It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving has already past and we are now well into this Christmas season. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and a lot of great food. I was so busy that I did not even take one picture. What kind of blogger am I?? My son did snap a quick picture right before we sat down to eat. I loved how pretty everything looked and really wished I had remembered to snap one. I hope everyone had as wonderful a day as we did.
I started with a yard of felt. Folded it in fourths and then following Martha Stewart's tutorial I cut the skirt out.
Once the skirt was cut out I cut 4 inch strips from the felt to add as a ruffle around the cut edge.
I gathered and hot glue all the way around.
For a little added something I hot glued a silver ribbon over the ruffle.
Be warned~when working with hot glue and felt this is what your fingers will look like, making it very difficult to take pictures.
Once that was completed I cut out multiple leaf pattern from gray felt, then glued them at the inside edge of the silver ribbon and ruffle.
Then I chose some silver glitter paint and
a snowflake stencil
and added some sparkly snowflakes to the tree skirt.
I am so happy with how it turned out.
Although a bit time consuming it is quite an easy tree skirt. I love the felt, so easy to work with and it created a soft backdrop for the glittery snowflakes.
The completed skirt
and under the tree.
Linking to these great parties.
