This simple Ribbon Christmas Tree art turned out really cute.
Best part was I didn't have to break the bank on a new piece of artwork for the holidays.
What I used:
1. An Ikea frame I had and wasn't using.
2. 3 rolls of $1.99 ribbon I plan to use on my tree also.
3. And just a girl and her hot glue gun (whatch out:)
3 rolls of coordinating red ribbon
You could use any color combo to match your decor.
You could also use different width ribbon for different effects.
I think it would be cute to have several frames grouped
with various frames, colors and ribbon size.
Hmmm maybe I'll have to get on that.
There is definitely more room on the shelf I put this on.....
Starting at the bottom working to the top.
Lay your ribbons out horizontally across the page.
I spaced my ribbons just barely an inch a part.
I also stacked each ribbon on top of the next just a bit shorter on each side.
I'm not super picky, so I didn't measure. But you certainly could.
I also made sure my angles were cut closely and
lined up on the edges of the tree all the way up the tree.
I cut all of my ribbon and laid it out before the hot glue.
Once you have it laid out the way you like it, get our your hot glue gun
and glue each piece a few times.
What do you think?
Let me know if you try your own. I'd love to see how it turned out.
Happy Holiday Decorating.
I have to get back to mine.....
There are boxes and bags laying all around my poor house still.
How come it always must get worse before it gets better????
