Christmas Tree Skirt

Stumble Upon Toolbar


This is my Christmas tree skirt. I started it when I just had 2 small children. Every year I trace each child's hand onto a piece of felt. Then I stitch the name and year and sew it with a blanket stitch onto the skirt. One of these days I'll need to add another layer to the outside edge to have room for more hand prints. I love to look back at how each child has grown.

Go to Rocks in my Dryer for more great holiday ideas.

What a precious heirloom you are creating, your kids will one day fight over who gets it!

Oh my goodness, I love this idea! My poor tree has no skirt, and I have been wondering what I could do. Thanks for passing this on!

Very creative! I like it a lot. Is the white part felt or batting or flannel or what?

The whole thing is felt. I used a cup to trace the scallops along the edge.
