Christmas in July Guest Tara with Taradara Made It

Today, Tara with Taradara Made It is here to share a SUPER CUTE and super sentimental Holiday craft with y’all!

Hi there! I’m Tara from Taradara Made It.

I love this Christmas in July idea that Ami has going on and am so happy to be a part of it today! I hope you enjoy my little Christmas Tree Skirt Tutorial today!


I’m all about getting our house ready for Christmas in small attainable ways!

I saw this idea in a magazine while I was having a nice ‘ME’ break at Barnes and Noble.

Sipping my Starbuck’s Black Iced Tea,

I thumbed through a Christmas {Family Time} magazine and this family crafty decoration caught my eye.

It was fun tickling the boys’ fingers while I traced their handprint on to the felt!

The one and only pink hand on the entire skirt


I used Tulip fabric paint to do the initial and year

To make it even easier, I used simple fabric glue to adhere the hands to the skirt.


{that was a strange concept for me!}

Here it is!

It was just the kids’ hands in the magazine, but I thought it would be nice to have ours for the first year and then add the boys’ hands annually.

Fun, hey! And super easy! It’ll be a great Christmas tradition to have and to watch what year the boys’ hands will be bigger than mine!
