Sweater Surgery Christmas Tree Skirt-Cut that Sweater up Baby!

Yes, you too can make this cute tree skirt from:
All you need to do is grab yourself a sweater with a pattern that goes all the way around the front and back. In this case this sweater isn't felted. Either way you are OK!

Cut out the top circle decorative element. Now, when I made this one I serged the edge and then folded it under and blanket stitched around with some red reclaimed yarn from the remaining sweater but you could either zig zag stitch and then blanket stitch or just fold under and stitch.
If you are using a felted sweater you could just leave it plane or embellish any way you want!

A fast and festive handmade holiday decoration!
