Step 4: Add Ribbon Bundles to the Tree.
To add each ribbon bundle to the tree, I placed it far down one of the branches, and then wrapped one of the wire branches around it to keep it secure. If you have a real tree, just use some wire to secure it.
Next, I spread the ribbon out and tucked the ends into the tree randomly. I wasn’t picky about it at all. The idea is for the ribbon to look as if it’s just falling naturally into place.
Step 5: Repeat.
I repeated this process a bunch of times, until I had covered the tree relatively evenly with ribbon.
Step 6: Add ornaments.
Once I was finished positioning the ribbon, I added the tree ornaments, placing some behind and some in front of the ribbon.
I like how the flowing bundles of ribbon really help to fill in empty areas of the tree.
