Boughs of Holly Tree Skirt


Deck your tree with the Boughs of Holly Tree Skirt! The delicate pattern adds a Classic Christmas feel, resembling hanging garland and bulbs. Keep the ruffle hem the same color, or add an accent to modify to the holiday vibe that best suits your tree.


Better late than never, right? I tried SO.

Plus, now you have a whole 11 months to work on it so it's ready for your tree (or whomever else you might make it for) next year!

I've been wanting to make a Tree Skirt for a while but could never settle on the design. This year, inspiration hit! I've had some pretty duddy tree skirts since I've been living on my own. For whatever reason I cannot bring myself to buy the ones I like because I think spending $50 on a tree skirt is too much. Which is ironic because after the yarn cost and crochet hours on this bad boy- I certainly spent WAY more than that! But, it's different, right? ;)
