About a month ago, I made a chunky knit blanket for Matt and shared it on my Instagram Stories. I don’t think I’ve ever in my life received so many requests for a tutorial!
I finally filmed how I made his throw blanket, but with a twist. I needed a skirt for my Christmas tree in Ohio. My mother-in-law texted me a photo of a chunky knit blanket used as a tree skirt and I was like, I GOT THIS! And my chunky knit Christmas tree skirt idea was born.
No crochet needles/hooks are needed for this DIY. You need two things: chunky yarn and your hands. That’s it! Talk about a personal Christmas gift idea. 🙂
I used the Bernat Blanket Big Stitch Yarn in “Soft White.” Three skeins were just the right amount for my tree skirt. For a lap throw blanket, I’d recommend at least four skeins. My favorite yarn is currently ON SALE! Use coupon code: SALE25W to buy four skeins of yarn for only $19.48! Such an awesome deal. You can make a gorgeous throw blanket for under $20!!

As you can see, my Christmas tree is already up. I managed to decorate the tree for under $150. Actually, I think it was closer to $125. If you want a detailed blog post about my budget-friendly Christmas decor, leave a comment below. I’ve found some adorable pieces for under $10 and $20 this year that y’all will absolutely LOVE.
Here’s the link to my Christmas tree. It’s SO gorgeous in person and such a reasonable price for a flocked tree.
