No Sew Ribbon Christmas Tree Skirt created with decorative ribbon, fabric and a hot glue gun. Easy and fast to create with absolutely no sewing. (This is a post from last year. I’m sharing it with you again because it’s one of my favorite projects!)
Our Christmas tree is going to be very bright this year and so I figured it will need a new tree skirt that will fit the new colors.
I was searching for fabric to make my own, however no luck finding what I wanted. One day I was at Walmart in the Christmas section and came across some gorgeous decorative ribbon. When I saw them, I told myself ”Gosh, I wish I could find fabric like that”… and then walked away. As I’m in the next row… it dawn’s on me… ”Wait a minute… I could use ribbon instead of fabric!! It would save me from needing to cut strips!!” GENIUS!! So I grabbed all the ribbon I liked (2.5” wide) and went on my merry way.
When I got home I pulled out one of my old tree skirts, which was bright red. I figured since I hadn’t used it in years, why not just hot glue the ribbon onto that! I sat down and started unrolling my ribbon… and then I noticed something… the ribbon was sheer ribbon… which meant I could not hot glue it onto the red tree skirt because you would see the red through it… DARN!!
I pulled out my fabric bin and came across a light pink minky dot fabric I had. I figured it was better to see pink through the ribbon than red.
I was planning on putting ribbon all the way up the skirt, but once I got started I noticed that the combination of ribbon and that pink fabric looked AMAZING together… and because of that.. I did not put the ribbon all the way up!
This is how I made this SUPER easy NO SEW Ribbon Christmas Tree Skirt.
NO SEW RIBBON Christmas Tree Skirt
Decorative ribbon with wire
Old tree skirt
Step 1: Place the old tree skirt on top of the fabric. Step 2: Pin the fabric and the old tree skirt together. Step 3: Cut the fabric around the skirt leaving about 1” – 1.5” of fabric on the sides. Step 4: Use heat bond and iron to attach your fabric onto the old tree skirt (using the 1”-1.5” fabric on the sides). Step 5: Hot glue the top edge of your decorative ribbon onto the tree skirt. Continue doing this while you fold over your ribbon to give it a ruffle look until you have gone around the whole skirt. Step 6: Repeat Step 5 with the next ribbon by placing it just a bit higher than the previous ribbon (overlap it). Keep repeating this step until you are finished with all your ribbon.
And voilà.. you have yourself a gorgeous custom made ribbon tree skirt!!
What do you think??
I can’t wait to see how it looks when the tree is all setup!!
Have a FABULOUS day!!
