Style Session – Ribbon Technique

Ribbon TUCK METHOD

Your beautiful designer ribbons have arrived and now the time has come to start decorating! As hard as it may seem you will now have to CUT your ribbon.

PRO TIP: make sure your scissors are SHARP. We suggest having a pair of scissors dedicated to your ribbons. Pack them away with your decor at the end of the season.

Step 1: Starting at the top of the tree take your first 36in long strip. Tuck the end into the tree. No need to attach with wire or a branch you are simply tucking to secure.

Step 2: Now create your first  “swoop” and tuck again. Tuck far enough to hold the ribbon in place. It should look as though the ribbon is weaving in and out of the tree.

Step 3: Repeat the process as many or few times as desired. the more loops you create the “dressier” the look will appear. Fewer loops gives a more relaxed whimsical look.

Step 4: Once you get to the end of the ribbon you can tuck the tail or leave it loose.

Step 5: Repeat the process with additional ribbons.

Pro tip: When tucking move at an angle back and forth on the tree. This helps move the viewers eye around the tree as they admire your handy work!
