How to Decorate a Christmas Tree With Ribbon

I have a really easy way to add ribbon to your tree. Below is a video that shows step-by-step how to decorate your Christmas tree with ribbon. But, first let me show you a few photos.

Cut your ribbon, or ribbons between 18" and 22" long. Cut the ends at an angle.

Fold the ribbons in half and create loops.

Using floral wire, wrap around ribbon and twist wire. Make sure you have enough wire left over to attach your ribbon to the tree.

Fold bow in half at the floral wire.

Push bow into tree and attach to the branch with floral wire. Done! I promise adding ribbon is not difficult, the video below will show you exactly what to do. Good luck! And if you have questions, just ask!

    Beautiful tree 🌲 I use fake flowers on stems to fill in holes as well. So easy to do and pretty.

    Also for artificial trees put real Christmas tree branches here and there. You can pick them up free at most Christmas tree sales places. 🌲❤️👍

    Curious about the door. Don’t use?
