What you'll need:
- foam cone (choose your size)
- at least 7 different types of ribbon (your choise of color combinations)
- straight pins (a pack of 100 should be plenty)
Now that you have all your supplies you are ready to start pinning. I cut each level one at a time just to make sure everything worked out right. So start at the bottom and work your way up. Take the ribbon piece and fold in half, pin each corner of the ribbon into the cone and work your way around the bottom layer. Then start on the next layer, keep going until you reach the top. To have a more finished look I ran a ribbon around the top to hide all the pins and sealed in place with a hot glue gun. Be careful to not burn your fingers!! To add a little extra fancy I made a loop out of a ribbon of choice and hot glued to the top of the cone (this will also hide the remaining cone that is visable). You can always top it with something a little more cute like a star or an angel, but we use what we have right!
I hope you dont pin the crap out of your fingers like I did mine, but I think that may be inevitable. If you have some cool looking ribbon trees please share them here I would love to see what you created!
