I saw some trees made with ribbon in the display window of a shop that sells very expensive handbags. They were so cute, I knew immediately that I would have to try to replicate the idea! It was SO easy, I knew I had to share a tutorial with you!
What you'll need:
12" foam cone
9 yard of 1.5" wide wired ribbon
hot glue gun
extra hot glue sticks (I probably used 6 or 7)
pinking shears (optional)
Step 1: Cut a bunch of 2" strips of ribbon with your pinking shears. If you don't have shears, you can use regular scissors and cut the end in a "v".
Step 2: Hot glue the ribbon strips to the bottom of the foam cone, like so.
Step 3: Continue gluing ribbon to the bottom edge until it's full. You can overlap if you have to.
Step 4: Start the next row of strips just above the previous row.
Continue doing this...
...until your cone...
Step 5: Now you're at the top. This is a little trickier, but still no big deal. Fold the top edges of the ribbon in to form a point and glue in place.
