Our poor Christmas tree has been skirt-less for the past five years. This is due to my insistence that I make vs. buy a skirt, and trouble deciding what kind of skirt to make. I am happy to report that our tree will be naked no more! Inspiration struck after I completed the sweater stockings and still had quite a few sweater remnants. I love that the new skirt ties the mantle and tree together and that I gave me another use for the sweater project. A similar look could easily be accomplished with fleece or felt.
