How to Put Ribbon on a Christmas TreeWhen decorating an artificial tree, you will need to fluff the tree before adding the ribbon. Decorating a simple Christmas tree with ribbon takes only minutes, adding a ton of visual interest. The first step is cutting the first piece of ribbon about 36″ long. I will use two ribbons on this Christmas tree; however, sometimes, I use three. This post may contain affiliate links. That means I will make a small commission if you purchase from one of these links. Trim the ribbons’ ends into a chevron by folding them in half and cutting it diagonally towards the center. Treat the striped ribbon on top of the red ribbon as one ribbon. I start adding the ribbons by tucking one end of the ribbons into the tree. Then weave the ribbon in and out of the tree. Note: This is the tree I am decorating (a 7-foot tree), and I am using a wired ribbon. Every 10 to 12 inches, pinch and tuck the ribbons into the tree and then continue.
Christmas Tree Ribbon SuppliesHERE. Before you purchase ribbon, I want to share tips and tricks: look for a 25ft or larger roll of ribbon and use a wire-edged ribbon if possible. Of course, you can use any ribbon, but I like 2″ to 3″ wired ribbons. Place your next rows evenly spaced and follow the first rows as a guide.
Tree Decorating with RibbonContinue the same manner as the first ribbon row, adding each row until all the ribbon rows are on the tree. Once you are satisfied with the placement of your rows, add the next piece of ribbon cut to 36″. Push the ribbon into the tree behind the first ribbon. Continue your pattern of hanging the ribbon on the Christmas tree. Always step back and see if you like the placement between each loop.

Christmas Tree BowI like to make the tree topper bow from the same ribbon I used on the tree. I made two of my double ribbon bows (see how to make this bow HERE), wired them together, and then placed them on the top of the tree. You can find more Christmas decorating ideas HERE. Another bow that would look gorgeous on your tree is the easiest bow ever (see how to make one HERE). How to make DIY Embroidery Hoop Ornaments. I made the Christmas stockings last year with this pattern. Also, I needed a place to hang them, so we made the blanket ladder (see how to make one HERE). I made the adorable Gnome look like a Santa Gnome (see how to make one HERE). At Home, Mr. Kippi whipped up the tree stand box for our new tree (see how he made it HERE). While decorating your tree, play your favorite Christmas music and enjoy some hot chocolate and cookies. The adorable felt Hot Cocoa garland was made by my daughter (see how she made it HERE).
