Complete your Christmas tree decoration by sewing an original star-shaped tree skirt.

A tree skirt is great for covering up the stand and to give your tree a nice finish. It’s also the perfect backdrop to display your wrapped gift.

Tree skirts are great wherever you are using a natural or an artificial tree.  To suit your Christmas decor, nothing better than a handmade tree skirt that matches your color scheme.

The pattern comes in 4 sheets and can be print on US letter-sized paper. Place the pages following the printing plan and glue or tape the pages together.

What size tree skirt should I get for my tree?

The pattern is available in three different sizes: 56, 46, and 31 inches in diameter (142, 110, and 80 cm). This allows you to sew the tree skirt to the size that best suits the height of your Christmas tree.

You can use the large skirt pattern if you have a tree 7 feet (220cm) tall or higher.

The medium skirt is perfect for a 6-5 feet (180-150 cm) tree, it’s the size I sewn for our tree.

The small skirt pattern is to be made for trees whose high is less than 4 feet (120 cm). Don’t you agree that even small Christmas trees deserve pretty decorations?

I give you these measurements recommendations as an indication, feel free to choose what fits best for your tree and your decor.

How much fabric do I need for a tree skirt?

As I said you can choose between 3 skirt sizes. The fabric yardage came into the PDF tutorial.

If you want to go ahead and check how much fabric you will need to make this Christmas sewing project, I share the details below.

Large diameter skirt (56 in. / 142 cm diameter)  >>> 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 yards (1,5 x1,5 m)
Medium diameter skirt (46 in. / 110 cm diameter)  >>> 1 x 1 1/2 yards (1×1,5 m)
Small diameter skirt (31 in. 80 cm diameter) >>> 3/4 x 1 1/2 yards (0,75 m x1,5 m)

Sewing star-shaped tree skirt

I recommend you use medium-weight fabric such as velvet, faux suede, or cotton fabric.

It’s easier to make the skirt with a plain fabric. If you choose a printed fabric, think about the design fittings when you cut out the fabric pieces.

I show you how to finish the star-shaped tree skirt adding a pom pom trim all around the edge. This detail gives the tree skirt a festive finish, but it’s optional.
