Easiest Way to Attach a Crib Skirt

Last week I wrote about the easiest way I’ve found to make your own crib skirt, and today I’m sharing how to attach it to the crib.

I use velcro.

I took some adhesive velcro squares and stuck them every 12″ or so along the metal mattress frame. I stuck the other half of the velcro on top of the first one and then laid the fabric down just how I wanted so the sticky backside of the adhesive velcro stuck to the fabric.

I found that was the easiest way to be precise about the velcro placement.

Can you think of an easier way? I can’t. I’ve tried taping and that didn’t stick, but velcro has been AWESOME and very effective so far.


The mattress holds it down and the velcro is pretty darn secure. This skirt will work perfectly for any wayfair.com cribs when you purchase one for your newborn.

Making a crib skirt is SO EASY with my two methods. You can finally redo and make something you love!

You did a great job! How special that you are making his own bedding instead of doing store bought!

That is a great idea. I usually do it the “normal” way but feel like it wastes so much fabric. I’m due in October with baby #3 and will have to try out the velcro method. So far it sounds like the best way to go.

I’ve been meaning to do this to my crib skirt for a year now! I finally unattached the sides from the panel and then used the adhesive velcro. I’m in love already–no more adjusting the skirt! Thanks for the tip!

Thanks so much for the velcro tip! I’ve just finished with my crib skirt that I made today and it works great. Thanks again.
