These little Ribbon Tree Christmas Ornaments are a lot of fun to make! They are easy and quick which makes them great for last minute projects, gifts and craft fair items!
Ribbon trees have been around for a while! I remember making them when I was younger, except then we used craft ribbon, beads and a hot glue gun! This time making them, we will begin by crocheting our own ribbon.

I have seen a few other crochet ribbon trees around. The main difference with this one is that I have added a few different crochet stitches to give the ornament a little bit more texture. In this pattern you will find single, half double, double and triple crochet stitches. The pattern consists of one row before the ribbon is folded into its tree shape. Vary the beads in order to give your tree a different look.
For this pattern I have used a 100% cotton yarn called Dishie by WeCrochet. You will need a small amount of yarn, about 10-20 yards total.
You will also need a 3.5 mm crochet hook.
The pattern will be written out in full below and always remain free on my website, however if your would like to purchase an ad free PDF or add this pattern to your library, you may do so from my Etsy or Ravelry Shops Below:

Free Crochet Pattern:
Row 1: Sc in the 2nd ch from your hook, *hdc in the next st, dc in the next st, tr in the next st, dc in the next st, hdc in the next st, sc in the next st; Rpt from * across. (121 sts)
Fasten off, weave in your ends.
To fold the tree, begin at one end and fold over at about two inches (The end of your ribbon should extend about 1/2 way across the bottom of your tree). For the next level, measure about four inches and fold ribbon over in the opposite direction. Continue folding the ribbon back and forth decreasing the length of the folds until you come to a point at the top. My tree had about 5 folds on each side.
Using your needle and thread, begin with a bead at the bottom centre of your tree and thread the thread up through the centre of your tree adding another bead every two layers of “ribbon.” When you come to the top, add on more bead. Remove the thread from your needle.
Return to the bottom of your tree and once again thread the bottom end of the thread onto your needle. As you did before thread the second end up through the centre of your tree being sure to work once again through all the beads. At the top, secure the final bead and tie the thread to make a hanger.
