Ribbon Christmas Decorations

It must be nearly Christmas. How do I know? Apart from the date, obviously. I know because Boy 3 is bouncing off the ceiling. When he came out of school yesterday I thought his teachers must have given him coffee!

The Advent Calender is up, the pockets are stuffed and the sweeties are being eaten. The decorations and the tags with the Christmas story on are slowly making their way onto the boys’ tree. Instructions how to make one of these can be found here!

The tree for downstairs is still in the cupboard, so the decorations I have been making are in a box, which is filling up nicely.

Here are some ribbon Christmas decorations I’ll be putting in it.

These are very easy and quick to make. Christmas ribbon could be used but any ribbon will look Christmassy once it’s up on the tree.

You Will Need: 60 cm ribbon and 1 button for each decoration, needle and thread.ribbon christmas decorations

1. Cut the ribbon into 4 15 cm pieces.ribbon christmas decorations

2. Take one of the ribbon pieces and fold in half to find the middle. Fold the ends into the middle so that they are overlapping. Hold with a few stitches.ribbon christmas decorations

3. Repeat for the other three pieces of ribbon.ribbon christmas decorations

4. Layer the pieces on top of each other so that they make a star. Sew together with a few stitches.ribbon christmas decorations

5. Sew a button onto the centre.ribbon christmas decorations

6. Sew a loop into the back of the decoration at the top.ribbon christmas decorations

I'm Anna and I live in Norfolk with my four beautiful boys, my husband and a three legged cat. I don't have an actual craft room due to the fact that we are six messy people living in a not very big house. I do however have a pile of unfinished projects. Thankfully there is plenty of room in cyberspace, so make a cup of tea, pull up a chair and make yourself at home! And please leave me comments! And maybe like me on Facebook :)
