Have you noticed that most tree skirts don’t fit today’s large Christmas trees? When my tree skirt was damaged, I could not find a new one large enough for my tree. And my tree isn’t even 8 feet tall! Of course like any crafter would, I made a new one. This DIY Christmas Tree Skirt is simple, affordable, and easy to make. No sewing involved!
Kunin’s Eco-Fi® Premiumfelt™ is the perfect fabric for any Christmas tree skirt because it is durable, washable, and is available in an array of brigh, festive colors. For this project you’ll need two yards of felt. For the holidays, it’s a good idea to stock up on bolts of Kunin Eco-Fi® Premiumfelt™.

1. Fold the felt in half to form an approximately 36” square, four layers thick.
2. Pin one end of the twine to the corner where all the folds meet.
3. Attach a marker to the other end of the twine, about 36” from the pin.
4. Draw a curved line with the marker onto the fabric, pulling the marker taut away from the pin to create a compass.
5. Cut the felt along the curve made by the marker.
6. Remove the pin, marker, and twine.
7. Cut a concentric circle at the folded end of the felt, about 8” deep. This will create a donut shape in the felt.
8. Cut along one of the folded creases in the felt to make an opening.
9. Slip the opening around the bottom of the Christmas tree and position the felt tree skirt so that the smaller circle is centered on the base of the tree.
The felt is great at catching pine needles, glitter, and tinsel. Standing on the felt to hold it down, clean the tree skirt by vacuuming.
You can make the tree skirt fancier by gluing on trims and pompoms, adding glitter accents, or sewing on felt appliques.
