Mini Felt Tree Skirt (Mini-Tree Advent Calendar Project)


What Mini-Tree Advent Calendar would be complete without a tree skirt? This skirt is most easily made with hot glue rather than craft glue, especially when attaching the rickrack to the curve of the skirt.

Things you’ll need:
2 – felt squares
Sewing pencil
Scissors
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Rick rack
Plate or bowl

Optional:
Spray glue
glitter

Things to do:
1. Lay the two pieces of felt side by side tightly so that the edges touch all the way down.
2. Center the bowl or plate over them so that the center seam in the fabric is at the center of the bowl. Trace around it with the sewing pencil.

3. Cut out the two circle halves. Find the center of each half circle and make a 1-inch cut in from the flat edge.
4. Push the two circle halves together along the flat edges. Glue a piece of rick rack, approximately 1/3 the diameter of the circle, along the seam to close one side part way up.

5. On the side of the circle opposite the joined section, glue a piece of rick rack the same length along one side of the split to mimic the joined section. Split the remaining area into quarters and add lengths of rickrack evenly around the skirt.
6. Optionally, you can lightly spray the tree skirt with glue and then dust with glitter. You don’t want to make the fabric stiff, just spray enough to lightly glitter your tree skirt.

7. Slip the skirt, using the open section for access, around the trunk of the tree.
