Create a beautiful tie blanket tree skirt for your Christmas tree this year! This is a simple, but lovely no-sew Christmas tree skirt idea.
Growing up my family never switched up our Christmas decorations. We used the same ornaments, the same ribbon, and the same tree skirt year after year. While I love all of my mom’s decorations, sentimentally, I think doing the same thing every year is a bit boring. I feel my most creative at Christmas, so I have a hard time not switching up my decorations each year.
Instead of always buying new decor every year, I DIY a lot of it. I created a no-sew ruffle tree skirt for our main tree. However, this year I have a second, smaller tree upstairs. It needed a tree skirt too. I made a fleece tie blanket recently for my mom and it inspired me! I decided to make a tie blanket tree skirt from festive printed fleece.

How to Make a No-Sew Tie Blanket Tree Skirt
To create a tie blanket tree skirt, you need a few yards of fleece. For a small tree, one yard of each should be enough. If your tree is larger, then you should use 2-3 yards of each fleece. One yard should be a solid-colored fleece. I chose red for my tree skirt. The other fleece should be a fun festive pattern. I chose a forest green and white houndstooth.
Cut the fabric into a square. Then, trim the corners to round them.
Cut a slit from one edge of the fabric to the center. It’s best to do this with the two fabric laying on top of each other. This is where you slide the skirt around the tree.
After the fabric is cut to size and rounded, start cutting the ties. Cut 4-5 inch long slits every 2-3 inches. Then tie the two fabric strips into knots. Continue tying all the way around the tree skirt.
Once you’re done you’ll have a super quick and easy skirt for a little tree. This approach would also work for a large tree skirt, but you’ll need a lot more fabric and a longer Christmas movie to watch while working on it. 😉
I’m super happy with the way the tree skirt turned out!
