So I know I've been absent from the blog for quite some time. I've had a few things keeping me occupied, but I won't bore you with all the details. Obviously the blog has been low on my priority list and as a result it's been struggling. :)
We are so excited for Christmas around here. I cannot believe it is just around the corner. I actually did this project last year before I started writing on this blog, but I thought I'd share it now.
Last Christmas was the first year that we had our first "real" tree. It's artificial, but the reason I say "real" is that the tree we had used previously to was just a small, 4 ft tall one. After getting our new full-sized tree, I started searching for a tree skirt that I liked. I had a really hard time finding one that I could justify spending any money on. However, when I saw Miss Mustard Seed's tree skirt I fell in love. It wasn't difficult, but it did take a few hours to make. The instructions can be found here.
Eric wanted to add a little color so we did a red and cream striped skirt. I alternated 2 rows of red, 3 rows of cream. I think that combo turned out looking nice.
