Post of Christmas Past! Easy Ribbon Trees

Here is a Christmas Post from last year!  I thought I would share it again since it is such a fun and easy craft for the holidays! 

Here are some cute trees that will add some whimsy to your decor!

Here is what you will need:
Cone (found at a craft store)
3 kinds of ribbon
Straight pins OR Hot Glue Gun

1. Cut your ribbons to 4 inch lengths.

2. fold your ribbon in half and attach it to the bottom of your cone.  You can with pin it on or use hot glue.  I found that hot glue was faster for me. and the ribbons stayed in place better too.

Here is how I Hot glued it:
I put a blob of glue on the foam cone, then placed the unfolded ribbon on it so that the back side was facing up.  then I put a blob of glue on the ribbon and fold it it up. 
Continue adding layers of ribbon until you get to the top of the tree.



3. Finish off the top. 
Put a line of hot glue from the top of the cone and done to the next row of ribbons. 
Place your ribbon on the glue wrong side face up
put another line of glue on the ribbon and fold in half. 


4. Finish off the top.  I add a loop with an extra piece of ribbon.
These trees are so fun because you can pick the colors to match your house!
