The inspiration: (From Pinterest)
The Supplies You will Need:
I would say like 8 spools of ribbon (4 yards each) should suffice.
2 clay pots (paint to paint the pot)
2 Styrofoam balls (One rectangular one for the bottom of the pots)
A wooden dowel for the stem of the tree
Hot Glue Gun
Cut the Ribbon into about 4 inch Strips (I messed the length up a few times- too short too long- I do think the larger you get the more it will look full like the tree on pinterest. I messed up quit a bit and ended up sticking between 3-4 inches) I of course coordinated the colors to Declan's room.
DO NOT Pin the ribbon like this like I did the first time:It will look like a Christmas tree

Than Paint the pot. I also decided to paint the stem of the tree- I tried using more ribbon down the wooden piece and didn't like it. I may repaint the stems light blue to match the room more. I may be going back and also adding tissue paper (like the pinterest trees) instead of the grass.
And they turned out like so:
I will be making a few adjustments to these- but here they are so far. They took FOREVER (I watched like 10 episodes of vampire Diaries while finishing this. ) The materials were a tad bit expensive- but if you already have ribbon you like that will cut down A TON of the cost. There ya have it- Ribbon Trees in all their glory. :)
