Ribbon Christmas Trees
I have been sewing and crafting up a storm lately, but almost all of those creations are Christmas gifts, and knowing the recipients would peek on here, I have to hold off posting them.
But here is one I can share.
I saw these ribbon trees sometime during the summer at Hobby Lobby for about $20 each on sale, at least for the smaller one. I was not about to spend over $60 for 3 trees that will grace my table one month a year. So I gathered foam cones, ribbon and ornaments that were crazy on sale at JoAnns during Black Friday weekend.
All you need to make the trees is:
Ribbon cut in 4 inch strips and glued in half
Lots and Lots of PATIENCE!
And about the time your back starts aching from sitting at the table gluing, measuring and cutting, you will have a newly finished holiday decoration!
There are only 2 trees for now because the medium size one in still in the making.
