I thought I would give one or two a try and make my own version of a mini tree. This first one is a simple mini Christmas tree with ribbon.
What I Used:
The How To:
It was a struggle! You can see my attempts below. No matter what I did, the ribbon would not conform. Even when I tried to scrunch it, it looked awful.
So what does a good DIYer like me do? Instead of giving up “gasp” I just tried using a smaller ribbon.
Again the same problem. It was even harder to work with this because it would not stay in place at all!
Did I give up?
I used a few pins on the bottom to secure the ribbon.
And for the topper?
The gold ribbon folded up like so to make a bow.
I made two of those toppers to give it more balance and let the ends drape down the sides.
And once I got over my ineptness all it took was a few minutes.
Jennifer of Busy being Jennifer also made a ribbon mini tree but she used a different method.
What is the lesson here?
Never believe what you see on the internet?
If it looks easy, it’s not?
Stay away from ribbons?
Go buy a mini tree already decorated?
Of course not!
Just think outside the box and come up with your own version. One that is doable for you!
And that is my version of how to make a Simple Mini Christmas Tree with ribbon.
Have you ever tried this and had as much trouble as I had?
