Christmas tree ribbon

HHassist's picture

I'm in the middle of putting ribbon on my Christmas tree (instead of tinsel), and I'm wondering if there's some sort of trick to it. The tree is in a corner, so the ribbon doesn't have to go all the way around the tree. But it looks kind of funny in the places where I'm doubling back. I'm kind of twisting the ribbon as I go, but it doesn't look quite right.

I'm using ribbon with the wires down the sides, so I can position it how I want it and where I want it to some degree

Anyone have any suggestions on how to make this work??

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm still adjusting the decorations and ribbon on the tree, and I bought another roll of ribbon to fill in some gaps. Tinsel is much easier to hang, but I have to say that I prefer the look of the ribbon :-)

I think I understand the vertical hanging concept. It's probably too much work to re-do all the ribbon this year, but I'll keep that idea in mind for next Christmas.
