Easy Christmas Craft- Ribbon Trees

Hi guys! I am Stephanie from Somewhat Simple and I am excited to share with you a darling (and EASY!) Christmas decoration — Ribbon Christmas Trees!

These little trees are super versatile- use whatever colors of ribbon match your decor, make them as big as you need them, and display them wherever fits best. I’ve used them as an added piece of decor on my mantel, but they’d even make darling name tags for your Christmas place settings.

I made a short video tutorial if you’re more of a visual learner (like me!) or you can keep scrolling to see the step-by-step process:

Ribbon Tree Materials Needed

  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • wood sticks (I found these mini sticks at Hobby Lobby that come with square blocks. They are perfect!

How to Make a Ribbon Tree 1

  1. Cut several strips of ribbon. (The actual size of your finished trees will determine the length you will need. For mine, I cut strips that were about 5 inches long. I could’ve cut them shorter, but 5 inches was easy to work with.)
  2. Tie each ribbon in a double knot around your stick, adjusting the way the ribbon lays as needed.
  3. Trim the ribbon in a steep slant from the top of the tree down to the bottom.
  4. … and that’s it!

Merry Christmas!
