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?

This post contains affiliate links, you can read my full disclosure here.

Christmas inspiration for a great holiday season.

I know these talented ladies will inspire you to get decorating as soon as the last dish is dried and put away after Thanksgiving, so don’t forget to visit each on of them at the end of this post!

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!

Easy DIY Christmas tree decor for anywhere in your home.


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.

Supplies needed

Making your colorful Christmas Tree Centerpiece

  1. Cut ribbon to lengths of 5 1/2 inches
  2. Fold in half and secure with a dot of glue
  3. Decide on your pattern and start gluing.
  4. 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 😉

    Oh I’m diggin the flat-ironed center piece. 🙂 It has a regal pagoda look that would look great with chinoiserie decor. But I love the puffy version, too! It’s so fun and flirty! So happy to get two versions in one tutorial. I’ll be making these!! Thanks so much for sharing. XOXO ~~ Susie from The Chelsea Project

    So cute, and so smart to double up the ribbon. The colors you chose are beautiful, and that trick to curl them….brilliant. I would not have thought of that 😉

    Thanks for joining our first Colorful Blogger Blog Hop, it was so fun to see everyone’s creativity come to life!

      Thank you Liz!! There was no way I was going to try to iron those little strips of ribbon with my clothes iron, lol!! Plus they wouldn’t have ended up with that little flip (I use to be a hairdresser 😉 )

      Thank you Joanne! And thanks so much for pinning 🙂 The flat iron trick evolved out of necessity…no way was I going to try to iron all those pieces of ribbon with my clothes iron, I doubt my fingers would have survived it, lol!!
