Make a beautiful Handmade Christmas Tree Skirt with fabric and a glue gun! Below is the complete step by step tutorial.
Do you love Christmas too? I absolutely love Christmas and am even listening to Christmas music as I write this post.
This year I decided to update our old and ugly Christmas Tree Skirt into a beautiful ruffled tree skirt!
It was actually very easy to do and no sewing machine needed. A hot glue gun is used and I love the results!
The inspiration for my skirt came from this Christmas Tree Skirt I found on Pinterest. This skirt was made by Puttin On The Grits.

Supplies You’ll Need to Create this Project:

- Old Tree Skirt as the base
- 4 yards of Fabric (more or less depending on the size of your tree skirt)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glue Gun Sticks
This is the old tree skirt we used as the base for our new ruffle Christmas tree skirt. It is very plain and not very cute.
This is the fabric we chose for the skirt. I am a sucker for chevron and the green and red will make a great Christmas skirt.
How to Make an Easy Christmas Tree Skirt:
I found it easiest to work on the floor but make sure everything needed is within arms reach.
Cut the fabric into 3 inch wide strips.
Start at the outer edge of the skirt. Apply a small line (about 1 1/2 inches) of hot glue. Lay the top edge of the fabric along the line of glue. Take about 1 inch of fabric and fold it over the previous section and add a dot of glue to secure in place.
Repeat around the entire skirt. Alternate the colors of chevron fabric but if you are using one solid color you don’t need to worry about alternating patterns.
Here is the finished Christmas Tree Skirt! Isn’t this a huge improvement from the old ugly one we were using?
When you make this Ruffle Christmas Skirt please share a photo! We would love to see it.
