Passion Parade and DIY tree skirt

Happy Friday world! Its passion parade once again!
Are you done with your Christmas decorations?
 


There's a lot of pending unfinished Christmas projects lying around here. I totally lost time i needed to finish them all. I really do miss what I do before I got a job at retail, where my world revolves in providing great customer service and window shopping. I miss blogging. I miss taking care of our home. I miss a good home made meal from scratch. I miss...me.

Although, i am earning a  bit, I still couldn't rid in me the excitement in diy mentality. Yes, i could afford now to get me a nice tree skirt, but the thrifty side of me wants something else!
 
Last year was when we bought our very first Christmas tree, and the only tree skirt my husband and I could compromise was...well... this.
 
 
Then I found a round Christmas table cloth and one plain red bed sheet. All together cost me less than $5. At least I wont feel guilty cutting them as ruffles.
 
 
 
 

I used my ruffler and sewed my ruffled fabrics in an alternate fashion and used the felt tree skirt as my base.
 
 
I love how it turned out! I love the festive colors.
 
 
 
And Yoda? I think he is happy he could rest under the tree.

  5. Hi Myric,
    That's a very cute tree skirt! Yes, it is very different when you have a job, isn't it? Honestly, I wish I didn't have to work full time! I would not get bored...but I need the money. I'm going to add my link to your party, even though it's Monday!
    Hugs, Cindy
