How to Decorate a Tree with Ribbon
There are just two elements to this eye-catching tree: A strand of lights and a few ribbon spools. Here's what blogger Kelly of Talk of the House accomplished with 35 yards of red grosgrain ribbon.
Ribbon does three times the work on this tree. It's ornament, garland, and tree topper. Here's how to put this cheap supply to task in you Christmas tree trimming. Tie a quick bow on the ends of branches. Looking at the tree in horizontal sections, we tie it on one bow every foot or so. Ribbons natural home is as garland. Drop each loop about six inches as you go around and around the tree. A multi loop bow serves as the tree topper. Assemble this bow off the tree, slide over the trees high point and let the ribbon ends cascade down. The best part about ribbon? It's reusable. When Christmas is over, iron the ribbon on low heat to get rid of creases, and wrap back onto the spool. Decorating your tree just couldn't be easier. [MUSIC]
