RIBBON christmas tree

Another scrap ribbon project! You will need:

-Patterned Ribbon Scraps - the amount really depends on the size of your ribbon, it could be as many as 300, 4 inch long pieces if you are using 1/4 inch width ribbon or much less, if using larger widths.
-Pins
-Styrofoam Cone
-Star ornament for the top

Start from the bottom by pinning ribbon pieces all around the base, allowing the ribbon to overhang slightly past the base. Then apply the next layer like you were shingling a house, in an offset pattern. Repeat process until you get to the top of the cone and finish with a festive star topper.
