Supply List
• Wire Edged Ribbon
• Twist Ties
• Scissors
• Tree Topper

Step 1: Cut Your Ribbon
Ok, this is the one and only math portion of the project. Take the height of your tree and double it. Cut six lengths of ribbon to the length that you figured out and lay them out on the floor. Collect the six ends together in your hand and secure them with one of the twist ties.

Step 2: Secure Ribbon to Your Tree
Now that you have your grouping of ribbon, go ahead and secure them to the very top center of your tree using your second twist tie. Don’t worry about the ends; your tree topper will cover them up later. Spread the six ribbons out evenly around your tree.

Step 3: Tuck the Ribbon
Starting at the top of one of the ribbons, tuck the ribbon into the center of the tree every foot or so. This will create nice even bubbles of ribbon that add depth and dimension to the tree. Continue to do this to all six ribbons. When you are done, add your favorite tree topper over the ends of your ribbons and you are ready to add the ornaments of your choice.
