This is so easy, I'm almost embarrassed to post it.Yet, I work today, so here we are.
I use gorgeous tulle from my BFF as a tree skirt each year, and this year I tried splitting it between our two Christmas trees. You see, we have one massive, splendid, coordinated tree... and then we have one small, personal, not necessarily gorgeous tree. The latter holds all of the sweet ornaments that have been given to and made for us throughout the years. One tree has the purpose of being color coordinated, the other of being sentimental... "and never the twain shall meet".

I have a bunch of leftover tablecloths in shades of pink as well as damask from our wedding. I haven't really found a ton of uses for them, so I've decided to cut one up for Christmas decor this year. You can see how I used it yesterday by clicking here. (1) I laid it out on the floor and decided how large I wanted the circumference to be. Once you've figured that out, (2) cut your fabric into a square that would accommodate the correct circle inside.

(5) Open it up and fold it in half. Cut HALFWAY up of the folded edge and then cut out a small half circle shape (to wrap around the base of your tree. You're done! You can either hem the skirt by sewing, use fray check or hot glue a hem down. I did nothing. My fabric allowed for that ;)

I hope you have an incredible day! Don't forget to take a few minutes to slow down and enjoy Christmas today. The season just goes by so quickly in all of the hustle and bustle of preparing for the big day. As always, thanks for reading!
