Christmas tree skirt

Mom wanted a new tree skirt with between a 6ft to 8ft diameter.  She asked for it to be either blue or red velvet.  I had both on hand.

Since I had more blue velvet than red, the tree skirt ended up being blue.  Mom said she wanted a plain tree skirt but I can't do plain.  Being a Navy family, I knew at least Dad would appreciate some gold trim on the blue velvet.  I happened to have a ton of gold trim due to a very large bin of trim I bought at an SCA event a few weeks ago for $15.  So, I just used that around the outer edge.

The tree skirt is very simple.  I used the same method to make it as I do for circle skirts.  It took all of 30 minutes to put together.  Mom and Dad love it.
