Ribbon Tree {Guest Post for Adventures in Mommy-Land}

So you can guess how excited I was when one of my fabulous Homemade in December co-hosts, Charlene, from Adventures in Mommy Land asked me to share a post about a dollar store craft. After a stroll through the store one day, I ended up grabbing the materials for this little beauty…
Seriously, could not be easier! 
Here is what you need:
Stryofoam cone
Ribbon, any kind, mine just happens to be shear
Hot glue and gun (always always always buy your hot glue from the dollar store, maybe the biggest value!)
A bow for the top, I just had this on hand but you could either buy one at the dollar store or get the ribbon and make one. 
Scissors
This is one of those 1,2,3 repeat…. about a thousand times types of projects, but that just means it is incredibly easy to do! 
First you cut your ribbon to four inch pieces (or whatever length you want), fold and then hot glue onto your styrofoam cone.
Go all the way around until the first layer is done. 
Then go up about an inch and a half or so and do your second row. 
Then the third.
And the fourth.
And after the fifth you glue a piece of ribbon around the top and then add your bow! Done!!
 How cute would it be to have a bunch of these in different sizes and colors all over a mantle or side table?!

    Good to know that dollar stores sell those Styrofoam cones! I’ll have to keep that in mind.

    Cute project, too!
