5 Ways to Use Ribbon on Your Christmas Tree
#1 | The Waterfall Effect
Cascade mesh ribbon vertically down your tree for a billowing, waterfall effect.
#2 | The Classic Wrap
Weave wide mesh ribbon horizontally between the branches of your Christmas tree to achieve a full, textured, and colorful look. As you wrap the mesh around your tree, scrunch it as you push it into the branches to make it look elegantly draped. Ready for a pro-tip? Create a cohesive look throughout the house by using the same style of wide mesh ribbon in other rooms, like wrapped around your banister, woven through your mantel garland, and tied into a bow on the back of your dining room chairs.
#3 | A Handful of 4 Point Bows
For a sweet, gift-ready tree, tie classic little four-point bows around the ends of your tree branches from top to bottom. The end result? A tree that looks perfectly prepped for Christmas!
#4 | Pouf Bow as a Tree Topper
Use wide ribbon to make a tree topper! Make a pouf bow or classic four point bow for the top of your tree. Keep in mind, the bigger the bow, the better! For a personal touch, accent it monogram plaque .
#5 | A Sprinkling of Ribbon Bunches
You can also create little ribbon bundles to use throughout your tree like ornaments or fill up any empty areas. Knot a segment of ribbon. Push the center of the bundle into the branches of the tree and let the ends of the ribbon cascade naturally down the side of your tree. Repeat until you have a tree full of beautiful ribbon bundles!
