Are you ready for a free video tutorial of the Snow Flurry Tree Skirt?
Crochet Christmas tree skirts are my favorite crochet home decor item to design, so that’s why I have so many of them. I’m happy to say that I finally have a YouTube video for the Snow Flurry Tree Skirt! Check it out below or on my YouTube Channel!
The Snow Flurry Tree Skirt is a Christmas tree skirt that works for every design aesthetic.
The tree skirt is a long rectangle that is like a scarf for your tree. You wrap it around at the base of the tree and works great for live Christmas trees or artificial Christmas trees.
The Snow Flurry Tree Skirt is designed to make your Christmas tree look effortlessly put together. Like you threw down a blanket to cover the Christmas tree stand, but it looks cozy and inviting.
There are two sizes for these Christmas tree skirt- a partial wrap and a full wrap. A full wrap is 98 inches and a partial is 62 inches.
Depending on where you display your Christmas tree will determine what size to make.
If you display your Christmas tree in a corner where the back of the tree does not matter, you can do the partial wrap.
If you need the tree skirt to look good from all sides of your Christmas tree, you will need a full wrap.
This tree skirt is a beginner crochet pattern. The difficulty is easy.
Three crochet stitches are used in this design. Chain, single crochet, and double crochet are what is used.
The only part of the design that may be frustrating or challenging for a beginner is working with two strands of yarn at the same time. When you crochet with double strands, you treat the two strands of yarn as if they are one.
This could be frustrating for someone who just barely learned because their are more loops to juggle, but as long as you remember to treat the two strands as one, you will be golden.
Crocheting double stranded is encouraging for beginners because the project works up faster, which is always a net positive for any crocheter, but especially a beginner who is looking for a win.
So don’t be intimidated by this project if you are a novice crocheter! I have had many people tell me this was their very first crochet project, and they successfully made the Snow Flurry Tree Skirt.

ASSEMBLING AROUND THE TREE
1. Lay the rectangle in front of the tree with the back edge of the rectangle touching the bottom of the tree.
2. Wrap both top/bottom edges towards the back of the tree.
3. Let the tree skirt puddle and bubble around the base. It is not supposed to lay flat. It is supposed to pool around the base.
