Even trees need skirts.

So I was looking through the Garnet Hill catalog the other day and I saw this and went a little nutso over it. A MUST HAVE, right? Well, no, not for $198. I mean, I don't even own a $198 skirt, and we must draw the line somewhere, mustn't we?

So, I made my own version (sorry for the crappy pictures - I can't figure out what's going on with the camera...)

So, I used that blizzard fleece from JoAnn's (ps: it's 50% off right now!) and made the base in a creamy color. Then I used four big ol brown buttons from my stash to fasten the two sides together.

The poinsettias took surprisingly little time to make - maybe three hours - and then I hot glued them to the base. And I love it!

Now if I could just get some presents wrapped to put on top of it...


  1. So cute!

    Hey, Mrs. Kvilhaug (I hope I spelled it right) when do we get to see some wedding pictures?

  2. Love, love your tree skirt! I love it when you can recreate designer things for much less!
