Learn how to make a DIY tree collar for a Christmas tree with fabric. This easy Christmas sewing project can replace a tree skirt.
I decided to try out a DIY tree collar to see if I would like it, and if it would make my life easier since I’d never have to adjust it once I set it up. After trying it out for a week, I LOVE it!
– cotton canvas (depends on the size of your tree base and the width of your fabric) – medium weight interfacing – fusible fleece – Velcro
Measure from the floor up to the lowest branches. Mine measured 12 inches. Measure all the around the circumference of the tree base. Mine measured 64 inches.
Draw out a short and long rectangle. The height will be the height you measured, like 12 inches. The length will be the circumference you measured, like 64 inches.
Add 1 inch to both the height and the length for the seam allowances. Then add some length for the part of the tree collar that will overlap. I did a 2 inch overlap.
