Christmas Wonderful: No-Sew 10 Minute Tree Skirt

Do you elevate your Christmas tree? I always put my tree on a nice solid box to give it a little more height, plus it gives you so much more room to place those presents under it. That way your presents aren’t creeping out 6 feet into your room!

To cover up the tree base and box, I have a great no-sew, 10 minute tree skirt tutorial to share with you!

1. Once you’ve placed your tree on a sturdy box, you will need to cover your tree base with quilt batting(make sure it is fire resistant) and drape your twinkle lights over the
bottom tree branches. Make sure the mini lights are “cool” lights. These mini lights can create a lot of heat. This is very important!!
2. Cut tulle (fire resistant) to desired length. Measure from the ground to the bottom tree branch and double that amount.
3. Drape tulle over the top of the bottom tree branches.
4. Place presents or other decorative elements around base of tree.

    How many lights did you use? Or, in other words, how many strands of the cool lights are needed?
