Christmas Home Decor Crafts: Ruffled Ribbon Christmas Tree

Ribbon Christmas trees are a very popular handmade craft this holiday season. Here is our Bowdabra version, I used ruffled Create Ruffled Ribbon Bow with Christmas Treeribbon, a cork tree trunk, and I finished it with a Mini Bowdabra bow. Decorate your home this Christmas with these festive ruffled ribbon Christmas trees or give them as a holiday gift!
