Today over on The Treetopia Blog I am sharing tons of glorious pictures of my black Halloween tree. Here on my blog I want to talk about my equally dreamy tree skirt. Duh, of course my Halloween tree has a Halloween tree skirt. Doesn’t yours?
My tree skirt design is based on the vintage Beistle honeycomb spiders crawling about on my black tree. They were just too amazing not to make as the focal point on my tree skirt.
The actual skirt was cut from black felt in yardage form. Make a large circle out of felt. Cut a slit in one side so that you can wrap the skirt around the base of your tree. Add a scalloped edge like I did if you are feeling really spicy.
Using craft felt and glue create your appliqué. You might want to use fabric paint for some of the details.
Strips of white felt were added to give the appearance of a spider web. Did I mention this entire thing is no-sew. Yup. If you can cut and glue, you can make a tree skirt. Check out the Christmas Tree Skirt I made. Also entirely no sew.
I’m so in love with my black Treetopia tree I can’t hardly wait to decorate it for Christmas! Be sure to check out all the pictures of the entire tree on the Treetopia blog. Also, head over to the DIY Network Blog to see pictures of my other Halloween trees.
