How to Make a Ribbon Tree Tutorialcomments (1) December 3rd, 2009
original post can be found at www.yellowsongbird.blogspot.com This is my first tutorial so let me know what you think! :)
So I saw something similar to this, but on a large scale at Victoria's Secret last week. I know...sketchball.
I made it this morning and took step by step pictures so y'all could make them too! They're going for about 25 bucks on etsy...and it's way more fun to make your own! I spent about $12 on ribbon & the styrofoam trees. The rest I had...I started with one and will be making two smaller ones later.
ammo aka glue sticks
4-6 types of ribbon in different widths.
Fabric Scraps (optional. i just like the way frayed fabric looks!)
Step 4: (optional) Cut out a circle of fabric & glue it on top to make it look more "finished"
I then made a bow on top....
and regretted it. it's a little much.
so, here's the finished product with the bow cropped out. :)
p.s. i highly recommend listening to Nat King Cole's Christmas Song Pandora Station or Sufjan's Christmas CD while making these. do it.
