One of our recent projects were these adorable Ribbon Christmas Tree Ornaments! This project has been around for many years...I can remember making these myself when I was a child. Furthermore, you only need a handful of inexpensive supplies and they work up really quickly. Each ornament took us less than 30 minutes to make.
Kid's Craft Project - Ribbon Christmas Tree Ornaments
Twigs 5" to 6" Long
Various Colors of Satin Ribbon
All Purpose Craft Glue
Hanging String or 1/8" Wide Satin Ribbon
Place a dot of glue at one end of the twig and wind a piece of brown yarn around the entire length of the twig, securing it at the other end with a dot of glue. The entire twig should be covered with the yarn. This serves as the trunk of your tree.
Once you've reached the top...lay the ornament down onto the table. Use a pair of scissors and trim all of your ribbons into a triangular shape to form your finished tree. The ones at the bottom will be longer than the ones at the top.
Take a piece of string or a piece of 1/8" sating ribbon and tie it into a hanging loop. Add a spot of glue at the top of your ornament and place the knotted end of the hanging loop into the glue. Add another spot of glue on top of that and add a satin ribbon bow and decorative button on top of that. Let your ornament air dry for approximately 4 hours.
This easy Christmas craft project is great for kids to do! The ornaments work up quickly and are inexpensive to make. A nice project for scout groups, classrooms or church youth groups too. They can be used as package toppers, hung onto a Christmas tree or placed all over the home to add some holiday cheer!
