These are very easy to make. All you need is:
A glue gun
A styrofoam cone
3 or 4 spools of ribbon about 7/8 inches wide and about 4 yards in length
A small Poinsettia pick for the top of tree
About two hours
- I started at the bottom of the styrofoam cone and hot glued 4 inch strips of ribbon that were folded in half.
- Continue hot gluing strips of ribbon using a different color for each row.
- Once you reach the top of the tree, add the Poinsettia pick in the center pushing the pick all the way down the top center of the cone.
I usually buy ribbon when it goes on sale at Michael's to make these trees. I have made several in different colour combinations. Use your imagination! I think my next ribbon tree that I make, I am going to add some sequins to the ribbon to give it some more sparkle.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and are inspired to create a ribbon tree. Thanks for stopping by!
