Monkey Party: Easy DIY Ruffled Table Skirt Tutorial. Today I’m sharing an easy Ruffled Table Skirt Tutorial made with an inexpensive shower curtain. Be sure to check out my other tutorials and craft ideas as well as the Monkey Party this Table skirt was featured in!
This super easy ruffled table skirt tutorial will show you how I made a beautiful ruffled table skirt for under $20!! I know, right? This is the perfect addition to a party table and easy on the budget!! Check it out…
- 1 ruffled shower curtain. (I used this light pink ruffled shower curtain (Lorraine Home Fashions Gypsy Shower Curtain, 70-Inch by 72-Inch, Pink), but is also available in many different colors as well.
- sewing machine (with thread, etc.)
- safety pins
- coordinating no pill fleece fabric
Here how to make it:
Firstly, I cut the shower curtain in half (horizontally). Then I trimmed the excess so that each section had three nice ruffles. I then sewed the shower curtain sections together to make one long ruffled piece. This piece was the perfect size to wrap around the front and sides of my table.
Next I used a piece of sturdy fleece as the top of the table cloth. I laid it out on the table and safety pinned the the ruffled piece around the edge of the table like the picture below:
Once the ruffles were tightly pinned onto the fleece, I removed both from the table and sewed along the ruffle edge to make the table cloth one piece.This made the perfect ruffled shower curtain for our girly monkey party. The best part though…I made the whole thing for under $20. Considering handmade ruffled table clothes sell for hundreds of dollars, I was pretty proud of this one!!Wanna throw a Monkey Party?
