Beads And Ribbon Christmas tree DIY

How to make a cute Christmas tree decor with a minimum of time and money? Use materials which are always at hand! When you have imagination and a little bit of creativity, you can make a little Christmas tree almost from anything: from branches, from cardboard, from Christmas decorations, from ladders. In each craftswomen’s house you can easily find ribbon and beads, why don’t use them? Today I'll show you how to make a Christmas tree from ribbon and beads.
You will need a minimum of materials - ribbon (I bought a Christmas one, but can use any you have at home), beads (better bigger, not too small), thread with a needle.

 Secure the thread on the edge of the ribbon.

 Then thread on a bead. I took two, because they was enough small but larger I did not find at home.

 Fold over the ribbon.  Push the needle up through the centre. Add a bead. Fold the ribbon back, making it sit just a little in from the last layer.

 Continue until you have a Christmas tree shape!
 Secure the thread and then make a loop to hang the Christmas tree.
 I'll show you two ways to finish the Christmas tree, but you can come up with your own.

The first way - wrap piece of ribbon around top of the Christmas tree and glue.
 The second way - wrap several times end of the ribbon inside, so it does not dissolve.
 That's what we've got:
