Whipper Berry has kept it simple, but stunning! We love her tutorial on making these great ribbon trees! We can totally see these being a year round home decor project.
Instead of folding the ribbon in half (picture on left), I looped it around (picture on right).
First I spray painted my Paper Mache cones black. Then I cut black and white stitched grosgrain ribbon into pieces ranging from 2.5 –4 inches. I started with the longer pieces at the bottom. After looping the ribbon, I secured each piece with hot glue, and finished row by row, shortening the ribbon lengths as I got higher.
On one tree I alternated colors every row, and on the other I alternated each piece.
I finished the top with a bit more ribbon wrapped around the tip.
Now I have two beautiful trees that go perfectly with my new décor!
