How to Make a No-Sew Ruffle Christmas Tree Skirt. Use a glue gun and strips of fabric for this handmade tree skirt. Easy DIY Craft Tutorial Idea.
Do you love Christmas too? I absolutely love Christmas and am even listening to Christmas music as I write this post.
Last weekend my sisters and my mom got together for a craft day. Oh, how I love our family craft days.
My sister Carla worked on the baby booties that she sells. They are so cute!
My sister Tracy also worked on a Christmas Tree Skirt. She created her pattern from scratch with her Silhouette software. She is a pretty smart cookie!
My Mom was crocheting a scarf. She is pretty talented too even though she won’t admit it.
I wanted to make a Christmas Tree Skirt and found this little beauty on Pinterest. This one is made by Puttin’ on the G.R.I.T.S.
I love all of the ruffles and the best part is, it is NO SEW! I love those two little words. AND I could use my UGLY Tree skirt as the base and hot glue my ruffles onto that. Perfect!

How to Make a No-Sew Ruffle Christmas Tree Skirt
Before you begin, the fun part is picking your fabric! When I went to the fabric store I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use burlap, muslin, satin, cotton, or a combination. Then I found this fun chevron canvas fabric at Hobby Lobby and I knew right away it was going to be my Christmas Tree Skirt!
Cut the fabric into 3 inch wide strips. I found it easiest to work on the floor but make sure everything you need is within arms reach.
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. I alternated colors the colors of chevron fabric but if you are using one solid color you don’t need to worry about that.

Here is the finished No-Sew Christmas Tree Skirt! I think this is a huge improvement from the old ugly one we were using.
