Drop Cloth Tree Skirt

I have seen so many beautiful variations of DIY tree skirts on Pinterest.  I had about twenty minutes to burn during nap time the other day, and I decided to tackle my own version.

I had purchased a drop cloth several months ago at Lowe's hoping to come up with a project later one. I simply cut it in the shape of a square. I know most are round, but I am awful at cutting circles.  I then used some fabric in a similar color to crate a ruffled edge using a glue gun.  Then I simply added some self adhesive stars around the top of the ruffle.  All together this project cost around ten dollars.  Pretty inexpensive and easy to make.  I just used some velcro to attach it together in the back of the tree.

Now the bottom of my tree does not look so bare.  I also wanted to something that did not get covered in the hair from my yellow lab that seems to go everywhere even when vacuuming all the time.  This is the perfect match for his color so I will not even notice. See ~

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh it's very pretty Megan, pretty ruffle and I like the idea of self adhesive, you can swap it when you like.

  2. I so hear you on the dog on dog hair!! I love that skirt- perfect Megan!

  3. Not sure which is cuter the dog or the tree skirt. I think by a *hair* the dog wins :).

    What a great tree skirt and you made it yourself!!! Really well done.

  4. Looks great Megan! Our cat likes to lay on our tree skirt (like we put it there for her or something!) but I never thought about matching the colour of the skirt so it wouldn't bother me as much. Great thinking on your part!


  5. It's gorgeous Megan! Wish I could get on the band wagon with sewing! ( and I love drop cloths and what everyone does with them )

  6. Hooray for dropcloth crafts! And for naptime crafts! A win-win - I love it.

  7. That's funny! I often find myself looking for fabric that will match out cat's fur colors! Your dropcloth tree skirt is lovely, and I like that it is a quick project to put together. Nice to hear from you today, and glad you liked my holiday door basket--thank you!

  8. I love those ruffles! Not sewing? Even better, I Love it!

  9. I love drop cloth, it's my go to fabric. We put up our Xmas tree last night & I was just saying I wanted a drop cloth tree skirt but didn't think I would have the time to make it. After seeing yours I think I could spare 20 min. Thanks for sharing! Dee from My Painted Stuff.

  10. I have a drop cloth and it is begging to be made into a tree skirt. This is so pretty!
