Valentine’s Tree Skirt & BONUS Matching Button Hand Dyes Expression Batiks

Love is in the air! Cupid’s work may be done this year but that doesn’t mean you have to move on to the next holiday just yet. I still have my Christmas tree up! You might be asking yourself, what did she just say? Christmas tree? Still up? Yes!! Except it’s no longer called a Christmas tree. Instead, it’s called a Valentine’s tree! To extend the amount of time I could enjoy my tree, but still in keeping with the current holiday, I turned to these beautiful Hand Dyes Expression Batiks into a gorgeous Valentine’s tree skirt.

For this project, I selected Hand Dyes Salmon (the light pink) and Hand Dyes Soft Wine (the dark pink). I also chose Hand Dyes Snow White to really make the two pinks pop! This was my first tree skirt ever and I have to say, I’m obsessed! I purchased the pattern from TazzieQuilts on Etsy for less than $10 and it was money well spent! The instructions were clear and very easy to follow. But, if you’re like me, I prefer video instructions as well. So, I’ve put together a video tutorial with step by step instructions. And the best part? It’s completely FREE!!

This tree skirt really made it feel like Valentine’s Day as soon as you walk into our home. I left the Christmas lights on the tree because they could be multi-colored or white. I changed them to white and it looked so beautiful! But I had to take some of the Christmas ornaments off the tree because I went with a blue, white, and silver theme this year. The blue was not matching my lovely tree skirt! But the tree felt a little, empty with only white and silver ornaments. Cue the lightbulb moment. Valentine’s ornaments! But not just any ornaments from the store. They needed to match my tree skirt. I decided to make my very own fabric Valentine’s ornaments using the very same Hand Dyes Batiks fabric!

I found these cute clear 2″ ornaments on Amazon that were perfect for my project! This was the first time I had ever made ornaments too! Lots of firsts for this project, and I like it! And in case you’re worried about not knowing how to make ornaments using fabric, don’t worry, I cover that in another FREE video tutorial! Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss it.

The tree looked beautiful during the day with the tree skirt and matching ornaments, with or without the tree lights on. But I was not prepared for just how stunning it would look at nighttime with the front room lights off and only the tree lights on. I am in love!
