needs a tree skirt. This hub is about skirts you can make with patterns and tutorials. Some skirts are not hard to make. I made skirts years ago for our tree and for our kid's trees. Mine were just fabric, with fabric glue I added sparkles and Christmas cloth decals. They turned out pretty. They took some sewing, but they were fun to make. I always cut my circle for my tree skirts with my husband’s help. We folded our fabric in half and cut out a circle with a string attached to a pen or pencil.
When I made mine I also added a lace edge. You can add any kind of trim you would like or make your own trim for the edge and glue it on. I also used quilted fabric.
Use any kind of little add on items you want like buttons, charms, felt snowflakes, pom-poms, beads or the family name. Many items can be found in craft and sewing stores or make your own. Fabric paint can also be used to add designs on your skirt.
Your skirt only comes out at Christmas so if you don't want to sew it gluing will work fine. It wouldn't hurt to sew a little tack by hand onto each item you add then glue. I know with some items you won't be able to do this. The tack would make it more secure.
Below our daughter's friend made her tree skirt from old hunting pants. I think it looks very pretty reminds me of the country. It's always good to reuse and not waste anything you have.

Use a Old Wedding Gown, Braidsmaid's Dress or Prom Dress.
Bridesmaid or old wedding gowns also make pretty skirts for your trees. No one ever seems to wear a bridesmaid dress again, so why not put it to use for a skirt. Any skirt you might have and don't want especially if they're lace, cut up and turn into a tree skirt.
Also old table cloths, curtains, quilts and bedspreads can be used. If it's a round tablecloth, you're almost there. Just cut a slit up the tablecloth until you get to the middle then cut a circle in the center. You can finish it off by sewing a ribbon around the hole and down the slit, add hooks for closure.

We make blankets out of fleece every year, no sewing, easy, easy just tie the two fabrics together. Just like on this skirt. Our granddaughter wanted another blanket this year.
Skirts can also be put together with no sewing just by using iron on fabric tape, use fabric glue or hot glue.
You can make skirts from all kinds of fabric. Velvet, brocade, lace, cotton, muslin, oilcloth, felt, anything and everything. Make the skirt look modern or country. Burlap sacks make nice skirts. Decorations added to a skirt makes it look so festive.
You can also add family pictures to a skirt by printing on transfer paper and ironing onto your skirt or printing right on fabric and making the skirt from this.
Patterns for skirts can also be bought at the fabric store or anyplace which carries patterns like Simplicity or McCall's.

I finally dug out my own skirt. This is one of the skirts I made and this took sewing. I used quilted fabric so it didn't have to have a lining for the back. I added the lace and this is about all I did to it, cut and seamed together.
Below I showed the skirt under our tree. I made it big enough so lots of gifts could sit on top of it. Most of the time this where the cats slept.
