Embellished Tree Skirt [Cheater Applique]

Well friends, I have a confession.  I'm too cheap to buy a good tree skirt.  There.  I've said it.  I just haven't found anything I love enough to spend the money on....especially since it's something that is only going to be covered with presents and unseen for most of the season anyway.  (It's not so much that they are expensive, it's just that they go so unseen.) 

So, until then, I've purchased a cheap inexpensive scalloped, felt tree skirt from Target (said with a Frenchesque accent so as to make it sound fancier...Tar-jhay).  The past few years I've just made sure to wrap the presents (with beautiful paper and ribbon, I may add) and cover that sucker up pretty quickly.  This year I decided to do a little something about it for the time being.



I picked up some jumbo green rick rack during my last trip to JoAnn's, grabbed the Tacky glue from the craft closet, and went to town.  Now, I'm not saying it compares to the fancier tree skirts out there, but I do think it added a little finishing touch that was needed. 


I'm still debating on adding an "F".  Hubby, of course, says he thinks it's not necessary.  I'm thinking by the end of the season though I will have added the thin one.  What's your vote??


Merry, Merry!
