Having little handmade ornaments to attach to your Christmas presents makes the gift twice as nice! There’s no need to buy many supplies. Just gather a few friends and pull together what you have to create fun festive little ornaments like this Ribbon of Christmas Trees.
- Dry Twigs (about 5 to 6 inches)-gathered from outside
- Ribbons of various colors/textures
- Buttons or other jewels for stars (optional)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Twine or yarn for (hanging option)
Once you have the supplies on hand, all you need it time. Gather friends of all ages to create Ribbon Christmas Tree gift tags and/or ornaments for this holiday’s gifts/trees. Begin by cutting ribbon in various lengths. Then tie them from the smallest to the largest on to your twig to create a Christmas tree. Use scissors to trim ribbons accordingly and/or leave them in various lengths for added personality and whimsical touches of children.
If you want your Ribbon Christmas Tree gift tags/ornaments to have added stiffness to them, try using ribbon stiffener to them when your are finished tying on ribbon.
Our inspiration for this project was found on Pinterest, HERE! Thanks Fireflies and Mudpies for the visual—-and a reason to gather around the table with friends.
The children that worked on this project were 2, 6, 6.5, and 9—and since the weather was unseasonably warm, Mommies finished adding the ‘button’ stars to each (Be prepared to add finishing touches!).
Have yourself a crafty season!
