Ribbonista Christmas Card Ideas- A Simple Skewer Tree

May Arts ribbon Christmas card ideas

This week I’m happy to be a part of the May Arts Ribbonista Christmas Card Ideas hop! Its a full day of Holiday cards from the best of the best May Arts Ribbon design team!

Easy Christmas card ideas from fynesdesigns.com

I experimented with lots of different ideas for making trees this year, like my DIY bottle brush trees, and my 99¢ funnel trees, but I came up with these simple skewer ribbon trees that can be made in about 1 minute!

You’ll need a BBQ skewer, twine (I used May Arts twisted burlap ribbon ) or ribbon, and a May Arts satin cut-out star.

Easy 1 minute Twine Christmas Trees

Cut strands of twine, knot in a single loop around the skewer, stacking one on top of the other, until the tree is at the desired height. Trim the tree and poke the pointy end of the skewer between the two layers of the star.

You can make these little trees with ANY ribbon. The one below I made with luscious May Arts silk ribbon and bakers twine.

    1. I made the cards pictured the next size up from A2, if you cut your cardstock a smidgen smaller, it should give the necessary leway. They actually don’t have as much dimension as you’d think! Good luck!
