One of my most treasured wedding gifts was from my Grandmother. She made my new husband and I our very first holiday decorations. It was such a clever gift since we were young and just starting out. We really didn’t have holiday decor, certainly nothing that matched. But, as the years have passed and our family has grown I have been wanting to update my holiday decor.
This year I decided to try making my own tree skirt using an old round tablecloth. I loved the red and white plaid table cloth as it was so I decided not to have ruffles go all the way up. I did want some ruffles and loved the idea of burlap since many of my ornaments are rustic. I then decided to add the ticking as the striping contrast pulls it all together.
Here is my step by step DIY Ruffled Tree Skirt tutorial. (I apologize for the dark photos– My basement work space is in need of a lighting makeover!)
