  • Alligator Clip
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • 4 ¼" brown grosgrain
  • 2 ¼" green grosgrain (2 Pieces)
  • 2" green grosgrain (2 Pieces)
  • 1 ¾" green grosgrain (2 Pieces)


Step-by-Step Instructions

Line the alligator clip with the brown length of grosgrain...
..., from back to the top and around the inside of the top part of the clip, as shown in the picture.
Use one piece of the 2 ¼" piece of grosgrain and glue one end at the base of the pinch (see picture), then fold the ribbon up, and overlap the piece already glued, but slightly above it, giving it a three dimensional effect.

Mirror this with the other length of 2 ¼" grosgrain.

Continue up the clip, using shorter pieces as you go.
At the top you may see a little bit of the brown ribbon (or stump of the tree), it is OK, as you will put your tree topper here.
I made a tree topper out of red 3/8" grosgrain ribbon, just made a very basic bow and glued it on top of the tree, but you could use buttons and all kinds of different tops! 

You could add colored sequins to the green ribbon to look like ornaments.
