Hi there! I am Danielle, from Blissful and Domestic. I am so glad to be here on The Ribbon Retreat again today. In the past I have showed you how to make a Ruffled Wreath, Ruffled Table Runner, Gathered Pencil Skirt and Faux Roman Shades.  Today I am kick starting my holiday crafting with this simple, now-sew Ruffle Christmas Tree Tutorial.

Ready to make some of your own?

Here’s what you need:

Ruffle Christmas Tree Tutorial - No sew or gluing, easy and cute! {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

1 Fat Quarter Vintage Modern Sky Swirl
1/4 yard Vintage Modern Candy Apple Dots
2 Candle Stick Holders (I found mine at a thrift store)
2 Foam Cones
 Antique Mix Vintage Buttons Tin
Straight Pins
Glue gun

Directions:

To start off, I cut my fabric into strips that were 22 inches long
and about 2 inches wide.

Next I took one strip and pinned it to my cone.

Every inch or so, I folded my fabric and pinned it. This creates a ruffled/pleated effect. Each strip will go around the cone once.

Continue folding and pinning your strips of fabric to the cone.

When I got to the very top, I folded over a scrap square of fabric and then
did my last strip over that square. This hides the styrofoam cone top.

In the picture below I am showing you what it looks like without the styrofoam covered. Not so pretty right? Cover it and then do one last ruffle in the coordinating color.

My trees weren’t done yet. They needed a little bit of vintage button love. I grabbed a few of my favorites from my Vintage Button Tin and hot glued them to the ruffles. Last, I hot glued my trees onto my candle sticks.

I love that these are no-sew. They take very little time to make and are so festive for this holiday season. Make for yourself or to give as a gift.
