Ribbon Tree and Wreath

Hello, ribbon lovers! The holidays are here – and it’s time to decorate! Don’t you just love the smells of evergreen, baked goods, and chestnuts roasting over an open fire?

Today’s project shows you how to make a beautiful tree out of ribbon – and the only supplies you need are ribbon, a Styrofoam cone, and pins! Easy!

The tree can be whatever size you’d like it to be; this one stands 16” tall and requires 10 yards of the 1.5” ribbon, including the topper. (Thinner ribbon will require more length.)

And here’s a wreath made with the same looping technique, and a different way to handle the inside of the wreath. This wreath is a 12” Styrofoam form and required 10 yards also.

Thanks for stopping by – leave me a comment and let me know…what’s your favorite holiday decoration to make – trees or wreaths? Or something else?

Happy Holidays!

    Love the wreath and tree, Sandy!  But I really like the pepermints that you created out of the twisted rope, they're perfect on your projects. Thanks for the peak at your ribbon storage.
