Colorful Christmas Tree Centerpiece
Blog land is just full of Christmas inspiration, diy projects, and Christmas decor. Guess who still has pumpkins on her mantle? This girl! I just can’t bring myself to pop the box on the Christmas tree until after Thanksgiving…call me crazy!
With that being said… I know it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet, but I am joining with some of my color loving blogging buddies to bring you some colorful Christmas inspiration. One little Christmas project won’t blow Thanksgiving, right?

Until just a few days ago, I had no idea what I was going to do for this little get together. Then this past weekend while strolling the isles of our local Meijer, I saw my inspiration and this project was born!
Don’t forget to pin for later!
It was super easy to make, minus the glue gun burns to my finger tips (note to self, wear a glove next time) and I am going to share the easy tutorial with you.
- Cardboard Christmas Tree Form
- 3 colors of ribbon, I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby
- Glue gun and glue sticks
Making your colorful Christmas Tree Centerpiece
- Cut ribbon to lengths of 5 1/2 inches
- Fold in half and secure with a dot of glue
- Decide on your pattern and start gluing.
- As each row progresses up the form make sure to put the new row centered in between the ribbons of the previous row.
See? I told you it was easy! A few notes to keep in mind
- buy enough ribbon…who knew that 5 yards of ribbon isn’t 15 feet? Yep, this girl!
- after securing your ribbon with the dot of glue, use a flat iron (yes, a flat iron. Necessity is the master of invention) to iron it flat if you don’t want the silhouette of the tree rounded and puffy. Once on the form just use your flat iron to give it a little flip on the ends…just like a hair style 😉
Such a fun project! Now I want to make some more, what colors would you use? Would you opt for traditional colors and would try something colorful like this one? I would love to hear what you think in the comments below.
