Another Pinterest Craft... a Ruffled Tree Skirt

The No-Sew Ruffled Tree Skirt circulated all over Pinterest this month.  So beautiful!!  And so darn easy!!!

I knew I needed it.  Here's the original from HGTV

I don't sew.  

So, if I can do this, you can do this!

First you take a painter's cloth.  I think I used 4x5'.  I folded it half, then in half, then in half to make a triangle/wedge.   At that point, I used a length of string to draw an arc and cut the tarp to make a circle.  I cut a small hole in the middle and a slash down one radius.  Then I found cheap muslin at Hobby Lobby.

I cut the muslin into 2-3" strips.  Then the tedious, but easy, part came. 

You gather the muslin and secure with hot glue till you have all the cloth covered with ruffles.  

So beautiful!

Our new tree skirt.  It took about 2 hours to fully complete, but it was SO worth it!!!
