Crafty Christmas Tree Skirt - O Christmas Tree!


The countdown is now at 12 days until Christmas and I just bought my Christmas tree! I was surfing around looking for some crafty projects that I can do with the kids to decorate. We have a lot of heirloom ornaments and have even hung some of the 2007 crafty ones. We reused last year's star and lighting. But what we needed to really tie everything together was a great new tree skirt. The old one just had to go. So why not create one with the family that we can use and reuse for years to come? Here are a couple of Christmas tree skirts I am considering - I know, I'd better hurry! :)

Here's an heirloom tree skirt that is easy to make for the whole family and will leaving lasting impressions. I found it on craftster.org:

A couple years ago I made one and thought I'd be very chic and different by making a square one--I soon realized why they're not square, they're horrible to keep straight and pretty that way.

But I hand quilted it so I'm not ready to ever give it up.

I like your creative blog! I especially liked your Creative Centerpieces in November. Do you have Creative Centerpieces for December too? Maybe it's here and I just can't find it.
Keep up the good work!
