Ribbon Tree

As promised here are some instructions on making the Ribbon Tree used as the table centerpiece at Camille's 4th birthday party.

Approx 20 yards of fabric (I used rolls of 4-5 yards from the Dollar Tree and Michaels so about $5 in ribbon)
Round Styrofoam ball (from Michael's)
Decorative Cardboard Box (from Dollar Tree)
Tissue Paper
Dowel (from Michael)
Styrofoam square to set inside Cardboard Box (from Dollar Tree)
Straight Pins (from Walmart)

After assembling the tree. I cut the ribbon into small 1.5 to 2 inch pieces and then looped and attached with a straight pin. Do one and repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat! This part was a bit boring and tedious.

As a reminder, here is my inspiration found on Pinterest.
