I Heart Ruffles - Christmas Tree Skirt

Once again, I was inspired on Pinterest - this is becoming a trend, no?  When I saw this Ruffled Christmas Tree Skirt at Miss Mustard Seed, I almost fainted.  It's gorgeous, and NO SEW!!! Hello?  SOLD!  I could not wait to get my little fingers working on this project!

And boy did I get my fingers working!  This puppy took me about 8 hours to make and LOTS of hot glue burns - but is was so worth it!!!  The poor little bean was squished in my belly for 8 hours as I was hunched over the fabric, so I took a lot of breaks. 

I am so proud of this skirt, seriously proud.  This thing was a labor of love, and I really do LOVE her!

I love those darn ruffles - aren't they so fun?

Here she is under the tree... much better than the stained, old and worn skirt I threw away last year!!

See the mass collection of ornaments on the right side?  That was Addie, she tends to group all of her ornaments on the same branch, LOL.  I leave them there though - that's where she wants them!  (I have actually found that if I move them, they always end up back on the same little ole' branch).

Merry Christmas from the Hayes Household!
