Christmas tree of satin ribbons

Most mothers were faced with the need to make any crafts for their offspring. And it does not matter if he goes to a kindergarten or a school, his handiwork should be better, and you owe it to him. With such a proposal came to me and my son. At the New Year's exhibition in the kindergarten, he needed to make a Christmas tree. After a little consultation, we decided that we will not resort to standard hand-made articles from the tinsel mountain. Ultimately, the following list of required materials was determined.
materials

  • Satin ribbons of various colors;
  • sheets of paper (you can use absolutely any waste paper);
  • scissors;
  • glue (I chose the moment crystal);
  • any thread with a needle;
  • beads;
  • some tinsel.

First of all, we need to build the base of the Christmas tree, the material for which will be paper. For clarity, I took the usual sheets of paper for an A4 printer, but you can use any other. The sheet must be folded so as to make a cone. The edges are coated with glue.In order to get the desired length (in my case 30 centimeters), simply glue the additional sheets on the bottom of the cone and increase it to the desired parameters.

To make the base of the Christmas tree even, after building up, we postpone the desired length from the top to the bottom in several places, and carefully cut off the marks.

Second phase. I decided to choose satin ribbons of various colors and sizes as fir branches. For the needles, I took thin ribbons of different shades of green (width 0.6 mm.), And for toys orange and violet (width 25 mm.). We cut them into segments of the desired length, I took 16-17 cm.

Now we begin to fasten. For splendor, it was decided to mix all the thin ribbons in bundles. Bend in half the segments face out, and fasten their ends.

In the photo I just glued them, but then I came to the conclusion that it is better to do this with a regular thread with a needle, securing it with a couple of stitches. We perform the same procedure with wide sections of ribbons. Now, in order of priority, we paste the blanks on our cone.

Do not be afraid of sticking threads, they will close with the next layer of tapes, so they will not be noticeable. So, by alternating, we glue the entire base of our future Christmas tree.

Thus, retreating a little space up, glue up most of the Christmas tree.

I just pasted the top of the Christmas tree with an orange ribbon. So our forest beauty began to appear even more fluffy.
Stage Three. In order to decorate the Christmas tree, I pasted beads on wide segments of ribbons imitating toys.

Also, a certain design of beads was decided to paste on top of the craft, it turned out something like a garland. Well, in the end of the work, I gave the craft to be torn to the child. He could not wait to add a little tinsel. Not long twisting it in the hands, it turned out an interesting tip, which became an ornament instead of a star.
