Burap Tree Skirt

 
I have seen so many burlap tree skirt but they all have ruffles and I was looking for something more simple.  When I saw this printed burlap at Hobby Lobby I knew that it was going to be perfect for a tree skirt!  The best part is that because I wanted it to look simple that means it was going to be very simple to make! Yay!
 

 
The first thing I did was fold it in half horizontally and then again vertically.  Then I measured from the inside corner a 24 inch radius and marked it with an invisible marker. Then I cut on that line through both layers of burlap.

Next I measured 4 inches and marked another line for the center hole and cut that as well.

Then I cut a straight line from the edge to the circle. 

Next I flipped it over and used Mod Podge on all the edges to make sure that it will not fray.  I let it dry for about an hour.
 
Love the simple and beautiful look!  Just what I wanted!




 
Perfect, just love the tree skirt, felt candy canes and felt stars!
Add some pinecones and a little gold and its my perfect rustic tree!

This looks great! And great idea with the mod podge on the edges. I'm thinking of trying this with some of the faux fur fabric maybe. I love how simple you kept it. Hope to see you back at Found & Foraged tonight!
