Burlap Tree Skirt Alternative

Yesterday I shared my fun and affordable Christmas tree. I am so enjoying it, but the most at night when all the lights and sparkle are on. This girl loves a little sparkle!

I wanted to share my alternative tree skirt with you because, since I was trying to keep this affordable, I didn’t really have the space in the budget to buy a tree skirt. Also, the amount of burlap I had wasn’t really enough to make any of those adorable tree skirts I have seen all over pinterest. That is when I got an idea to switch it up a bit!

This little alternative didn’t cost me any money because I used a piece of burlap and some burlap ribbon I had on hand- love when that happens!!

Plus it only took about 5-10 minutes to put it together, and that is including my unsuccessful attempts to keep dogs out of my pictures. I started with my piece of burlap and folded the short side up to the long side so I could make a perfect (ish) square. Then I cut the excess off.

I pulled all the sides together and tied it off with my burlap ribbon and that is it!! Can you believe it?! Super simple!!
