Just what I was looking for when I googled how to use a sheet for a bedskirt! Hope this works better! A twin xl bed?
This is so awesome!!! WHY are bed skirts so expensive???? Thank you so much for sharing this! I have been struggling with bed skirts for so long. Between the kids and the dog, the skirts I keep buying you know the ones with that paper like material that is supposed to cover the top of box spring gets stepped on a lot and would tear. I am going to give your way a try. I made this tonight for a queen size bed on risers. I started by measuring the length from the top of the box spring to the floor 21 inches.
Then I measured the length and width of the box spring and added 21 twice to the width and once to the length. By measurements I knew I needed a king size flat sheet. It turned out great and the upholstery pins were simple to use. Thank you for the idea! Thank you for your bed skirt idea.
I did something similar years ago and am going to do your better version now on a new daybed. Might you also have any ideas on how to do some no sew kitchen seat cushion covers? I might try this with a drop cloth for a little more body in my bed skirt. Any idea how I can make this work? Wow This is on my keeper list? I actually love to sew, but this would be soooooo much easier. And leave more time for fun sewing! Thanks for sharing your brilliance.
I think I will use safety pins on the corner fold though. Would you recommend using thumbtacks the flat kind instead of the upholstery pins? I too HATE sewing. Thanks for this tutorial.
Thank you so much for sharing!!! My concern would be the girls pulling up the skirt to get things from under bed etc. There are so many great no sew fabric adhesives out there that would work wonderfully. Will the pins hold in place when they are jumping on the bed?? I love the look! I hope that helps! I thought I could make a skirt to match my daughters hello kitty bedding that has sage colored gumballs. You are the absolute best! Thank you sooo incredibly much for sharing this cheat with the world!
Correct me if I am wrong: So excited to get started!! I found this tutorial through pinterest and I did it for a full size bed and it worked great, I didnt even have to worry about the over hang part. Now I just need the pins, or something similar. Thanks for this great tutorial! So glad my tutorial helped you figure out the corners—it was kind of hard to explain: And so happy to hear it works for full size beds, too!
Just what I was looking for when I googled how to use a sheet for a bedskirt! I got that part of the idea myself, but using the upholstery pins is genius! I am so excited to have this knowledge and be able to make any bedskirt I want from now on. This is an example to me of how we can get back to using our brains like our forefathers did out of necessity.
Instead of buying every specific thing, we can make things out of other things. So glad this will work for you. Thank you for this! I am so excited to try this tomorrow! They will gain tools to help them clean their rooms; treat each other lovingly and other very beneficial things…. I have been looking for well over a year for a king size low profile bed skirt without success.
Now off to find that bed skirt flat sheet for the skirt!!! Thank you so much for posting this! I am definitely going to try this!! We just got a king-sized bed set that we horse-traded to get. The box it sits in a handmade and awesome, but seriously ugly. Now I just have to talk my husband into moving the mattress…one.
I also wanted a bed skirt so I used fitted sheets and put on the box springs and just let it be. I am going to tighten it with the upholstery pins like you used. I am happy with it just the way it is but it will look neater with the pins.
I hope the upholstery pins help get your tighter! The second I read that you put the sheet on the box springs, I knew what you were going to do. I love to sew, but not bedskirts. They alway end up to long or to short. I am redecorating my two guest room and will be using this method. Holy schnikes this is awesome! Now place the mattress back on the box spring. Velcro Detachable Bed skirt can be easily removed and put on without lifting your mattress.
It attaches with Velcro to a special dust ruffle platform that fits over your box spring under mattress.

Yes you can surely opt these bedskirts. Benefit is — you do not need to move mattress to use these. Only thing is you need to order bedskirt pins separately. You can select elastic bedskirt or wrap around bedskirt from options while buying.

Bed Spread is a decorative extra large flat sheet which covers all three sides of bed. When we were packing up everything in Oklahoma to move here, we bought some white plastic zip up cover bags for our mattress and box spring so they would stay nice and clean throughout the moving process.
Our sweet little Gabby tore open the bottom of the cover and enjoyed crawling up in there and running around and tearing it up even more. We tried at some point, to trim some of the excess off and tape it up but it was a failed effort.
I thought about just getting a queen sized fitted sheet to put on the box spring to make it look better, but then I saw a tutorial on Pinterest of wrapping fabric around your box spring as an alternative to a bed skirt. I really liked the look of it and knew that I could find a cheap, durable fabric and make it look just as good, if not better than simply covering the box spring with a fitted sheet. It did take some time and effort, but I am pleased with the outcome. Here is where I derived the idea from.
So if you are considering this as a bed skirt alternative I suggest you look at the full instructions. I first measured the length, width, and height of our box spring and added the lengths and widths together to get the total inches all the way around.
For my fabric, I bought 3 yards of a natural canvas fabric. Like what you would make a canvas tote bag or something of the like. It was on sale and I thought it would be more durable and stand up a little better to wear and tear than just your everyday regular cotton fabric. I also thought the neutral color of the natural canvas would still work great if we ever decided to change our bedding.
Q: I recently bought a 13" mattress and a box (without springs because the salesman said I don't need springs) that is only 5" high.I like this height and don't want to put the whole ensemble on a frame.
