Fir, Meet Fur.

With a real tree in the house this year (!!!) I had to come up with a new tree skirt solution.  Last year I was able to drape a small piece of fabric around the the front and it worked out perfectly.  Well that little thing wasn't gonna cut it this year.  This 7' Fraser Fir deserved a little something luxurious.  I've been oogling over a few faux fur tree skirts and come to find out (after a major basement cleaning)  I actually had a large square of rich chocolately faux fur on hand.  As quickly as Christmas is creeping up, I didn't have time to figure out how to make anything fancy.  I opted for the no sew option using my furry basement find!

This project literally took 3 mins, needs no experience and in my case didn't cost a darn thing. Wanna give it a go?  Here's how I did it.  Gather a large piece of thick material (in my case faux fur) and lay it out flat.  
Starting from a corner cut to the middle of the square.  Create an X using the pattern below with cuts large enough to allow space for the tree trunk and tree stand.
Wrap it around the tree, fold the raw edges under and form into a circle.  Seriously the easiest project ever.
All that's left to do is decorate and enjoy the glow.  :)  So who's trying this one either now or next year?!
