Last year, we got a second Christmas tree for a different room in the house. But, I didn’t make or buy any sort of nice tree skirt to go with it. In fact, what I have might actually be a dollar store purchase. I don’t remember where I got it, but I know it was really inexpensive–basically just a large piece of red felt-type fabric. It really needed some sprucing up! So, I did! The picture doesn’t actually do it justice–with our gold-themed tree, the skirt looks great and provides just the right amount of added sparkle. I made it using Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ Shimmer Transfer Sheets. It was SO easy and I got it done during naptime! Bonus!
Here’s what I did:
– I used a gold sheet from a Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ Shimmer Transfer Sheets package. (I have yet to try all those awesome Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ Shimmer Fabric Paints yet, but I have a few ideas!)
– I decided to use snowflakes for the design, using a snowflake punch. There’s a layer of plastic coating on top of the glitter that has to be removed before ironing. I decided to peel that layer back first to make the punching easier. I don’t know if you’re “supposed” to do that, but it worked out great! – I punched out as many snowflakes as I could using one sheet of transfer paper.– Next up, time for the layout and ironing. I propped up the tree skirt on the table and laid out the snowflakes about where I’d like them. Then, I ironed them on, just as the directions say. It was SO easy!– After ironing them on for just a few seconds, they looked like this:– So in under an hour, that’s how I spruced up our cheap tree skirt! And, it looks great with our gold tree! 🙂
I loved how easy the Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ Shimmer Transfer Sheets were to use and think the end result is great!

It looks beautiful! I’ve never heard of transfers like that. It looks like it’s easy enough for me to do.
This is a great spruce up! I’ve never seen those transfers before, you are very lucky to get fun stuff like that! Does the glitter stay really well or does it rub off? Thanks for sharing, I’m your newest follower!
