- 4 yards of material
- a sheet
- sewing machine
- tape measure
- glue gun
3. Using the glue gun, begin gluing the ruffle to the sheet all the way around, beginning at the bottom and working your way up.
4. When your circle is filled with all the ruffle layers, measure around the circle at the top of the skirt and cut a piece of material double that size in length and about 4 inches in height. This piece will be used to cover up the thread showing at the top layer of ruffles.
5. Begin glueing this strip of material to the top of the skirt to give a more finished looking edge. Make sure that you leave an inch hanging over on the top to glue down onto the back of the skirt. You will need to pinch the material, onced glued down, to give a little of a ruffled look. Once you have worked your way around, flip it over and glue the top done onto the back of the tree skirt.
6. Place the finished skirt under your tree and fluff up the ruffles to give a fuller look.
