How can I create a truly special Christmas tree skirt?

Make a Memento Out of That Christmas Skirt

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.
