What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I don't recommend using a foam floral cone like I did. It was a mess. Use a regular Styrofoam cone for this project.
What you will need
I used ribbon
a floral foam cone
a used pre-made gift bow
Q&A with TheCraftFloozy
i love it...thanks for sharing...i want to make it now!!!
Lol! That's how I was. I had all the supplies for about a week or so and was itching to make the thing. It's funny how certain craft projects can get you all excited.
I would love to make one that is all one color, white, gold or silver. I guess even green :) This is really cute. and looks so easy. How long did you cut the ribbons? Did you cut them all at once or as you needed them?
I cut the ribbons about 4 inches long. I wasn't sure how many I needed to complete the project so I just cut them as I went along. If you click on the above pattern link, it will take you straight to my website where I have the full instructions on how to make the tree.
