Create a beautiful custom-made DIY bed skirt without sewing using 5 simple steps and get a high end look for less. Part of the One Room Challenge.

I’ve always adored how my grandmother used matching bedding, wallpaper, and window treatments with the same fabrics. My fantasies of being a princess seemed to come to life when I spent the night. A young lady enveloped in a floral room was magic. I decided to bring an updated version of that into our master bedroom for the One Room Challenge with matching window treatments and a DIY no sew bed skirt.
How to make a DIY Fringe Bedskirt without Sewing
Welcome to the One Room Challenge: Week 6 update! I’m making over our master bedroom with ensuite bathroom in 8 weeks along with many other feature designers and guest participants. There are only a couple of weeks left until the big reveal and I’m excited to see what everyone has done!

Here’s what you need for a DIY bed skirt:
- 3 yards of fabric – I’m using the same Shibori Hyacinth fabric from my curtains
- 6 and 1/2 yards of 6- 7.5″ bullion fringe
- Tape measure
- Hot glue gun and sticks
- Iron-on hemming tape
- Straight pins or staples
How to Make a No-sew DIY Bedskirt – Dust Ruffle
- Measure the length and width of your bed. You can find a handy mattress size chart for American beds here. Add an extra 12 inches to the two sides and front of the bed. (Queen size = 80″+ 80″+60″ plus an extra 12″) My fabric was wide enough to cut into three large strips so 3 yards was more than enough.
- Cut fabric to 18″ strips and attach pieces together with iron-on fusing tape if needed. Create the seams at the front corners of the bed. For a queen size that’s about 60″ apart.
- Now you should have one long strip of fabric. Hot glue fringe to the bottom edge all the way across working in small sections.
- Wrap the box spring with the fabric and adjust the length. I like mine slightly pooling on the ground. Fold the corner pieces of fabric on top of the box spring so they lay flat. Hot glue in place.
- Keep the overlapping fabric on top in place with straight pins or use a staple gun to attach directly to the box spring. The top mattress will hold the dust ruffle in place. Attach 3-4 strips of fabric across the box spring to each side of the dust ruffle for extra hold.
And that’s it! There’s really not much to it. You can whip up a custom made bed skirt in no time! And isn’t the fringe glorious?
The matching dust ruffle and curtains are beautiful together. Keeping the rest of the color palette with blues really adds a boutique feel to the room.
Time to tackle the rest of the to-do list for the One Room Challenge! A huge thanks to all of the sponsors that are helping me create a beautiful bedroom and bathroom.
