Don’t you just love Christmas? I know that I do, and I love that you can make Christmas decorations. Maybe you need a new Christmas tree skirt. In this post I’ll show you 21 Christmas tree skirt sewing patterns.
You can make tree skirts for mini trees or your regular Christmas tree. The general rule of thumb for a tree skirt is that the skirt needs to be a least 4-6 inches larger than base of the tree.
All these tree skirt quilt patterns are free patterns. When you make your own tree skirt it adds a handmade touch to your Christmas decorations.
Instead of just having just 3 or 4 different fabrics, fabric bundles will usually have about 20 or more different prints depending on the kind of bundle and the brand.
I hope you enjoy all these different sewing projects for Christmas tree skirts and Merry Christmas.

This one is not a quilted tree skirt. You make it with felt fabric, but I think that this is the cutest tree skirt I’ve seen. The traditional red it’s done in makes it perfect for the holiday season.
10. Pleated Ruffle Tree Skirt
This is a very elegant looking tree skirt, and it has a button closure. To me it would look great in different colors of fabric. And the seam allowance for this pattern is 1/2″.

18. Peppermint Swirl Tree Skirt
You can’t have Christmas without peppermints. So, this peppermint tree skirt is great if you decorated for Christmas with peppermints.
19. Paper Piecing Tree Skirt
I call this pattern a crazy quilt, because that’s what it makes me think of. The only thing is that to get the PDF pattern pieces you have to “checkout” the free pattern. But I did it and it does not ask for any payment information, just you’re name and address. And because it is a paper piecing pattern, I would consider it a intermediate skill level.
20. Vintage Tree Skirt
I love that you can embroider this vintage tree skirt. You can also put a pom pom trim around the edges of the tree skirt.
21. Trip Around The Tree Skirt
I love the patchwork look of this trip around the tree skirt. Scrappy tree skirts are great for using all those fabric scraps.
So, there you have it, 21 great Christmas tree skirt sewing patterns. And the great thing is that they’re all free patterns, and if you can make the tree skirt out of your scrap fabric. That’s a money saver right there.
Every quilter has a pile of scrap fabric, so it’s always great to find a pattern that uses some of those scraps.
I hope that with all these Christmas tree skirt sewing patterns you will find one or more tree skirts you want to make. The best thing about making your own tree skirt is that you can make as many as you want. So, you can switch them out every Christmas.
