My sewing machine.
Luckily for me I also have a secret weapon, every crafter’s best friend-a glue gun! And that’s exactly what I used to make this pretty ruffled drop cloth tree skirt.
All you need to make these are a hot glue gun and drop cloth. (And scissors if you want to get all technical on me.)
Cut the base of the tree skirt out of drop cloth-I didn’t even bother making mine a perfect circle since my Woodland Tree is set in a corner.
Cut long strips of drop cloth in the width you’d like your ruffle. Begin gluing and folding the pleats. Repeat. A lot.
To hide the line between the pleats and the base I created a sort of hot glue piping by rolling and gluing another strip of dropcloth then gluing it over the seam.
Pat yourself on the back.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Monday I’ll be co-hosting my very first time ever and ever Linky Party. I’m joining with some blogging friends to share our Heirloom Recipes. You know those extra special recipes written on tiny scraps of paper passed down through generations….please come by and link up your family favorites to join in the fun!
