Whatever Blows Your Skirt Up

In celebration of the Christmas Season, and the fact that it is December (OMG how is it already December??), I decided I would make the world's most fantastic Christmas tree skirt. (OK, so maybe it isn't the world's most fantastic, but I think it pretty much rocks.)

I have been an avid follower of Miss Mustard Seed for some time now. If you have not read her blog you should start. She is basically who I want to be creatively (a combo of her and Mandi from Vintage Revivals ). She is me, 10 years from now... although, I am pretty sure she isn't 10 years older then me so, hopefully she is me 5 years from now! I can always play catch up:)

ANY WHO, she made this amazing tutorial on this skirt.  I won't even try to explain because her tutorial was perfect so if you are interested in making it just check it out here.  She also writes for (the girl is amazing) as you can see from that link.

Well, the tutorial was perfect and I was able to pull it off.  What do you guys think?

I seriously couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

P.S.  How cute is Luci playing in the snow!  She calls it "No".  SO CUTE!


  1. I want to make one of these too! I just haven't gotten around to it yet, lol. Ah, I love ruffles. Hopefully my husband doesn't kill me for putting ruffles under the tree. Though, if I don't point it out, maybe he won't even notice. When I switched my craft space and dining space, he didn't even notice at first. All I could think was "really?!" Haha.

  2. You did a great job! The skirt is as beautiful as Marian's. (Visiting from TT&J) Have a great day!~ KIM

  3. Your tree skirt is fantastic! And I LOVE the Luci Rae photos--especially the bottom one. She is such a cutie!

  4. Looks amazing! Very well done!

  5. I love this ruffled tree skirt! I think you did a wonderful job!
