Hi.

Welcome to my birdie shoots. Please enjoy my daily musings of fashion,
beauty, and of course, the occasional
cocktail.





I couldn't help but be way too enthusiastic about creating a board on Pinterest for holiday decorations. When I saw this ruffled tree skirt I wasn't prepared to see "DIY" next to it. I thought to myself {Really?!?!} and I knew if the only thing involved was a glue gun then I had to do it!




{My "mini" version of the ruffled tree skirt, I added fur around the top to hide the ugly plastic tree base. I also made my skirt to fit a half table that the tree sits on.}


It was somewhat of a spur the moment project and I didn't have my camera handy to take pictures along the way. However, this blog has an excellent step-by-step guide that includes images. Since this was a last minute {DIY} I just used materials I had on hand. 



{I actually enjoy the rough edges along the ruffles I think it gives it a vintage feeling}


The tree skirt I made is all left over fabric that I had about 1 1/2 yards, which was plenty for the template and ruffle strips! Since all the other tree's {yes there are several} already have tree skirts, I thought my mini purple tree could use an update.

xoxo,

Birdie

Have any holiday decorations your wanting to make this season?
