How to Make A White Christmas Tree Skirt

A few years ago, I saw a white Christmas tree skirt made of wool felt on the Magnolia site and so I decided to make one myself!

Today I’m sharing how to make a white Christmas tree skirt with pom poms. This is the perfect, simple way to dress up your tree… and for a fraction of the price!

I found all of the supplies at my favorite Felt Store Benzie or the Etsy shop Crafty Wool Felt. Both sell wool felt by the yard and the most wonderful felt balls! I think Benzie’s prices might be a bit less.  Amazon also sells wool felt and pom poms, so be sure to check out all three resources to find your supplies!

I love the look of a white Christmas tree skirt. Once the gifts are wrapped and placed under the tree, the cute pom poms will peek out from underneath the gifts!

How to Make a Christmas Tree Skirt

What You Will Need:
  • 1 1/2 yds. wool felt (if 54″ wide) If 36″ wide, purchase two yards.
  • 50 wool felt balls
  • Cotton off-white twine

Cut a 46″ round circle from the felt. If your fabric isn’t wide enough, cut 9″ from the end of the fabric and hand sew each strip to each edge to make the fabric wider.

Once you have completed the stitching, mark three locations at 6″ apart for the closures. Sew three strips of felt to make the loops and attach the felt wool balls.
