Some of you remember this post where I stated that I was going to attempt to make my own version of the Ballard Designs Burlap Tree Skirt. Well I did it...and I thought it turned out really well.
I know this post would have been much better to have done BEFORE Christmas, but I got busy and didn't get around to it. Sorry!
I did not take pictures as I went, but I used this series of videos and it was very helpful:
We have a smaller tree so I wanted my skirt to have a 36 inch diameter. For that size these are the supplies I used:
2 yards of ivory burlap (probably could have used a little less, but I wanted to be sure I had enough)
2 yards of blackout lining
3 1/4 yards of ivory fringe
I don't think she talks about this in the video, but to determine the amount of fringe you need take your diameter (36 inches for me) and multiply it by 3.2 (36 x 3.2= 115.2 inches). Then convert to yards.
I was able to buy all of the supplies from Joann's either on sale for 50% off or with a 40% off coupon. In all I think I spent about $27.
