August 17, 2007, Newsletter Issue #77: Make a Memento Out of That Christmas Skirt

Tip of the Week

Why not transform a Christmas tree skirt into a great family project? Buy a simple one-colored skirt, lay it out, and let the whole family paint patterns, sign it, and date it. Before you get started, however, here are some things to keep in mind: Use fabrics that won't run or ravel like fleece, felt, or stretch velvet. Use acrylic craft paint instead of fabric paint, which can be a pain to get off of skin. Don't dwell on mistakes. First of all the skirt will be under the tree and hardly visible. Secondly, all of those little errors will be mementos, year after year.
