A $2 Tree Skirt

This year, I searched high and low for an affordable tree skirt. I wanted something simple, in a white or cream. I saw lots of really beautiful ones, but I have a hard time paying $40 or $50 for something I would use for only a couple of weeks.
So, I was browsing through the Dollarama one day and came upon their felt tree skirts. I bought 2 of them and took them home.
One I left intact and the other one I used to make little felted rosettes. I would explain how to do it, but Ellen at Creative Passage offers the best instructions, so you can find them here.
Mine were just cut freehand while watching tv, so they are certainly not all the same size, but I like them that way. I glued them all in a random pattern all over one section of the skirt.





What do you think? Not bad for $2?
Don't mind the bad pictures. I've been playing around with Picasa.. not so successfully:)
