2″ wide ribbon
¼” or ½” wide ribbon
Cut out branches according to the provided template. For a fuller look, cut additional copies of the smaller and medium sized branches.
Back each branch with a color coordinated chenille stem, securing the stem in place with hot glue. This will stiffen the branches and allow them to be hand-shaped for a more natural, wild look. Secure the longest branch to a length of 2″ wide ribbon with a rubber band.
Gradually add more branches by sliding each one under the rubber band. Position and hand-shape each branch to your liking, then cover the rubber band with the thinner width ribbon and tie in a bow to finish the look.
