Plaid Ribbon Decorative Cone Tree

 Decorative cone trees are everywhere during the holidays! The possibilities are almost unlimited when it comes to decorating them!  You can find all types made with just about anything! 

I love decorating cone trees! I've had in my mind to wrap a cone much like the bottle I wrapped with ribbon here. It's similar to the popular knotted jute netting design, only I just overlapped the ribbon instead of knotting it.  And in keeping with my purple buffalo plaid decorative theme this holiday season, I'm showing you how easy it is to make one using wrapping paper, ribbon and stick-on buttons.

  Purple Plaid Ribbon Decorative Cone Tree
I love making cone trees to decorate my home. I have them everywhere and I try to make a new one each year. I was truly excited to make this one. It's been on my mind for a while.

Materials:
Paper Mache Cone
Embossed wrapping paper
Fabri-Tac Fabric Glue
5/8" Ribbon 
Push-pins
Hot Glue
Stick-on Decorative buttons

First, roll out the wrapping paper on a large work surface and lay the cone down on the edge of the wrapping paper. Gently grab the paper and cone together and begin rolling at an angle.


 Pay close attention to the tip making sure the paper is tight against the cone.

Finish rolling the cone until you meet the paper edge where the paper started, getting a good fit. Cut off excess paper the length of the cone.


While holding the paper together, run a bead of Fabri-Tac glue along the edges. Hold in place until the glue adheres - it only takes a few seconds. Insert glue around bottom edge between paper and cardboard and smooth out for a snug fit. Let dry and cut off excess paper at cardboard edge.

Next, cut eight -30" strips of ribbon. Turn cone upside down and space ribbon ends evenly around base of cone using push pins to hold.

Once satisfied with placement, add a small dab of hot glue to tips of ribbon and secure to cone base.


It's so much easier to work with the cone upside down for most of this process. To begin, take two strips of ribbon and criss-cross about two inches down, pulling ribbon tight, making sure ribbon is flat and add a dab of hot glue between the crossing ribbon. Press down and hold in place until secure. Continue around cone, criss-crossing ribbon and adding hot glue to hold - to form the first row of four groups of crossed or overlapped ribbon strips.

Start the second row by criss-crossing the right ribbon strip of one group with the left ribbon of the group beside it and hot glue in place, as before. Continue around on the same row until all ribbon strips are crossed and glued. 

Repeat the previous steps for each new row - taking the ribbon strip from one group to criss-cross with the ribbon of the other group next to it.

Continue criss-crossing the ribbon for each row and gluing in place. 

As you get closer to the top of the cone, the ribbon becomes closer to each other, and can become challenging to cross or overlap because of the width of the ribbon and the narrowness of the cone tip. Take your time with this.

I used push pins to help keep the ribbon straight and grouped.

Continue on until reaching the tip top, cutting off excess ribbon and using fabric glue to seal. 


And finally, add stick-on decorative buttons where the ribbon crosses. Make bows to glue onto the top for an extra cuteness!

I haven't decided where I'm going to place this adorable tree. - I haven't decorated for Christmas yet, but it's going to be a "WOW" factor wherever it's placed!

  7. Gail this is such a pretty Christmas tree. I think the ribbon going up like that makes it look so special and the way it intertwined towards the top. It almost looks like a reverse ombre effect.

  28. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    It's very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    You've got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
