No Sew Tablecloth Tree Skirt

In case you didn’t realize…

…there are 14 days until Christmas!

14…days…people!

This is about the time each year, that I begin rethinking my…“Oh, I’d Love to Make That” listand begin coming up with a “Plan B” list…and an “I Can Just Drop That” list.

When I start making the “Oh, I’d Love to Make That” list in about October, I just know that this is the year that I’m going to have record amounts of time!

{Have I ever mentioned that time management is not one of my strengths. :)}

So, even though I totally planned on making the cutest ruffled burlap tree skirt you’d ever seen…

…I ran out of time.

Sometimes “Plan B” is even better!

This is the 2nd year that Daisy has completely decorated her tree herself…

Christmas Tree with Neutral Decorations

…with handmade ornaments… Sheet Music Banner

…and sheet music garland.

Super cute in her newly decorated room.

Chevron Bow Tree Topper

She did ask for a little help with the bow on top.

{And, if you’re needing help, I’ll show you how to make one HERE.}

When I brought her the bow, I opened my big mouth and said, “This tree would be so super cute with a burlap ruffled tree skirt!”

Fast forward 2 weeks later, and I’ve had no time.

But, an epiphany instead…

What if we found a double cute tablecloth!?

One that was so the style of your tree?!

And, what if we just draped it around the bottom of the tree!?

Perfect!

I found this tablecloth at LinenTablecloth.com.

{It is a 85″ rectangle.}

And, Daisy agrees that it makes the perfect skirt for her tree. :)

Life to the full!

LinenTablecloth.com did provide the tablecloth for this project, but all opinions are totally mine!

  1. Your tree and Christmas decorations are SO beautiful Melissa! I used a big piece of burlap around the base of my tree this year. It works great!

  2. It all looks so very beautiful, Melissa. You did a great job. I start that “I need to do” list in October, too. Mine is still attached to the tablet I wrote it on- Guess I will save it for next year- xo Diana

  3. It’s perfect!!

  4. I get a tad fed up with all the “Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays” controversy and such this time of year. I mean, I try to be aware of others and I DO try to be nice and all, but I draw the line at the person on TV who suggested that “skirts” are not politically correct for trees these days followed by their suggestion of a “Christmas Tree Pant Suit”. That person needs to be slapped upside their egg-noggin.

    • A Christmas Pants Suit!? Really!? How do you think this stuff up!? You make me laugh David Skidmore :)

  5. Love it! I think her tree is beautiful ~ great job!

    I haven’t had a computer working so haven’t been able to stop by. Using the one in the business center when I can.

  6. Everything looks so cute! I really like your tree up against the chalkboard wall!
