Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornaments

Crafters of all ages will enjoy making a primitive scrap ribbon Christmas tree ornament to gift or keep this holiday season. In this post, learn how to use shades of green and brown scrap ribbon to emulate the welcoming branches of a Christmas tree.

  • Straight sticks or cinnamon sticks 6-inch
  • Ribbons
  • Hot glue gun
  • Twine
  • Scissors
  1. After gathering supplies, invite kids to tie the scraps of ribbon down the twig or cinnamon stick.

  2. For best results, bunch the ribbons close together. The ribbons will bend and slightly overlap. Gently tug them into place until you are satisfied with their placement. 

  3. Use sharp scissors to trim the ribbon scraps into the shape of a Christmas tree. 

  4. If desired, melt the edges of the ribbons with a match so the ribbon doesn’t fray.

  5. Hot glue or tie a loop of twine to the top of the tree.

  6. If desired, top the tree with a wooden star, yellow button, or primitive metal star.

  7. Your Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornament is complete!
