Every year I love to make some kind of repurposed tree project, and this year I created a trio of trees using repurposed gift bows.
Quick & Easy DIY Gift Bow Trees
I found these gift bows at my local dollar store. They're about 2 inches across, give or take, and are perfect for this project.
Because they're small they fit nicely when working with styrofoam tree cones.
For my first tree I'm using a 9 1/2" styrofoam tree cone, and I decided to do it in rows of bows. I used my hot glue gun to put them in place.
TIP: Remove the sticky thingies on the backs of the bows first. They won't stick to the styrofoam for long.
I continued my way up the cone, alternating the green, gold, and red bows.
When placing the bows, make sure they're nice and snug so you don't have gaps looking through to the cone.
When I was finished I added a red bow to the top, but you could add whatever you like.
Here's a random variation I did with a 12 inch cone.
And here's a sparkly version with just gold bows and a red bow tree topper. For this one I used an 8 inch cone.
The possibilities for creating these trees is as limitless as the colors and styles of bows out there.
Whatever your Christmas decor style, there's a fun and festive gift bow tree that could be created to work for you.
