Ruffled Burlap Christmas Tree Skirt...

 Hi, Ladies!
Today, I wanted to "share" ORP's version of
a "Ruffled" Burlap Christmas Tree Skirt.
First off, I would like to say that I got this idea
from a website called..."Uncommon Designs".
 Trish & Bonnie's ruffled burlap Christmas tree
skirt is a "no sew" project.
So, if you don't sew you may want to hop on over
to their website for their "no sew" tutorial.

OK, let's get started!
Supplies Needed...
(1) 60" Round Burlap Tablecloth ($15.00 at Premier Burlap Boutique.com)
2 Yards Homespun Christmas Fabric
8 yds of Trim (I used a burlap ric-rac)

Start by folding your round tablecloth in half.
Using an 8 to 10" plate or lid, draw a "half" circle
on the center fold of your tablecloth, as shown in the photo below.
Now, draw a straight line, starting a the "A" to the edge of your tablecloth,
also shown in the photo below.
Cut the circle & straight line out.
The circle will be what fits around the base of your Christmas tree
& the line will be the opening of your Christmas tree skirt.
The photo below shows you what your Christmas tree skirt
will look like once it's laid out.

At this point you can bind the circle and edges of the opening
or you can skip the binding part.
For the binding I used 2 1/2" strips of the same
homespun Christmas fabric that I used for the ruffle.

Time to do some figuring...
Measure the circumference of your tablecloth
and double that number.
My 60" tablecloth was 180" in circumference.
I like lots of ruffles, so I "doubled" that number...360".
360" of fabric is what I will need to make my "ruffled" Christmas tree skirt.
If you don't like a lot of ruffles then you will need to lower that number
to like maybe 1 1/2 times the circumference of the tablecloth or 270 inches
or somewhere in between 270 & 360 inches.
Tear strips of the homespun Christmas fabric 6" wide.
You can use burlap if you prefer but you can't tear burlap, it
will need to be cut.
 Sew these strips together until you have reached the desired number of inches.
For me it was 360".
About an inch from the edge of the fabric run a gathering stitch.
I like to run two rows of gathering stitches just in case one breaks.
 
 Gather these ruffles until they fit the circumference of your tablecloth.
At this point you can either sew your ruffle to the tablecloth
or you can glue your ruffle to the tablecloth.

 I hid my gathering stitches by gluing some burlap
ric-rac trim on my ruffle.
I used this same trim to make ties for my Christmas tree skirt.
Walla...wasn't that "fun"?
I hope that your ruffled Christmas tree skirt will be a
"keepsake" for many Christmas's to come!

PS:  I will post a picture of my new "ruffled" Christmas tree
skirt all laid out under our tree, once I get our Christmas tree up
in a couple of weeks!
