Plan B: an idea taken from Crate and Barrel.
First I got a very large piece of felt. The string is to make a tool (whose name escapes me), that I safety pinned one end down and tied the other to a sharpie. Then I drew a circle.
And I cut the circle out. As well as making a little circle in the middle and cut a slit from outside to inside.
Then I put it under the tree. TADA!
This is my favorite button. 'Cause it's sparkly. And it's old.
And there you have it. My Christmas tree, complete with a new tree skirt.
