10 Easy Diy Tree Skirts with Lots of No-Sew Ideas!

10 Quick and Easy Tree Skirts

I didn’t really understand the point of a tree skirt until a few years ago, when my husband and I started doing the real Christmas tree thing.

But I still believe that you shouldn’t spend more time making a tree skirt than you do trimming your tree. These quick and easy tree skirts come together in a flash. There are lots of no-sew options on this list, so don’t think that only seamstresses can have homemade tree skirts!

Denim or corduroy would look nice for the house, especially if you choose cheery contrasting scraps to make the doors, windows, etc.
