DIY Tree Skirt with DIY Pom Poms

grey plaid flannel Christmas tree skirt

…those dehydrated oranges against the flannel…my heart…

I LOVE decorating for Christmas. And I love DIYing my decor even more. Today I am showing you how to make a tasteful and classic reversible Christmas tree skirt out of flannel and fleece with the easiest DIY pom pom trim. When you see how amazing this looks, you will want to go buy another tree just to need a new tree skirt!

Choosing fabrics and pairing them together is an art. (My tutorial for choosing fabrics is coming!) For this project, I wanted something that was going to have a very hygge vibe. Hygge is a Danish word for the mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. It is ALL about being warm and happy, togetherness and the special little touches that make your house a home. I am going to be doing my downstairs family room Christmas tree with a Hygge vibe complete with cranberry and popcorn garland that my kids can make together by a cozy fire and dehydrated oranges that fill my house with a warm inviting scent. And the piéce de resistance is going to be my plaid flannel and fleece tree skirt. It is so cozy and inviting that someone might just steal it from the tree to cozy up with themselves!

I chose a subdued black and grey plaid flannel for one side of my skirt. The black and grey is elegant and classic. It will never go out of style and it will really be a lovely background that my ornaments will really pop against! The other side of my flannel is a cozy black and white plaid fleece. It is a bolder and probably trendier choice than my flannel but it adds a cozy vibe and a burst of brightness that I love.


  • 1 yard each of coordinating fabrics in 60 inch width. If the fabric you want doesn’t come in that width (like my flannel), just get 2 yards and I will show you how to piece them together.

  • a marker and a piece of yarn to make a compass.

  • Yarn (for pom poms)

  • Ribbon (to attach the pom poms to the tree skirt)

  • Sewing machine and coordinating thread.

  • Walking Foot (helps a ton…seriously…but not required)
