Chaotic Christmas Countdown
WOW.....this little "PROJECT" has cost me some time and some SKIN!!!! I now have 3rd degree burns to my fingers and permanent creases between my eyebrows.....OK.....maybe I already had those but I would like to blame them on something besides my age!!! ;)
I will give you the "how to" on wrapping the presents in an upcoming post!!
So without anything further, I give you my
4-1/2' x 4-1/2' piece of canvas
5 yards of fabric (I bought 1 yard of each design)
hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
Using a tape measure, mark and cut a square of canvas that is approximately 4-1/2' x 4-1/2'
Fold the square into quarters, then over itself to form a triangle with the folded center at point. Cut base in a quarter circle (Image 2 and 3)
Cut a small quarter circle out of the point (Image 4)Open the skirt until it's folded in half and cut along the radius on one side of the center hole only (Image 5) This will provide a hole for the tree trunk and a slit in the fabric so the skirt can be placed under the tree.
Tip: I used a canvas painter's drop cloth!!!!!!
Apply no-fray glue along all raw edges and allow to dry!!
Maesure and cut your fabric that you are making your ruffles out of lenghtwise into approx 2 inch strips!
Apply a line of hot glue approximately 1 1/2 inches from outside edge of skirt. Create ruffles by pinching fabric with fingers and pushing gathers down onto hot glue! Work in small sections, I just did one good squeeze with the glue gun down the fabric! (See pic's below) Then continue this process around the entire skirt edge! Start the next row approximately 1 1/2 inches above the previous row. Continue adding rows until you reach a point that you just don't think you can take another row!!! ;)
When I thought that I was going to have to start drinking, I decided to add a large piece of fabric to the middle and add a few more rows until I met up with it!!
This is what it looked like when I added the fabric and cut a hole for the center!
I have to say that it turned out AWESOME but I will not be making another one anytime soon!!!!
If you have any questions, PLEASE contact me!!! ;)
