The Infamous Ruffled Tree Skirt

From the minute I saw Miss Mustard Seed's ruffled tree skirt, I knew I wanted to make one for myself.

Fast forward a year later, and I see it all over pinterest. I read quite a few of these bloggers posts. More than a few said it took 5-8 hours to do, the ruffles didn't glue down properly and they were overall unhappy with the process but happy with the end result.

I have to say, I totally disagree! It took 2 hours total and was super simple. I used a muslin like fabric, in a neutral colour and it glued down easily. Unlike the original tutorial, I used a dollar store felt tree skirt as the base, which saved me a step.

Here's the result:

It was hard to show you the ties, as they blend in with the skirt, but I used a pretty cream ribbon and it adds a nice finishing touch. 

This skirt is perfect for this pretty, flocked tree-I love it!
