How to Make A Christmas Tree Skirt

Last year I saw a wool felt Christmas tree skirt on the Magnolia site and I thought it might be fun to make one myself!

So 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.  They also come in heart shapes and they also sell all of the supplies you need to make wool felt garlands (which I am also making right now).

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.

Measure around the perimeter of the circle and mark every 3″ win a straight pin.

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

Continue the running stitch all the way around the Christmas tree skirt.

You can also make a Christmas tree skirt out of non-wool felt and already made pom poms. JOANN has white felt 72″ fabric by the yard. You need about one and a half yards of 72″ fabric. It’s only $4.00 a yard. They also sell Maker’s Holiday Craft Yarn Pom Poms, 25 in a container, for under three dollars! This is a much less expensive option. And worth the effort!
