No Sew Ribbon Christmas Tree Skirt!!!

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!)

No Sew Ribbon Tree Skirt

I’ve been seeing so many cute Christmas Tree Skirts everywhere, I even featured The Crafty Blog Stalker’s No Sew Ruffle Tree Skirt a few weeks ago on From Dream To Reality.

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
Heat bond
Hot glue

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.

    This is the greatest idea ever, and will make the project so much easier than the other tutorials I’ve seen. I absolutely LOVE the colors and how it turned out. Confession: I’ve actually been using one of those ratty Walmart fuzzy red skirts for the last 2 years, so it’s beyond time to trash it. I’ve got to try this and am so glad you shared. Love your creativity girl-you rock!

    Christine, you tree skirt came out so cute. You are braver then I am with all that ribbon. I just hot glued some ribbon for a craft I’m blogging about soon and burnt the daylights out of my fingers.

    Stop on over and visit, starting Saturday I’m have a blog social hop and would love for you to join.

    Have a crazy beautiful weekend!

    I am in desperate need of a cute tree skirt, and I can never find one in stores that I like, or that match my tree’s style, and this thing would be fantastic! I am going to have to make this!! I’m pinning this to my Christmas board and am now following you!

    Merry Christmas!

    Such a great idea! We need a tree skirt – I haven’t used one on our tree for years now and it never looks quite finished. I love this no-sew version!! Man, glue guns are the best! ;)
