Heed this warning....DO NOT check out Pinterest unless you are ready to accept the addiction.
My latest find was this no-sew Christmas tree skirt.
Supplies included: old sheet (could use an old blanket or painters tarp), 2 yards linen, 3 yards burlap, hot glue gun, scissors and a yard stick.
I started with an old twin sheet; folded it, then folded it again. Then I cut it to make an oval (the original called for a circle, but I wanted more of an oval shape), I also cut the corner to make the inner circle. (Minus the cat when you create yours :) )
I then cut the linen and the burlap into 3 inch strips. Not an easy task with the burlap, so I had to lay it out across the entire floor and cut them one by one. I was able to fold the linen and cut 3" strips, a few at a time. I ended up with a pile of material (which clearly my cat AND dog loved!)
Then I warmed up the glue gun and began to fold the material:
I did a row of linen, then 2 rows of burlap (which was a little harder to fold, but certainly not impossible).
A couple of hours and a few burnt fingers later, here was the beautiful final product. Sorry I didn't take many pictures in the middle of the project...I got carried away.
And here it is under my tree:
The pictures do not do this skirt justice. It is really beautiful! I love it! Thank you Pinterest!!
