    First, gather your supplies. You will need a styrofoam cone, small sewing pins, ribbon in different patterns and holiday colors, scissors, and a button or other notion for the tree top.

  • Step 2: Cut your ribbon

    Cut various ribbon into smaller pieces, about 3-4 inches long. The thickness of your ribbon and the size of your cone will determine how much you need.

  • Step 3: Start ribbon at the bottom
