No Sew Christmas Tree Skirt
Good quality Christmas tree skirts can be very costly and many people would rather make their own. But if you don’t sew you may wonder how you can create one. This no-sew skirt is the ideal solution. Using fleece for the project eliminates the need for hemming the edges. Pretty ribbon joins the four pieces and adds a decorative, colorful accent. I’ve painted mine with pine cones but you can easily add any holiday images using stencils and paint.
COVER EXPOSED AREAS TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL OVER SPRAY. ALLOW PAINT TO DRY BETWEEN STEPS.
step 8 - The Stencil
Print out one copy of the pine cone stencil on card stock. Flip the image horizontally and print out one copy.
Using scissors or a craft knife, remove the black areas of the stencils.
Spray a light coat of repositionable adhesive on the backside of each stencil. Applying too heavy a coat will result in problems removing the card stock from the fuzzy surface of the fleece fabric.
Keep the long ribbon ends from fraying by painting a line of glue or Fray Check on the edges.
Wash the fleece fabric before painting. Do not use fabric softener.
