Growing up in West Virginia, I saw every type of Christmas tree craft you can imagine. From starlight peppermint candy trees to faux pearl-tipped pins inserted in large sequins that covered the styrofoam tree form, I always marveled at how many ways the ladies at my church could (and would) embellish a tree. When I discovered the ombré ribbon in the Waverly Inspirations collection, I knew that there was a modern version of the ribbon tree in my near future.
I love this DIY for its simplicity and its colorful, nostalgic take on the ribbon candy holiday tradition. If you don’t have a chance to craft it up for this holiday season, bookmark it now for next year and be sure to have a few young helpers around when you make it. The younger set loves to help set up the scene where your tree will live!
