Ribbon on a Twig Farmhouse Ornament

This is a simplistic ornament. You can make these with any color ribbon to fit any decor. It really didn’t cost me anything. I used a twig from my yard and ribbon and berries from my stash.

Mom and I are finished with all our Christmas Crafts and I have some leftover Christmas Ribbon. I am obsessed with RED this year. So that was the color scheme of the first tree I made. I am also obsessed with TREES this year. I plan on painting some soon. Christmas will be here before you know it. Where did the time go?

See below for more details of how I made this.

First on the list was to choose which tree limbs are the straightest and cleanest. I use my clippers to cut them down to the size I want.
This one was the straightest.

I again forgot to take pictures WHILE I was making it. But below are some pictures of the finished tree. I plan to go live on Facebook and do another one in a different color.

All finished!

I think it is homespun looking. Primitive, rustic, farmhouse or whatever word you use to describe it. Here is a word for it….CUTE.

I saw this done somewhere on the internet, but mine looks totally different because of the different ribbons and colors.

I put berries at the top. I am fresh out of stars.

I did not tie a knot. Only a half knot. This ribbon was not the easiest to work with because some had words that I had to keep straight and some did not have the design on the backside. But it was worth the extra time. All the ribbon had wire.

I put a hanger on the top but mine stood on my mantel by itself against my little trees.

Thank you for reading my blog about my twig tree!!
