Oh Christmas Tree...pinterest style!

If you are not familiar with Pinterest, and don't want to be...skip this post!

I made a board on Pinterest a while back for Christmas decor inspiration.  When I got my tree out on Sunday and opened last years (last minute) tree skirt, I instantly had a flashback to this pin.

I made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby to grab the burlap (and used a 40% off coupon-$8 spent), pulled out my glue gun and sticks and got to work.  I only did one color and only used burlap, and I love the way it looks.

I'm embarrassed to show you the before...I was in a pinch last year.

But I think I upgraded with this little ditty!

I won't took about 39,423,423 glue sticks and a good 2.5 hours of labor, but for $8 I don't think I can find one as cute.  Try it...


  1. Katie!! That is precious!! Love that you are so crafty. ;)

  2. can you send me the link to make this? i love it and it's exactly what i was wanting to do for our tree!!! isn't burlap the greatest!?!?!?

  3. omg. I'm making the same tree skirt! I say making because i made the stips two inches wide and i don't know if i'll ever be done. I've already burned two fingers so badly i'm missing flesh....ugh. your's looks great though! tree skirt ENVY!
