DIY Embroidered Christmas Tree Skirt

A couple years ago, I saw a picture of a tree skirt that had painted hand prints in a bunch of different colors. I thought it'd be kind of cool in black and white, but then I thought about embroidering the handprints instead. I always get so busy with DIY stuff in December, so I waited to work on this in January. I had some plain white fabric that I dyed with avocado pits to make the pale pink. I kind of winged it on the sewing portion of this. It's not perfect, but it does the job.

I traced the girls handprints on paper and played around with placement before drawing the outline.  Each handprint took me about 30-45 minutes to embroider and it was so easy to work on here and there while watching tv or downtime throughout the day. 

I finished embroidering towards the end of January and put it away in storage. It was such a joy to unpack and put the skirt out this year. I love picturing how the handprints will multiply through the years and will bring a smile to my face every time I pull it out.
