I know we just celebrated Independence Day here in America, but now it's Christmas in July. So today, I am sharing the Frozen Inspired Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt I made last year. Last Christmas, I bought a new tree that's white with blue lights. I decided to give our Christmas decor a Frozen theme since my daughter LOVES Frozen. Our tree was decked out in blue, pink, and purple ornaments, so I chose the same colors for the tree skirt.
I started my crochet tree skirt by making pentagons with pink, purple, and blue yarn. I made eight and joined them using a join as you go method.
I decided that this was big enough. But if next year, I decided that I want it a little bigger, I can easily add on more rows.
After I was done making rows I went back to the center of the skirt and added a couple rows. I was going to close the skirt with buttons, but I decided to add crochet ties instead.
Now, it fits perfectly around the tree.
This was my first time crocheting a Christmas tree skirt, and I'm pleased how it turned out, especially since I did not follow a pattern.
Once I finished the skirt, I got busy wrapping our presents. I used a couple different Frozen wrapping papers. I've bought my children mostly pajamas, books, and a couple movies since they already have a bunch of toys.Here's a closer look at a few of the ornaments on our Christmas tree. I put a crown at the top of the tree because Elsa is the Queen of Arendelle, and Anna is a princess. I found the ornaments with the picture of Elsa and Anna at the Dollar Tree. I bought all that they had! I also purchased the ornaments with mirrored squares from the Dollar Tree. And our Elf on the Shelf was just hanging out in the tree for two reasons: 1. I was so busy crocheting and decorating for Christmas, and 2. My daughter touched the elf! Kids aren't supposed to touch the elf!!!
